Mikester, can you take some photos of how you've got your HID Ballests and stuff in place? Really interested in getting some for my fez but can't find any pics of them fitted anywhere! Posted Image



yeah sure, i'll take some photos when i've removed a lamp in the sub 2 min region.... lol


but to give you an idea, i used sikaflex on my first set (rather than the pads provided) to secure the ballasts to the under side of the lamp, so they're completely out the way. but this time around i've used the pads and even with the stiff coilovers on a daily commute on bumpy roads they're still attached, so the pads are just as good as glue/sealant.


there's a mod you'll need to do to your metal clamp that holds the original bulb in, it only needs stretching slightly to allow a cable through before putting it back into shape. i'll do a guide if there's enough demand...

Lol. Youre right, it'd get deleted and I'd be suspended for proactively influencing users to fit 'illegal' parts.


I'll just get you a pic when I next open the bonnet

There not illegal, they just won't pass an MOT thus making the car unroadworthy, that's the illegal part.

The reflected lamps with HIDs just look like they weren't meant for xenons, whereas projector style lamps look executive and can pass HIDs off really well. Also the glare and light dispersion is non existent on projectors. You'll get this on reflector style lamps unfortunately.

If it's any consolation I had HIDs on my mk6.5 for 2 years and never once had a problem, no bother from police and noone flashed me :)
