    Default HID's

    Having read every all the threads on the HID kits i could find, I decided to get some for myself.

    I must say the look fantastic, but... at times when the lights ore off, they pulse for about 30 seconds. The kit I fitted were form hids-direct and have the warning cancellors which work fine(no dash warnings).

    I have found other people have had this with LED sidelights, but can't find anyone who has mentioned it with the HID's.

    So, does anyone elses hids pulse? and would if so would it reduce the life of the bulbs?

    Cheers

    Daniel

    Nope, not mine. Have you tried contacting HID direct and asking?

    Your best bet is to phone them (01617 939236), I tried emailing them a couple of times about a faulty ballast, but got no reply!

    Phoned them and they were extremely helpful.

    I'll let you know what the say

    Strange, mine's half canbus I think, and mine don't pulse. My LED sidelight's did when ignition off, before I put m-tecs in, and my LED strips pulse with ignition off, but don't light up.
