    hidsdirect, speak to Paul 01617939236
    http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/

    top bloke, bought two sets form him, he did me a deal and shipped for free.

    there is a write up on here that I did, I didn't need the resistor pack as I got no fault codes or issues. (99.5 B5 1.8tqs)

    dims and mains, fogs are 100W H7's (and are currently sitting at my feet unfitted!)
    I have some blue side light bulbs which shine quite white and are a good match

    no, I did just to see what they are like.
    They take a little while to warm up and are a nicer white shade than the stock H7 bulbs but I didn't need them either.

    they are probably not right for fogs.
    In theory fogs are lower and not as powerful so as not to illuminate the fog. I never use my 100w ones in actual fog as it doesn't really help. I just slow down....usually

    I used aceparts on ebay, they came with a 2 year warranty, which is advisable as ballasts aren't particluarly reliable, although ahd no problems with them
