    Default Xenon

    Howdy.

    My car was born without xenon but i plan to install it so i have a question or two..

    Are there any good aftermarket versions? I heard that you risk damage to the electrical systems.
    How easy is it to buy the original xenon and install it?

    Thx in advance!

    xenon bulbs are poo i had them on my vec and took them off, i got a pair off 100w bulbs in atm, there better, but compared to rickroos hids at the meet there crap, hids are well worth the money, so bright and white

    but make sure there designed for vec c or they set the comp off

    I have Xenon bulbs and for how cheap they are they do make a bit of difference specially if you do the headlight adjustment mod on one of the how 2's ... well for £20 im not complaining.. (halfrauds BOGOF)

    So, were the Xenons a straight swap ? or is it not that easy?
