    Iv'e had my HID's in my car for about 18 months and while they are better they are still a bit poor compared to other cars!!

    The kit I have is a cheapish one off ebay do you think this could be part of the problem?

    Also Iv'e noticed people recommend using the 35w kit is there a reason for this or could I get a 55w kit and all be fine ?

    What do you mean by "poor"? what kelvin rating are your HID bulbs? the majority of kits sold are 35w and I can tell you they should be plentifully bright.

    I'd agree, I don;t know anyone who has 55w's fitted. I've heard they're more prone to errors but not sure how true that is.
