Headlights
« on: April 17, 2013, 10:12:29 AM »
OK i have got myself a set of Projector Headlamps for my 2000 Seat Alhmabra and was thinking of getting a set of HID's for them. Question is will my Aly have the Canbus system so would i need to get a set with Error Correction?

Any help and guidance would be appreciated.  ;D

How have you got projectors? The canbus system won't like the HID kit but it should still work, that said its illegal and will fail the MoT - not to mention unless the projector housing was designed for HID it'll dazzle other road users. Plus you'll need levelling and washers...

My mate is breaking a 2008 Alhambra which has them, can get the bumper and all needed extras as well. It did have HIDs originally so they were designed for the.

Awesome, should be a fun retrofit :)

The rear levelling sensor has a rivited plate so you'll need to drill that out, also the washer bottle itself is MUCH bigger (9L vs 3.5!) As for the xenon's themselves, what's missing from the assembly??
