    Thumbs up Another HID victim!

    Hi people have just become the recent victim to the HID bug, got the following kit off of Ebay was delivered very quickly and had everything needed including warning capacitors, modified holders and clear instructions. I got the 8000K and I am amazed with the result a major improvement!!

    Now thinking what to do with my main beam, looking at the 50W kits for that anyone know also good sidelights that look white that will go with the dipped beam!

    I thoughrally recommend this modification took all of 1 hour to do both.

    Link to ones I got:-

    Be careful Swith the main beam as when you first start the lights they take a few seconds to warm up making them a bad choice for main beam flashes and super white bulbs are better o ive read!

    there not a bad choice for main beam

    i have them , when you flash there not as bright as they should be but still brighter than normal but after having them on for 5ish seconds there great , people told me before i got them that they wouldent even work with out them even knowing about them , i have 3 sets on mine , full, diped and fogs , i would get them if you do a fair bit of night driving on unlit roads but if not just get some diffrent bulbs hope that helps mate
