    Unhappy which, what and how??

    hey people im definatly ordering a set of HID's for the preface vec tonight, just a few quick questions

    -has anyone had a set from HID's direct are they good products and does their vec c specific kit definatly bring up no errors??

    -are they easy to fit and by easy i mean a blind monkey with a hammer could fit them??

    -and also whats the legal stuff on colour temps i know about all the reflector/projector stuff but can i have 10k with no worries from Mr MOT or the police?? if not are 8k good enough

    - and finally whats the difference between 35w and 50w are the 50's visably better or is it wiser to just have 35's and save money??

    i really would appreciate all your help cheers guys.

    I bought the 35w 6K HID kit from HID's Direct specifically for the Vec C, installation is easy enough with the how2 guide on here, and haven't had a single issue mate. Headlights are infinitely better...

    Hiya mate don't be put off by the lack of response at your question it's just that this has been covered many times if you use the search there have been many people asking the same questions but many of us including me have bought HID's off them, mine are 50w 4300k you might be hard pressed to tell the difference between 35w and 50w i can't comment about the temp but 8000k should be fine someone else might have a better idea. Dead easy to fit some people have problems it seems to vary from car to car just make sure you get the bulb warning cancellers you may need them hth
