Well as you may all have seen by the 2 posts about this I have been putting in dual headlamps and a HID kit into my 1.2 beeza.

Anyway ITS DONE ! WOOOOOOP

The lights where aligned this morning and should be spot on when I go out with em on tonight lol. Dual headlamps much better, and what can I say about HID lights there just amazing halogens r crap.

Pics below let me know what u think.

With just Dual Lights fitted


Comparison of the HID to Halogen (you can guess which is which)


HIDs fitted on both sides

thats identicle to the kit I used, just a diffrent box. Yep all u do is plug the contacts from the HID into the old bulb connector connect the new bulb 2 the balast (all plug connectors) and turn it on. Really easy

I used 6000k wouldnt use 8000 like in that pic, and there exactly the same price unlike what it says in that add

no they worked in the end, must have been a wiring thing in that they wont just work with the High beam bulb, or I might have cocked up but was a straight swap in the end, even the level adjusters went in fine

yep lights are a straight swap and HIDs are total easy to fit as well, HIDs are as simple as velcrowing balasts to the engine bay, pluggin in all the wires, drilling a 25mm hole in the back of the light pushing cables through and pluging in. So easy. Best mod I have done so far cost me about £150 all in thats HID kit new headlamps, H3 bulbs.

I do need to put coolent in as I forgot 2 screw the cap on after checking it and drove round DOH! lol. As can be seen in the picture lol, in the picture it is inbetween the 2 markers but its not anymore lol
