No HID­den dan­gers

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Hav­ing read the Cal­i­bra Mods & Cons ar­ti­cle in CCW, 8 March, I al­ways be­lieved that af­ter­mar­ket HID kits were il­le­gal due to the heat they pro­duce and con­se­quently a MoT fail­ure if fit­ted. Gra­hame King, Le­ices­ter HID bulbs are po­ten­tially unsafe – and il­le­gal – if used as di­rect re­place­ments for OE parts, as the hous­ing isn’t de­signed to take them. But with the Cal­i­bra you buy a com­plete hous­ing that’s de­signed from the out­set as an HID unit. We cer­tainly wouldn’t ad­vo­cate fit­ting HID re­place­ment bulbs in these ar­ti­cles – Richard Dredge.
