    Red face Today's Top Tip...

    When fitting an HID Kit - don't look at the bulb when you turn it on for the first time to make sure it works.



    Typing this with a huge light spot in the middle of my vision isn't the easiest....

    Let the government have a go at what you have done then. They might see the "Light at the end of the tunel". At the moment there is only a glimmer.
    Bet your lights are a whole lot better than the "old" one,s.

    To be fair, I could fit a couple of candles up the front end and they would be better than they are at the moment...

    For reference people, it's the MTEC Kit specifically for the Vectra C. I know a lot of people have fitted the other kits and not had any warnings, but I decided if I was splashing out some cash on a kit, I might as well get one that I could guarantee would work, in case I had to send it back for any reason. With one bulb connected up and the other bulb the standard halogen, all was well with no warnings...
