    Default HIDs Installed!

    Well after much waiting I finally plucked the courage to do my HIDs... In the snow? haha!

    The weather started off good with just a gentle breeze and by the time I was putting it all back together it was full on snowing!

    After a quick response from a few kind people on here the bumper was off! (with a bit of man power to rag it; as i was tryingto tickle it off before! )

    Once off the job was quite easy, just connected the relays, ballasts then drilled the holes threw my caps and it was done!

    Lights back in..


    Hey Prestoo..


    I'll have pics onhere later!

    well done, this happened to me last year when I was lowering my Astra. Got 2 springs done and then it started snowing and the sun started setting, got it finished but couldn't feel my fingers. Which wasn't a bad thing because I tend to get a lot of cuts when working on a car

    HIDs are one of the best mods you'll do and you've done them at the right time of year when you'll get lots of use

    HIDs one of the best mods to be done, this'll be one of the first mods I'll be doing when I get my Veccy, my Astra has them fitted from the factory and the difference over halagen is imense
