    Default Hid or not? question to you all

    Hi all,

    I have just ordered a genuine replacement offside headlight for my Vec c SRi. It is the tinted one and it came from a Vauxhall dealer on ebay.

    It states that it is not suitable for Xenon "HiD" lights

    Now I was thinking of upgrading to HiD's as I have converted my motorbike and its an awsome conversion.

    Is it because the light is plastic? although HiD's generate a lot less heat anyway.

    Can anyone explain why this might be as I have read a lot on this forum about doing the conversion and have seen no mention of non compatability.

    Regards ... Jon

    Factory fit Xenons (as opposed to aftermarket HID kits) need different headlamp units. If you want to fit aftermarket HIDs there won't be any problems with the standard headlamp units.

    HIDS4U do good quality kits that won't trigger the bulb failure warnings

    You can fit HID's in it. As its from a dealer they probably mean its not a xenon factory unit.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
