Arrived yesterday and fitted within 2 hours , cant fault em at all , got the kit off a guy in canada from e bay ordered monday morning and they arrived yesterday,

Bit of a problem finding somewhere to fit the ballasts but as they are waterproof (says in the literature they will work submerged under the wet stuff) ive bolted them to the impact bar below the headlight units

went for 6000K and what a difference , they are super bright a must recomend mod for all out there

Yep I fitted a set to my 75 last weekend. Very impressive and alot better than wasting money on the halogen lights that are trying to look like HID.

What about satnav in a ZS? As far as I'm aware no models had it as an option - but I might be wrong.

I have a PDA with mount and bluetooth GPS reciever for my satnav

Carl,

Glad you got your kit installed, the difference is amazing - especially with the 6000K colour. Sorry I couldn't get you any pics, I've been a bit busy packing to move house. Did you have to remove the bulb blocking shield in the dipped lamps?

no i just cut the corner off the covers to get all the wires in , the bulbs i got with my kit have fixed wires on them so its all insulated and there ws no problem with the locking wire , thanks for the advice though i had a good old look at it before i started to make sure , ive not been far with them yet but they look good in the dark everything is very clear with them

There was an option for the becker traffic Pro - part number YIB 000240 in the ZS at £1531.57 but there now selling the unts on the on site shop for £370 each - so i was gonna retro fit it but i cant find out which unit it is ? does anyone know if its the Becker Traffic Pro 7820 ???

just out of interest , anyone who has HID fitted , do they whistle when you first turn them on for a few seconds?

The startup whine is normal, the bulb needs over 22kv to form the arc but once it's warm it only needs a fraction of that to sustain it - the ballast does a lot less work once the bulb warms up.

as long as they are properly alligned as far as im aware - (told by my local MOT man ) as long as they are aimed right your ok - just make sure they are well insulated cos i dont fancy working on a car thats live at 25,000 volts lol

there just like normal bulbs really just very white and very bright

i paid £134.50 inc p&p ,yes side lights work fine as the ZS doesnt use the dipped bulb for sidelights only the actual side light bulb

With regards to being E marked - the ballasts are , but as the only way to see this is to remove the front bumper no ones ever going to see them , and any aftermarket kit dosent require washers or self levelers

Id like to retro fit washers to it but im having difficulty finding the relevent parts in a scrappers
