Installing a HID Kit on my Lotus Exige – didn’t go to plan!

Installing a HID Kit on my Lotus Exige – didn’t go to plan!

Installing a HID kit is easy, they said. It’ll be fun, they said!!

After a few bumps along the DIY path, and a new found appreciation for how difficult it is to make a DIY vlog, I actually managed to do a half descent job of getting some HID’s in to replace the woeful Lotus factory headlight bulbs.

Mechanical incompetence aside, the job is relatively straight forward. Although this install takes place on my 2014 Lotus Exige, the principle can be applied to any car really.

The kit was purchased from Delonix Auto – thanks to Jenny for sorting out the mixup. It is a 9005 35W 6000k kit, and comes with a 12 month warranty.
