    Hello, just after some advice, I am looking to upgrade my h7 halogen headlights using an aftermarket morimoto HID kit. I have a 9-3 MY2010 (facelift model with “eyebrows” on the headlights). Has anyone done this without using a tech 2 to change to “xenon mode”. I am wondering if there is a...

    I have an issue with no power going to the lead for the zenon on the passenger side. Drivers side lights are fine I have swapped the bulbs, ballasts, and ignighters with the drivers side and all components are good. All Fuses are good. This leads me to believe it is the relay R-14 on the engine...

    Hi, I have seen alot of these threads around but yet no-where can i find someone that has actually fitted aftermarket HID's to a Saab 93 in the UK. I have a 2007 Vector Sport Anniversary 150 1.9 TID, and pretty much the only thing it doesnt have equipped are OEM HID's. I have found some...

    Hi All. I'm looking to buy a set of after market HID's. I know that I want 55w/6000k. The question is, can anyone suggest a good kit? I have been told by various people that VVME do a good kit. Do I need to be looking for any type of ballast. e.g. Digital, Canbus, slim? Any thoughts welcome.

    Hey guys, I bought a H7 HID kit the other day for my 93, I decided to have a trial fit for the time being until I can tidy up the wires and ballast properly, here are the results though! Yes I know it makes my normal sidelight bulbs terrible! Has anyone else done this to theirs? I don't get any...

    Howdy, ya'll! I've made a bunch of "How To" videos for my 2006 9-3 and posted them on YouTube in the hope that they could help others who are having similar problems or issues with their cars. I thought I'd share them here, if that's OK with the moderators. These aren't professional-type videos...

    Waiting on an HID kit from DDM Tuning and tried having my Daytime Running Lights turned off at the dealer today. Was told that it cannot be done on the 2011 9-3. I believe they are on a sensor and kick on and off depending on the daylight, however I was surprised to hear that there is no...

    Hi, thought this may be of interest to some other owners that have HID's and are looking for replacement bulbs ?

    I installed HIDs for my low/high beams. Everything is working great in that area. To save on the life span of the HIDs I installed some LED DRLs, which I hooked up to replace the stock parking lights. That is working out great, however when I switch the car to park the HIDs flicker. I basically...
