    Post HID Kits (FITTING)

    I did get one before but you have to get correct fitter to do it.

    so will needs to buy one again.

    so does anyone know where I could get a fitter? around Preston - Southport (Lancashire)
    it looks complicated!

    Matt it is simple as long as you have a little knowledge about electronics.

    All you have to do is wire up the Ballasts to the battery operated by a relay on the standard wiring loom, then you have 100% completely safe wiring and your ballast wont fail.

    If you're just fitting the kit to standard headlights, then honestly, >I< can do it, so you're a mug if you pay someone to do it. It really is plug & play.

    If however, you're switching lights, such as angeleyes, then i can't tell you how easy or difficult it is.

    The amount of threads/posts i've read on people having issues with the adjustment motor & problems with getting the beam aligned (even by an MOT centre) on angel eyes on this forum is unreal.

    That's before we even get to the different types of angel eye headlights & how do you know you're getting the sort you need to be instead of the one that can require stupidly expensive bulbs if you get the wrong set (i didn't know this until recently, but found out when i read a thread on a guy who bought, assuming there was only 1 sort & he found the hard way that there isn't).
