  1. Lights (8G)
    Hi first time posting here I have just brought a 2nd hand 2006 civic ex 1.8 petrol. It has the factory fitted hids and I think the ballast is failing as they are now flickering even when the car is static. Can I just unplug the ballast and everything from the ballast to and including the bulbs...

    Good evening! I've recently acquired a 2006 Honda Civic FK3, 2.2 Diesel. Yesterday the drivers side headlight bulb died. So I've been searching the internet for what bulbs it requires. H7 was the connector type I managed to narrow it down to, so I brought some H7 LED bulbs off of Amazon...

    My mk8 has HID for dipped beam but halogen for high beam as they seem very amber compared to dipped. Why would this be and can you just put HID in high beam seeing as autoleveller etc is already installed? Thanks in advance.

    Hi guys, I was hoping someone could help me out. I can't tell if the oxidation on my headlights are on the inside or outside of the headlights. I've tried using Meguiars headlight restorer but it hasn't done anything. If anyone could give me advice on what product is best it would be greatly...

    Hi guys :frown2: civic 2008 2.2L Diesel here. I had my right headlight fuse blow up. I replaced it, and it blow up again after a month or so. Since them it blows up as soon as I put a new one and turn on the lights. It's MOT time and the mechanic removed the bumper to check the ballast, and...

To do this they seem to have taken the connectors to the HID ballasts off, re pinned it into the headlight plugs and stowed the earths. I'd like...

  11. Lights (8G)
    After owing the civic for just over a year, I've decided to upgrade the bulbs and fit a HID kit after an accident with a motorcycle. I Was planning to get JP's 6000K HID but my best friend had a set at home, the light output is really good without dazzling any oncoming motorists. Number...

    Hi, I have recently picked up a 2.2cdti sport and love it. Why did I not know about these cars before? Any way I have one niggle which is the OEM fitted HID low beams.
