Allright... this thread has been going on for too long now.

1.99 at halfords could buy you these...



you get all the pulling power (if any) and none of the performance for a fraction of the price!!

Nuff said.

They stock the 6000k colour bulb which is fine for most and I need to confirm whether they have the 5000k kit in stock for Stu (if you're ok with this k colour Stu)?

If this is ok with everyone I will start to collect payments and get them ordered and sent out?!

I know you can get cheaper kits on ebay but thought a company with someone on a phone is better than hong kong rip offs? May work out cheaper but at what cost if it doesn't turn up or work or breaks?!

Just wait for everyone to agree they're happy as don't want to make a decision for people without them giving consent (plus then I'd have to refund people money they'd already sent...which is a pain in the arse)!

Once everyone is happy I'll send a PM to each person about payment and we'll get this bad boy done and dusted!

Spoken to Dean and he can do literally a couple of quid cheaper per kit but can't supply anything less than 6k for the H4-3 bulbs (so not the 5k or less we were after) and can't do the H4-1 bulb which I'd need and possibly Jamesy for his Lude as well if he joins in the buy!

Yeah definitely mate. Price was good but it was only not being able to do h4-1 bulb and 5k kelvin kits that lost it! Hopefully the next one you can sort for us! Wink

HID's are a piece of piss to wire up, could do it in about 15 minutes, wiring it all nicely. Only thing that might need extending is the power cable, but then I don't know where the battery is on an MR2.

That's if they're like my kit though, can't see why not though!

As said should be easy enough to install! In my kit I don't even have a loom to go to batt as it's only the main beam so don't need the extra power....even easier to wire up! Wink
