    Any Universal H7 to HID bulb conversion kit should be OK. I'm more than happy with the 9.95 HID kit I purchased off eBay, 7 years later and its still doing what it does and what it does is light up the road ahead. It also conforms to the latest MOT regulations. I never converted the main beam because of the lag between switching a HID lamp on and the lamp coming on. If you want a quick flick of full beam it doesn't happen with HID's and there can be as much as a 10 second or so lag before the lamp fully illuminates.

    It does give a bright 'flash'. I agree that it immediately drops in intensity and takes around 10 seconds to reach full brilliance once again.

    Added a pair of 125W CREE U5 LED DRL's, another cheap as chips eBay find at 15.00 including the switch. Also still going strong after 1+ years and 10,000 miles.

    Apart from the HID dipped beam and 125W CREE U5 LED DRL's it's now all back to original factory.


    Hi Art, just rejoined with my new Biffer and have been all over this thread re the H7 & sidelight LED upgrade - all looks good.

    I'm trying to work out how you've mounted your spot lights/DRL's  :087:

    Any chance of a heads up or closer piccy? I think you may be on the engine mounts?

    Cheers fella  :028:

    I made up a pair of 50 mm x 22 mm bobbins using some plumbing fittings I had laying around, drilled a 6 mm hole in the engine hanger and secured the bobbins using a M6 75 mm bolt and nyloc nut.
