    Default Aftermarket HID Kits...Any good?

    Hi there, I am a brand new member, so no idea if I'm doing this right or not, but here we go. I have recently upgraded from an '03 LS to an '06 SRi Nav, and am thinking about upgrading to HID's. I have seen a few cheap kits for around £50.00 on ebay, but are these any good? Just wondering if anyone else has used these "budget" kits, and if you've had any problems with them. Thanks for any help or advise you can give!!

    But aren't a lot of people having probs at the moment with these kits, not just HID's Direct... seems to be a thread at least every other day about flickering etc?

    had that kit for a year now, first in my old 05 vectra, now in the fogs of my 07 Signum - never had a single issue...

    Cheers Paul, Let us know how you get on! I'm debating also on wether to get 4300k or 6000k. Which would look more OEM?

    4300 is OEM, but 6K is the next step up, is a lot whiter, looks the bees, and you really wouldn't notice the difference when looking AT the headlights...
