Would be interested to see what people think of them after a bit of use in the dark if you could feedback.

I remember the Cat lights being almost completley crap.

I still haven't fitted mine yet. I do have one of the Halfords Extra Bright Bulbs in and it makes a world of difference compared to the standard but you still have the same pattern so don't lean round bends in the dark unless you have good night vision! Ooooh that's a nice Owl up in that tree rofl

Having fitted two different kits to 2 Thundercat's, I wouldn't do it again.

Sure there is a bit more light but not to the extent you would expect for the money and effort. As has been stated, the problem is with the reflector and no amount of extra light is going to cure the problem.
The recent changes to the MOT look like HiD's won't pass like they used to.

This is just my experience with them, others are happy with the results. In trying to work that out, I have concocted a theory - the older we get the more light we need and I believe the type of light given by the HiD doesn't project well, but is good when shone on a reflective surface.
The recent report of the HiD failing the MOT seems to support my theory. My older peepers possibly been 'sensing' what the new VOSA equipment is reading - dunno.

I'd go with a high brilliance bulb instead, the one I used in the past worked pretty well.

As per Rosco's problem at the Mot, fitting is up to you

HID is only legal if the headlight unit is correctly 'E' marked. Halogen headlight units and Xenon HID units have different 'E' marks. The only way for an HID kit to be road legal is if the whole headlight unit is replaced with one specifically designed for HID or the existing headlight unit is reassessed for compliance and assigned a new 'E' mark. As you can imagine, this is vastly inconvenient and expensive. In short, unless you take steps to do all of this then your vehicle will not be road legal.

In the Department's view it is not legal to sell or use after market HID lighting kits, for converting conventional Halogen headlamps to HID Xenon. If a customer wants to convert his vehicle to Xenon HID he must purchase completely new Xenon HID headlamps. The reason for this is that the existing lens and reflector are designed around a Halogen filament bulb, working to very precise tolerances. If one places a HID "burner" (bulb) in the headlamp, the beam pattern will not be correct, there will be glare in some places and not enough light in other places within the beam pattern. - Department for Transport (2006)

adding an HID kit may void your insurance and any warranty you have on the vehicle. You could also pose a safety risk to the emergency services should you be involved in a road traffic accident (factory fitted systems have safety measures built in to automatically shut the system down in the event of a collision).

Somewere in the small print I seem to remember reading It also requires self leveling suspension/headlamps and headlight washer jets?
