    Vehicle : Vectra Estate

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : CDTI 150

    Year : 2008

    Default Headlights

    Hi, I realise this subject has most likely been discussed to death but I'm new so please forgive me......

    I have a facelift Sri and have been through various bulbs trying to find something that gives the best combination of night vision and looks...I currently have 6000k hid bulbs with 35w ballast boxes and they are not bad..I do have 55w boxes but they tend to flicker quite a lot (so do the 35w but not as bad)...any ideas why?

    I have tried led bulbs and they are ok but not brilliant and I have issues with my led sidelights blowing when I had the dipped beam LEDs fitted

    Also I have been looking at changing the whole headlight units for halo ring units..seen a few on eBay that look quite nice

    Any suggestions???

    I'm using 6500k with 55w a/c with anti flicker capacitors. Its flicks on start up for 5 seconds then settles.

    If you set the headlight to Xenon it should stop flickering, iirc.

    The best way would be to research the massive amount of info thatís held in the forum about it so you know all the aspects rather than come across each issue at a time.
    There should be loads in the modifying section further down as well as in here when people have put the posts in the wrong place.
    There might be some how 2ís but I canít remember it was over 6 years ago when I did mine.
