    Default Vectra C Headlight bub Upgrade

    Hi There

    I wonder if anybody can help me as i want to upgrade the bulbs to get a brighter view of where i'm driving.

    Does anybody have any recommendations on bulbs?

    Also are mine just H7 bulbs? 07 plate Vectra c SRI 1.8?

    Many Thanks

    Mark

    Dipped = H7
    Main = H1

    for the facelift.

    Osram NB's don't last very long. 8 months for me, and others have mentioned they have a short life too.

    HID is the way to go.

    Big Daves is correct! on the facelift main beam is H1 and dipped are H7 The Insignia is the same.

    On that I am certain.. I bought enough of them.

    Earlier models were both H7

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for the information, think I will change the bulbs first and then look into HID later.

    How much would HID's set me back?

    Cheers

    A set will cost about £46 all in for a HiD kit, and cancellers, see this thread..... http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99405 post 8 has the links. A decent set of Halogens will cost upto £30 so its a no brainer for these.
