Hid Bulbs

Personally I wouldn't put HID's in the main beam, as they need a "warm up period" so won't be able to cope with flashes etc. if you put them in the dipped beam, just get some upgrade bulbs to 5-6000k for main beam so there's no yellow

I had HID's in both, the flash is fine but the warm-up then kicks in on the main beams and makes it a pain when you need them for high beams. Bi-Xenons get around this problem by only having 1 bulb for dipped and main beam, which us Fiesta owners can't do I'm afraid.

I'm thinking exactly same Danny.

Have settled on 6000k to match cree sidelights wonder if anyone has got a recommendation for which HID Kit to buy? I like the sound of the ones on autobulbs direct but they are £90before our discount. Those on eBay sell for £25 ish but many don't carry a brand. Any help appreciated.

Had them for 2 years on 2 cars and they work great :P

Thanks Dave, that's a much better price. Can I just check though I thought dipped beams are H7'son the MK7.

You need to poke a hole in the rubber cover on the back and seal with some duct/electrical tape to keep water out, but aside from that they're not so bad.

The plugs can be a pain to get through the holders, but they do fit with a good push :P
