    I have decided to revert back to OEM lighting and remove my HID`s. Trouble is, there are two wires to connect to the bulb and only one terminal on the H1 bulb. I`m assuming red goes to the bulb and black needs to be connected to earth but for the life of me I can`t remember or find where the earth terminal is. Does anybody have any idea.

    I was reverting back in anticipation of changing the car for one thing but mainly someone here in another thread had mentioned that Aviva won`t pay out if non OEM HIDs are fitted. Also I`ve heard here and elsewhere that the police can be a bit awkward depending on their mood. So far I`ve had no trouble with the MOT but if in future I need to take it somewhere else then there could be a problem.

    Just one more thing now to put back to stock.

    Are you still going to use upgraded bulbs?

    Yep Dave prob me.

    I was pulled in my Audi I hada 6k conversion it and had to remove it.

    I also checked with Aviva at my recent renewal re them covering my car with these fitted and they were quite clear No..

    Shame as they are a great cheap improvement on stock and set correctly shouldn't cause other road users any problems but I wouldn't run the risk. I am now with AXA who seem quite ok however they also say they are ilegal for road us and so will not cover.

    After my disastrous MOT result last year I will not be putting aftermarket headlight bulbs on my car.
