    Yeah you are. It doesn't need it, but they will try force it on you as it probably costs more!

    MOTs are only once a year.... Put your halogens back in for the test if you're worried about it... That's what I did.

    Sweet did you get slimline or standard ballasts? I should probably mount my ballasts properly...current they are just zip tied from the top, onto the wing.

    Only part I think il have an issue with is the connecting to original system. I have (as said in the first post on here) the two spade connectors (one black, one red) as this was different to my last set I installed

    They are quite hard to photograph lol. Theres a really weird problem too. When i first turn them on the passenger one flicks on then goes off. The drivers stays on. So i have to turn them off again, then back on and the passenger one is then fine. Odd.

    Ah ok il try that. To be honest they were quite hard to get pushed and clicked in. If theyve been on for a while and i turn them off and back on theyre fine.

    Got my H4-3 HID kit in the post this morning! :)
    Do I have to disconnect the battery to fit them?
    Also I've worked out all the connections apart from the wires with the circular ends on them, two are black, the other is red. Do they connect to the car and the battery?

    I didn't disconnect my battery


    The four wires on each hid set push fit into the black electrical part on the bulb connector. Make sure you get the live and the neutral the right way round. I had to do a test to make sure they were right.
    Connecting those metal black circles and the red ones are how the hids link into the original system.
    Don't ask me why theres two black on one side and red and black on the other lol
