    Will fitting 35 W HID H7 lights cause my warning lights to light up ?
    I have read somewhere that the normal Halagens on my car are working at 50 W, so will fault report on only 35 W. I know there are 55 W HID kits - so maybe it will be better to fit one of these, although I also read that because these are brighter they should only be fitted to projector headlights. Any advise would be welcome, thanks.

    It's nothing to do with what wattage the bulbs are running at. It's the ballasts that compensate for the resistance, so make sure the kit you are looking is good quality

    As Neal said....
    If you want a good quality kit try HIDS4U, cancellers and starters all built into the ballasts
