Was thinking about replacing my stock bulb with the below one; however, wanted to get some feed back on any electrical issues I may encounter when swamping this out. All advice and suggestions are appreciated.


Xenon 5000K Super White Halogen HID Light Bulb H4

I've just ordered one about a week ago, apparently it just plugs into the OEM bulb socket, just to figure out where to put the ballast for it and whether any cables that come with it might need lengthened, would also like a headlamp on/off switch, may do that by splitting the neg through a toggle switch though.

That Xenon bulb is just an aftermarket OEM bulb replacement not a pure HID system. I have used both and currently have a 55w slim ballast 6000K HID system that I love. This bulb in question will just swop out and run just fine. It will be brighter for sure but nothing like a pure HID setup.

Ok, so you ordered a real HID with ballast. As long as its a slim ballast, you should be able to tuck it all behind the left scoop. Thats what I did with all mine and its clean you'd never know.

yea, the ballast is only 17mm thick, but there's already an alarm fitted behind the left scoop, im sure I'll find somewhere to tuck it away!
