    Default New lights

    It's probably already on here but could we make a sticky - As the lights on the Vec-C are appalling!

    I'm after some new bulbs, for dipped + main beam, but do not know where to start looking.

    Everyone rates the Osram Nightbreakers, so I feel they may be a good start.

    Do I need the whole HID kit? or just a simple swap of the bulbs? Is this legal without changing anything else?

    Im put some NightBreakers in my B and they are great! The previous standard ones were unebelievable poor. BUT, I also did Duncan's headlight mod to get a little more reach out of them, but I think they have since become a little cockeyed due mto me getting a little tooooo excited with the alan key!! Haha!! !


    Bye bye Vec B

    You think the Vectra and Signum range is hard to do......... Take a look at a Meriva drivers side..............NO WAY.......... I need to remove everything to change that one........luckily my mother usually smashes her cars before bulbs need replacing

    The only difference I noticed when I fitted nightbreakers was the high beam was better. Dipped was still the same. I then followed Duncan's advice for raising the low beam setting slightly, and now my dipped beam is much better. I still don't think changing the bulbs made any difference though, dipped wise anyway.
