Thanks so much for your help

Yeh that's why I wasn't sure, my mate didn't want to fry his multimeter. So when these lights are on the sti's they have external balasts? And where and how much are these looms, and are they worth it or can you DIY it, keeping in mind I have an auto lecky as a mate.
Caz = because sorry if I confused you...?

It was a subtle hint that english is the prefered language on here should you wish to avoid mutliple spelling/grammar nazis. Also, never heard of 'caz' normally its 'coz'.
