    but still dont see how it could work lol... damn

    @Maskel - the bulb holders on my astra h sports hatch 08 are not the ones in that PDF file, it is a black block. ill see if i can get a pic.

    heres the pics of my HID's as u can see the wire is moulded onto it so i dont see how it can be help on.

    here images of the mk5 bulb holder!
    as you can see the bulb fits directly into it. so i dont know what options there are (ps: pics taken via my Nokia n95 )

    for anyone who is intrested or needs help. sussed out how to do it thanks to dp88's thread on the astra owners network forums

    if you look at this Pic


    u can see two pins holding the black connector block onto the metal bulb holder. if you can take it off. you will be able to put ur hids thru the metal clip



    problem solved lol.

    Cheers!
