    Exclamation HID headlights

    Hey guys, I don't know how well this will go down.. but I'm taking the plunge and buying some angel eyes, with plans to fit a HID kit I've been offered for £25..

    Just want to check before I buy these;

    It says they have GLASS lenses so are they HID-Friendly?

    Cheers in advance guys

    I would say yes, and would also like to say that getting HID's with angel eyes is a must.

    You'd be best to try a before and after thing though, just so you can see the difference.

    Oh by the way, I've got a Mark 3 (Old yes I know) :P These £24.99 HID kits scare me though.. although i've seen other guys on here take the plunge and buy 'em, and they look fine.

    Mk3's are not old by any means!

    I've spotted some on ebay for £25 also, but they don't seem to be branded.. check these out:

    Will do mate, I just got £450 for selling some crappy old rover, so I'm getting a new stainless-steel backbox fitted and some of these lights, but I can't put them on until I get some projector lamps (Like the ones of those angel eyes).

    My astra is currently sat in a garage with no engine so now's the time to think of mods, lol.

    Oh, yeah, that happened to me as well. Cue piccys of my astra in the bodyshop last week





    Only difference was, mine was parked up and some gimp reversed into it!

    The pictures in the ebay link seem to be complete. Might be worth a try IMO, its only £25 after all!

    I put my HID's in near 2 years ago and never blew a bulb yet. And I had 2 sets on! Full beam was immense with a set of 8000k whites!
