    I found the darker the road the better they were. I've said all along they're not as good as HIDs but I found them far, far better than halogens. For someone going straight from halogens to the LEDs there's a massive difference.

    Hi guys I’m new here but I was after a bit oh help. I have a 16 facelift CDTI 170bhp with halogen hir2 projector lights. I tried fitting HIDs to my car. https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/hi...rsion-kit.html But I found that one of the lights was dim all the time and I tried a couple of solutions that didn’t work. Has anyone else found this problem or a solution?

    They are refunding it at no cost. I take it that it’s not a good kit?

    It sounds like you have a dodgy bulb or ballast. Have you tried swapping the bulbs over to see if the dull light transfers over to the other side? That should tell you if you need a replacement bulb or ballast from your supplier.

    I’ve done all that I swapped the ballast round and the fault did not move so I got a replacement bulbs sent out. This still didn’t fix it so they sent me a relay and resistor pack to fit in line. After fitting and trying many different combinations I found th relays would click but neither of the bulbs would light up so I’m returning it all for a refund.

    How odd. Strange it's only one side of the car is affected.
