Hid Installation Situation

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I have been searching for a couple of hours about installing HID's.

I've established you need projector headlamps, which I do.

I was wondering if anyone has fitted these to their original projectors? As there are some sort of bulb holder adaptation things Im not sure I would need? My bulb holders are in a tub like device you pop the top off to get to the bulbs. They're held into the projector lamp via a metal bracket which goes horizontally across the bulb to hold it in. I was under the impression I wouldn't need the adaptor things as the HID bulb is a H7 anyway so should be the same fitment.. the only problem would be routing the wires, but I can drill a hole and insert a rubber grommet.

This is the link to the adaptors:

Also any ideas which kit, I was gonna go for one of these two:

Thanks, am really confused and been searching for so long now!!

You won't need the adaptors if the HID kit is an H7 bulb, the first kit you linked to will fit, just get a low K one for the best light output. The second kit will brighter still as its a 55w kit.

I got someone to fit mine for me so I'm not much help,

All I would recommend is that you go for either 4300k or 5000k bulbs for best light output!

Thanks for the replies. Went for the second kit as bungers said, thanks!! And went for 4300K as mentioned too.

Was gonna go for 6000K but dont want any chavvy blue in it, cant stand that when they're buzzing about in their 3 cylinder corsas blinding people!!

I had 6000k and the blue was alright, not too much however light output wasn't too great..

5000k is a pure white which is what I've got now.
