I can't recommend them more than enough, they are UK based and have excellent customer service. High quality kits at a low price. No chinese cheapies from Ebay here. Thats an excellent price, especially with a 2yr warranty.

Re: OT - reduced price HID

I have now installed these on my dipped beam.
Absolutely no modifications needed with the poly headlights. Everything tested and fitted within an hour.
Initially I thought they might just look smart from the outside but the improved visibility is astonishing. If you thought standard Bravo/a headlights to polys was a step up this will really surprise you.

If you can afford this mod - grab it with both hands.

There you go Al.

6000k is slightly blue.
As a comparison. The next cheapest digital kit I found was in Allwoods Automotive and they wanted 130 for 8000k output which is too blue for my liking.

Re: OT - reduced price HID

Well can't comment on legal side but my Brava went thru its MOT fine with my 6000K HIDs. No washer jets or self levelling lights (which I think is the requirement) installed.


Brava: Mar '99 1.9TD / 48,500 miles
Coupe: Feb '97 20V N/A / 129,000 miles

Re: OT - reduced price HID

Rascal - that sounds more like advice than law. The installation manual describes a similar thing: "make sure the headlights are kept clean by stopping regularly or using headlamp washers".
I imagine its to do with the glare from a dirty lens - much the same as having a dirty windscreen, inside and out.

Re: OT - reduced price HID

Allan, most if not all of todays aftermarket kits don't require you cutting a single wire, they have spade connectors that connect to the +ve and -ve within the headlight.

Regarding the legality of HIDs they are 100% illegal if they are fitted to a headlight that was designed to take halogen bulbs. Polys with HIDs are illegal. Autolevelling and headlight washers are only for cars fitted with HIDs as standard, not aftermarket.

I have had HIDs for 3 or more years now and never had any problems with the Police or the MOT people.

Re: OT - reduced price HID

just wondering does anyone have pics of their hids and what kits they have. Maybe from inside and outside the car. Thinking of getting a kit but want to see what experiences other people have had!
