    Question HIDS in a mk 3

    hi folks was wondering if it worth putting a hid kit into my mk3 estate, it currently has xenon max lamps fitted. would there be a big enough improvement over these or would it not be worth changing over also i read that some kits are for 'canbus' systems any help would be great many thanks

    You just need a normal set for the MK3 (MK5 uses Canbus) with the correct bulbs. What are fitted in the MK3?

    You will notice a big difference

    the lamps fitted are H4 pattern with a 3 pin conector on the base of the bulb the only HID kits i have seen so far are all H7 which i think are the type with a seperate dip and main beam bulb i think could be wrong and if so please tell me

    Its worth getting them checked yes but they shouldnt charge if they dont need aligning,
