    Not really m8, they are pretty good value for money compared to a set of expensive aftermarket "normal" bulbs.

    And an investment too, not only in safety for driving but also due to the fact that they can be removed in a matter of minutes and put back to the standard bulbs - meaning you can move it from car to car if you sell ( assuming the next car you get has H7 fittment bulbs ).

    HID's-Direct are still doing MTEC kits for Vectra-C owners club members at a discount - see the "How2" thread for more details.

    Heard good reports on those, yeah.

    Do a search of the forums m8, quite a few folk have fitted them recently, there's loads of info on them.

    Having tried loads of different types of bulb upgrades and finally going for an HID kit, I can't say I would go back to "normal" H7 bulbs though.

    The HID kits really are that good.
