    Default HID Which Kit and where

    After a set of HID's for my 2006 Vec XP

    Thinking about an 8000 or 10000k set, not sure which.

    Which bulbs have to be changed all in all.

    Heard its the H7's I need?
    Which other bulbs require changing?

    Is it worth doing the fog light's as well?

    Any help asap is useful as want them ordered ideally today so I can fit them before the weekend.

    Been looking Ebay but not sure who to go with, or what bulbs etc required

    4k to 6k is the best the 8k 10k 12k just show more blue and less distance. 4 is the industry standard fitted to all cars. I have 6k with clips to suit your car fro £50 plus postage. Same as I have just fitted.

    Best..???

    4.5k gives the most light, anything above turns blue (until 12K which are more purple) and gives off less light (but still loads more than Halogen) - the best (I would say) is the one which YOU like the look of most

    just not sure which bulbs are required

    obviously i need the H7 but are there others in the head light worth changing?

    You are best to change to sidelights too (501 push in types) purely as the std ones will look very yellow next to HiDs. These are the only ones you "need" to change.

    Any others is upto you.... fogs have been done before, not sure on the type though, I think they are H3's - not 100% though.

    Does yours have cancellors too..??

    Never seen the need for the clips though, as with a simple snip of some pliers, the OE ones can be modified for a nice tight fit (with the HiD wires fed through).
