    does it have seperate mains and high beams?

    Standard facelift headlamps use H7 for main and high, as did the old pre-facelift bosch units i had fitted originally.

    Was just about to say the same as above. Don't think you have H4's in the lights you have.

    I know my standard pre facelift lamps were H4 but my facelift items are H7 for the Hi and low beams

    oranoco i presume you pre-facelift lamps were without fogs?

    Seems that the ones with fogs built in had H7's and a H1 for the fog and ones without had H4's

    TBH vista really isnt that bad. Its a bit different and it needs a decent amount of RAM to run nicely but then XP was exactly the same when it was released.

    The problem however is that a lot of companies are selling it on machines that basically cant run it properly. Mainly because Microsoft has discontinued XP and therefore only Vista is available for new machines, regardless of their capabilites.

    Any vista machine needs 2gb of ram to run nicely, and i'd also recommend a dual core CPU as a minimum.

    At the end of the day, if you try to run XP on a P3 with 128mb ram (which were still being sold when it was released) it'll also run like a sack of crap!

    Seems in this case its actually a hardware failure anyway, so not vistas fault at all!

    np make sure you have the service packs installed for vista as well they take an age to install but they do actually make some changes.

    Yep you can get H1 HID bulbs for your kit, you can get them fron ebay i think they are around 40 for a pair of bulbs. Just make sure they have the right connectors on for your kit, i think they are quite generic.
