    HID bulb direction

    do HID bulbs shine in a certain direction in relation to the igniter on the bulb or anything as ive recently fitted some only the igniter on the drivers side is facing to the left as you look at it from the front and the light seems to shine quite alot in the same direction.

    any advice anyone?

    The 'Tab' on the bulb should be at the top.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    when i fitted mine they did not need to be at any angle as its a reflector headlight. So just fit them in so there tight, turn on and they should be fine. I think...

    Cheers
