I fitted HIDS.....best £45 spent.
So I took the plunge, seen as it's winter and the roads are not great at the moment...ice....standing water......pot holes.....
Thought I would share that I have recently replaced my H7 candles for a pair of 35W 5000K HIDS and have absolutely no regrets.......except I should have done it ages ago.
Install was very easy, except for finding somewhere decent to mount the ballasts, I'll probably end up making some brackets to bolt them onto.
As for blinding people......I've not been flashed by anyone and set to No.1 they give a nice crisp white light across the road. 5000K gives a nice White color, I was worried about going any higher they would be to blue/purple.
A massive improvement when driving on unlit roads as well.
If anyone else is thinking of it, I highly recommend it.
