    HID on CDTI 1.9

    Im thinking of fitting hids to my astra but there is very little room for ballasts etc has any 1 fitted them to theirs. Where did u mount ballasts. Is this a big job ie lights and bumper off. I fitted hids to my last car 1.2 corsa lol so easy job cos theres stacks of room cos engine tiny.

    there are some kits with very small ballasts which is probably your best bet
    remember you need to get ones that are canbus compatible
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    Grille off, bumper off, lights out.
    Mounted my ballasts underneath the headlights and they're the big ballasts so all good

    I have standard size ballasts, like Kg I mounted them in a similar place, the fit fine just under the headlights where the wheel arch starts
