    Whats the best H7 55w HID kit to buy and fk angel eye headlights in a 888, thoughts?

    Looking on ebay there are kits from about £30 upto about £90,

    Whats the difference in kits?
    Are the more expensive ones easier to fit or just better quality (plug and play)?
    Is there any other makes not on ebay that people would reccomend?

    Also bought some fk angel eye headlights but not sure wether I should fit them as I have a 888, what do people think?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Yeh I noticed the canbus kits for the mk4. They are about £100. I don't mind paying the money but I don't know if there is a great deal of difference between them and the cheaper ones!

    Oh I assumed canbus was the make! What is canbus then? I just had a look at the listing on ebay for the 'H7 55w Canbus HID Kit' they look good but if I don't need 'Cabus' then what are the best kits?
    Thanks.

    CANbus is a wiring control system used on later cars, e.g. Vectra-C, Astra H, Newer BMW's, etc.
    TBH, with ebay all the HID kits will be coming out of China anyway, so just go on price & warranty offered.
