Cheers Andre, better change them back
Just wondering..... These only do the dip beams, do i need a seprate kit for the main beam?
You would need a seperate kit for each set of lights i believe mate
As I have Xenons at the moment, can I just change the bulb for say a 6k one ? Or do I need a HID kit etc ?
Different xenons may give you slightly different colour temp, but if you want an real choice you would need a HID kit
hi ive just fitted the 6000k to my b sri the drivers side is brighter than the pass any ideas my this would be thanks
Could do with some better bulbs. Standards are not that clever. May have to invest.
Its illegal to fit HID bulbs into anything other than a projector or an HID designed reflector, anything that uses a bulb with any designation other than D** (D2S,D2R,D2C) is not an HID suitable lamp. The reason for this is that the reflectors are designed to scatter light where as HID reflectors focus it, thus, fitting and HID into a halogen reflector will send shards of light in all directions if its segmented reflector bowl and a dull hazy light if its a smooth reflector bowl since its not focused.
There are some exceptions such as the cheapo angel eye projector headlights you get on ebay and the like, that offer a halogen bulb fitment into a projector, fitting and HID into one of these would be fine since it is a projector and more essentially has the required cut off plate.
Can anyone point me in the direction of if you can get sidelights like these. I put 5k ones in earlier and OMG cant believe i used the yellowish bulbs. Such a difference
Hi chaps... I'm a bit confused!! Doesn't take a lot I know. So wot kit do I need for my vec c then? Was gonna do the dip and main beam... Someone also said hid where no long mot legal??
Here we go again lol
HID's are perfectly legal as long as the light pattern is set correctly!
HID's are best left to the dipped beam tbh mate, as when fitted to the main beam, they wont get enough time to heat up and produce the correct amount of light
this is what you want I have the exact kit fitted don't go any lower than 5k as they will have a yellow tinge ideally either 5k for white or 6k with a very slight tint of blue
put these in your dipped don't bother with the main beam
also pick up a set of mtec 501`s for your side lights they look blue in the picture but they give a nice white light similar to the 6k colour temp hid bulb
As for the mot pretty much what Dave has said its only a fail if they are not aligned correctly or if you have a headlight washer system fitted which does not work
Cheers guys. On order, was gonna do all of them all but if it ent worth it ill just do the dim beam
Stick a set in the fogs as well mate
Are they the same kit pal?
Think you'll need a H3 kit for the fogs
fogs take h3
you will need this kit so you don't get any bulb errors
Get them ordered when I get paid again. Thanks guys
Daft question time....
IIRC there is an option in Tech2 that tells the car that HID's (AFL Xenons) are installed.. would it be a good idea to have this turned on? I know that there is a issue on VW's and Skodas if its not enabled and something else is done it fries a major component..
like i say daft question and most probably wrong
