    Default not a vec question but i need advice

    My daughter has a corsa sxi with vxr kit .08 plate.As she does a lot of night driving on unlit country roads she would like her headlight's upgraded.The corsa has the headlight's that follow the steering.Can we fit HID kit's to this car.we aer not sure as we were told that on this model there is no room inside the light to fit this kit.Any advise would be gratefully accepted.

    If the bulbs are normal, the lenses are glass, try 100w bulbs instead of 55w. Not entirely legal but if alligned properly they wont cause anyone else a problem and certainly brighten your drive!

    I wouldn't go this way - maybe it's a solution for a short term but IMO deffo not the right one .

    And you're still illegal - I'd prefer ebay HIDs - illegal as well but won't do any harm to the lamps, wireing, etc.
