Put them in the other day. What a difference in light output.

The projector headlights are perfect for HIDs!

They look cool, but HIDs have always struck me as something that should be illegal. They might help you see a few more feet, but your extra vision won't help you when you blind oncoming traffic.

If installed and aimed properly, they should not effect where the beam is directed. The light does not travel higher than regular bulbs, so other traffic should not be blinded.

Perhaps not higher, but many times the brightness.

dazz is completely correct.


its the drop in HID kits that people put in halogen housings that should be illegal. they are not built to disperse the extra light properly and end up as one big, uneven glare-tastraphy

Absolutely right...

HID kits in halogen housings, while brighter, are not evenly dispersed. Only a true HID projector or D2R housing (for example first gen G35) can handle HID lighting properly. Anything else pales in comparison.
