    Lightbulb Facelift HID Problems?

    Hi folks really wanna get some HID's for the car been on about it for ages now.

    One thing that it not wanting me to get them is a bulb flicker/ problem
    so im making this poll to see how many peolpe have had problems with them on a Facelift with the low beam kit bought from HIDs DIRECT

    If they do become a problem is it easy to change back to a normal bulb?
    Could it be done at the side of the road?

    If you get the warning cancel resistors with the kit you should not have problems and if you have ever changed the headlight bulbs before, then thats basically all you'd need to do to change back so easy to do at the roadside.

    Don't have a facelift but have never had problems.

    Does starting the car with headlights on cause any problems.

    Should be perfectly fine, when you open the box you do think OMG lots of wires, but when you plug it all together it's rather simple. The hardest part is getting your hands in the car to put the HIDs in unless you take the airbox out.

    No you just cut a hole in the headlight cap to allow the wires to pass through, no cutting of wires at all. I have facelift and HIDs and have no issues at all either. Would highly recommend them

    I got 35w 6000k good balance between brightness & whiteness. Think 50w aren't road legal but might be wrong
