    You need a kit that is acceptable for use with a canbus system.

    Or fit a cheap kit and get someone with Opcom / Tech2 / AN Other Dignostic software to turn off the xenon setting in the cars brain.

    +1 on the HID's direct kit. Been in the Vectra for 6 years come june and never had a problem with them. I got the kit with resistors to prevent bulb failure warning.
    Mention this forum and you get 10% off. Recently bought another set from them for my Bimmer.

    HIDs Direct get both good and bad feedback - mainly their customer service, or rather lack of it.

    When I was shopping round for HIDs, google kept throwing up negative feedback about HID Direct.

    I ended up buying from www.hids4us.com . At the time they were the only ones offering 2 yr warranties on their HIDs.

    I've got a pre-facelift with HIDS fitted. Got them from HIDSDIRECT. Just make sure you get the CANBUS PRO kit & use the cancellers to stop the bulbs from 'strobing' & giving a bulb failure warning. No need then to have the Xenon activation done as some might suggest, save your money for something you actually need!

    Also, I didn't remove the bumper/headlights to fit them, just removed the washer bottle filler neck to do the nearside & removed the airbox to do the offside. Nearside ballast/canceller went inside the battery box & the offside ballast/canceller was cable tied to the aircon pipes behind the headlight.

    I got a canbus terminator kit off we-sell-hids back in jan, all ok so far.

    TBH from reading on forums I think they all sell the same kits, built to a price in China, 90% of kits seem to be fine, but some are doa when you get them. Luck of the draw really.

    Best way to cver yourself is to email Hids-Direct with your car details and aske them to advise you of the best kit. If it's wrong then the onus is on them. I do that every time I order from them and no issues.
