    Default HID cheapest decent kit

    Found a kit with HIDS direct £64.99 which should be ok with the can-bus errors.

    However is there any other kit out there more competitive on price?

    I have always run £30-£40 kits before on other cars with no problems - but didnt have the computer issues to get round.

    Is £65 the best i'm going to get? Sick of searching eby now

    the 50w ones are a bit hitty missy working wise with the pre facelift/half canbus cars

    or jam performance... (on ebay) Mine are fine - though some people have had some "customer service" issues lately with them...

    the best bit of cash you'll spend on your vectra...

    I went for dipped only, H7's in my case. Didn't warrant replacing high beam also as mostly do driving on lit roads. No real use for high beam. Depends if you are going to use them!!

    Main and high beam are the same thing.

    Just change the dip beam bulbs.

    Apparently HID's don't like being continually switched on and off - which they would be if used for high / main beam
