    ^^^^^^ dont buy them, they will not work on a Vec C.

    I bought them first off and they didnt work at all, the CANbus on the Vectra C's system makes the computer think the bulb is blown and stops sending it current. You can get around this with a 55W resisitor, but its a ball ache as there isnt a lot of wire and its a fiddly position if your not removing the bumper.

    I used Mtec 4750K H3 Fog lights, and they really are the next best thing to a proper HID kit.

    They arent a complete colour match to the 6000K xenons, but they are much better than the ****ty yellow standard ones.

    HID kit with capacitors which would be required around £60

    Mtec bulbs above are £9.99...
