I received mine today, I only placed the order yesterday!

They're fitted and running on my 9n, its only the PRO kit you need for the 9n.

But I did have enough time to put my car back together since I was also changing over some angel eye bulbs, and they're miserable to change!

so just to clear this up.

9n's after 2004 need the ultimate kit?
9n's before 2004 need the pro kit?

mine is a 52 plate, (november 02) so i'l need the pro kit?

alex can you clarify?

Yes thats correct, although the pro kit will work for all models. Polos dont have a bulb warning system so it isnt a requirement for the ultimate kit.

Can you get some pics of them on onto the site - itd be nice to see the result on a 9n :D

Photos posted in the new thread. As Alex has already pointed out we only need the Pro kits because I dont think any Polo's yet have a light warning system.

hey all... not been on here 4 a LONG time, anyway i have a set of HIDs (not the hids4u kit) a KDG kit which is just as good if not better qual :p but anyway i paid a bit more than u r so u cant complain... but i came 2 say I have had mine on for nearly 2yrs now, not had ANY trouble with MOT or police (did get pulled over once, but i just sed they were standard HIDs and he was confused and let me go). I have a mk4 with aftermaket FK lamps, the beam pattern looked IDENTICAL to my old bulbs but just a hell of a lot brighter... so im a bit miffed about change in beam pattern, defo some are worser than others, i.e deflector plate

Best mod I have done so far... i have pics if some of you want corruption....

lol the reason you paid more is because i got these down to the cheapest price in the uk! Normally £249 a set :shock: lol Cant say ive ever heard of KDG anyhow :P hehe. Some pics would be nice - specially on a mk4 with angels its nice to see how everyone looks. Ill make a new thread for it - otherwise this one will be taken over

heres the thread http://www.tigerstyle.co.uk/poloforum/v ... 255#231255

ive put pics up on that thread

not many peeps heard of KDG but there are a quality brand... its all about quality at end of day, i would wannat have crap qual when 20,000V is being sparked in my car... some of these ebay kits have low qual which begs the question... water + 20,000V = boooom

They look good. Beam pattern is very crisp and a big improvement over the standards. Ya its all about quality i totally agree - lots of volts and lots of accidents waiting to happen with poor quality kits :P

quick question, can you still use the levelling controlls to set beam height (i quite often have a pretty loaded boot and dont want to be blinding people)?
