    HID and Aftermarket Lights question

    Does anyone know why the lights I have would not be able to be combined with HID's? As there is a sticker on the back of them saying no HID. For the full effect my lights really need to have HID's! I have seen plenty of people with HID's on angel eye headlights.

    What lights do you have fitted to your Zafira?

    Don't HIDS use less power? so surely they would not give off so much heat?

    Yeah that's normally the problem.

    What bulbs do they take? Maybe someone has a HID you can try.

    I have HIDS on my angel eyes no problem.
    Although the area where the bulb goes through has to be dremel'd out to accept the HID bulb.
