Hi All,

As someone pointed out to me at the Whitby run the ST-1's (which I own one of) don't come with HID lights and to use the direct quote ' look really pants' especially when there are 50 odd other ST's on the road all with there lights ons.

Obviously fitting HID's and the relevant jet washers is going to cost a fortune so I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on some acceptable replacements that will get a little closer to that 'annoying traffic going in the direction' brightness that so many HID owners enjoy!

I've heard vagaties of replacement bulb kits that will do the trick but some specifics would be nice.

Thanks in advance!

Rob

awesome bud, easy as that!

I've just had a look on eBay, should I look for some specifically for an ST of will any do? Alot seem to specify a rating between 6k - 12k. Does the ST have any limit, or is there any benfit in getting one rating over another?

But you will still need the washer jets ... It's illegal to not have them with Hid xenons Apparently... Could fail it's mot
is it worth it ??
Really? Why make conversion kits if you still have to fit sprayers? It all seems a little daft to me, do the washer jets actually have any effect?

Conversion kits seems plug and play so could remove them when it comes round to MOT time. Or am I missng the point of illegality should Mr Plod want to give me a hard time?

As I said headlamp washer jets are NOT an mot testable item.
