    yes you can on ebay. I've got some and fitted them today, then quickly took them off as for some reason they turned my lights PINK. I have no idea why but clearly they don't work with every kit........ANYBODY got any ideas??

    i made these circuits about 2 weeks ago (am electrical/mechanical engineer) iv not had any probs since. the vectras are a right pain in the bottom to trick when it comes lights and people know this thats why you pay more for a kit made for vectra's. these circuits cost me about £2 each to make and it stops and flickering (you may come across this to) to get them this cheap i ordered everything in 10s so i can make a few more free of charge, if you want some let me know.

    I'd love a set mate if you don't mind? Let me know what I owe you and I'll sort you out. I have NO idea how to wire them up though!

    Thanks,

    yes this will cancel all errors and stop and flickering (as i believe it vectras pulse standard headlight bulbs,which doesnt show up but its evident on HID bulbs)
    wirinng up is easy. you normally plug your HID ballast box into original light holder, well you just plug this in the way if that makes sense. like this...........
