it wont trigger your bulb warning light as the system doesnt apply to the headlamp bulbs probably because if one of your headlights goes out you tend to notice and if you dont you shouldnt be driving :-) ive done a few of these conversions with no problems. the kits off ebay are good quality and ive not had any problems with them some offer 2/3yr warrantys, be carefull which bulbs you go for though as you dont want to look to smurfy driving down the road, remember the bluer the lights the less effective they are most recommend 4300 bulbs for the road 6ks tend to be to purple. goodluck and enjoy they make a huge difference especialy as alfa leadlights arnt the best.
good reading that, however im more than happy with my Hids they offer me alot more light on dark roads and ive never been flashed, when i fitted them i did adjust them down a tad, if i had problems mot time it would only take 15mins or so to slot standard bulbs back in for the test, which imo is worth a years worth of better vision.
The H7r's bean pattern definitly looks well and my mates E36 M3 passed the mot with them. Can't say an Alfa will but you have a better chance with them than standard H7's. I'd only put 4300/ 6000k bulbs in becase anything else looks tacky
It's all well and good fitting HID's, they may give better lighting while you are driving, but it is one thing I would personally wouldn't fit!
I would tend to think of the poor sod who has to sit in front of me while I am magically dazzling them into thinking that a rozzer is coming through fast, obviously taking their attention from what is in front of them. Or maybe the other poor git who is coming the other way and I have just blinded for a split second ...
I guess if they were really needed, Alfa would have fitted them as standard to all models, maybe going out once every couple of days and cleaning the headlights of dried on grime is too difficult a job these days
Yessssss! Nero black, Black momo leather, sunroof and air con in a 156 2.0 twin spark..... = Heaven, pure heaven
Anyone can give advice on cars like "replace this part, replace that"... Start with the simplest solution and then work your way through it logically... Its a hell of a lot easier and cheaper!
