Just managed to install all the lighting I wanted. Interior LED's make a HUGE difference and the car has a fresh, crisp, new feel to it now. Not particularly good for sex in the car, since now I can see all the yet unsurfaced zips of any girl that steps inside. The LED puddle lights are like turning a flash-light on to look for a lost set of keys or something.
Still, I left a lot of skin inside them headlights.
As a helpful tip (maybe), I did not opt for the classic HID conversion kit. I found something a little easier to use. It's all inclusive (not sure what that means) This is the one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3207837576...ht_5674wt_1163
I went for the H7 type bulb, 6000K temperature. They are exactly as I want them to be. Just at the border of white and blue, with more than a foot inside the white light country. They don't seem after market at all. The ballast has a screw on the middle, I just drilled a large enough hole in the headlight caps that protect the bulb and attached it with the nut dead on the middle. Looks professional, since all the wires are inside the headlight. The rest, it's common sense wire connecting, nothing fancy. I also went for the 8 led bulbs for the sidelights. First pair: canbus errors. Second pair (good I ordered 2 sets): no errors so all is fine. They seem not too bright, but are visible and the indicator lights are visible too, even in night time. That's all I need. In the rear I replaced just the numberplate lights. I think the regular tail/stop/reverse/fog lights look just fine and there is no point in the hassle. The fog lights got replaced with super mega ultra extra iron man green lantern batman ferrari lamborghini H1 halogen mega white and all that ebay advertising crap. Still look just a bit yellowish in contrast with the xenon kit but I'm not complaining. I only use them in heavy fog and I appreciate more the utility than the looks. Not sure how I feel about drivers that run the fog lights during daylight. Makes the car look stupid and begging for attention. But that's just me!
My question now, fellas is about the high/main beam (not sure how to call it, I'm nor from around here and still get confused with all this dipped terminology crap). Mine are ridiculously yellow compared to the Xenon HID kit. I would have no issues buying another H7 xenon conversion kit for the high beam but in my head this somehow does not add up. My low beam kit takes about 10-20 secs to get to that full white light. If I install one for the high beam and I flash someone to go ahead and overtake a lorry on the motorway, not sure if they would properly light up to their full potential. And I do not plan on keeping them an awful lot on anyway.
So (now I get to that question), what would you recommend as a high beam bulb? I want something white enough to compliment the low beam HID kit. Maybe someone knows. I read all the 19 pages of this thread and not really got my answer, except some pictures of some H7 halogens on a Corsa. My high beam is H7 and I am the proud and sexy owner of a 57 plate 159 1.9 JTDM 16v.
All the best and thanks!
