    Not self levelling if you have a hand adjustment adjacent to the headlight switch.

    Hi StreetTriple,
    Just a quick question - is the capacitor in the kit together with the ballast to stop any error messages ?
    Also I can't find either of the names of places to get them from on eBay ? Any chance you could check - ta.

    Cockleshell....just fitted some from HIDS4U, not as cheap as the ebay ones, simple to fit, basically plug and play, resistors and starters built into the ballasts

    I checked my paypal details ad found this, I hope it helps

    The ballasts come along with separate error cancellors (capacitors) which just plug in-line. They take a wee bit more room to fit them but just plug in between the ballast and actual bulb!
    I hope the details above assist you.
