PostSubject: Hid Ballast Conversion kit?   Hid Ballast Conversion kit? EmptyTue Nov 06, 2012 10:31 pm

anyone know if they are any good? I do a long commute to work and in the dark as I work nights and my headlights are shocking so I tried few different bulbs but they really are bad so I have ordered a Hid kit. It plugs into the existing harness so shouldnt be too diff to install.

Does anyone know if they are any good? I read chris's diy on hids but thats a bit much for me I need a simple install and hoping this will do the trick. Ive ordered 6000k ones.

There's a simple setup I use now too (on my and my GF's car), there's a microcontroller on a harness which plugs in directly into the H4 plug on one side. You have to ground it at two points and they connect directly to H4 bi-xenon ballasts + bulbs. Ergo a simple fit and works perfectly, even the high beam indicator works then.

Nice Lee, so you bought the HIDs BEFORE asking about them Rolling Eyes haha

I hope they work out for you. I won't go into all the issues because you've already bought them, I just hope you are happy with them Smile

Ah, so you've got them already? Did you also get a relay wire harness? Honestly I have no clue how to put HIDs in those head lights, you'll have to get pointers from Ishaq.

You might get flickering and other troubles getting them to light, if you do have trouble, it will need a dedicated relay wire harness (like wiring a stereo amplifier).

So it's an H4 kit I assume, does it have any kind of high beam system, or is it low-only?

Oh, well then if it doesn't have a high beam, it should be really easy. Just make sure you never turn on the highs, or your lights will all go off!
