Bought this kit off my friend, had to fix a fried wire but did that and it works! The people screwed up the wiring though, they put the plugs in the wrongs spots in the factory harness connector. It is suppose to have a halogen bright bulb, but its useless to me so I left it unconnected.

One thing I noticed is that reflective things stand out a lot more, but I may need to tilt my headlamps up just a tad. My vision is deffinately good with these lights though

The kit is suppose to be 10000k, but it honestly doesnt appear that blue to me, the one with the most glare is the truest to the actual color, what do you guys think? Was also wondering, when I switch bulbs, am I able to change the heat temp by changing just the bulbs or does that require a ballast change as well? Just curiouse because Im not 100% sure

Anyway here are pics!

Cool man...need to get some side/angle shots so we can see the lights without glare!

I tried, was still glaring, the pic with the least amount was above my head, so it was about 7 to 7 and a half feet above the ground lol

If that's producing that much glare at that height....well, that's not that surprising if you've stuffed an HID bulb into a halogen housing.

Particularly if it's a DOT housing, which is designed to throw light up into the air.

And yes, the colour temperature is dependent upon the bulb and may be changed without changing the electronics. However, it's not unusual for the cheaper bulbs to use a tint on the bulb to change its colour, which reduces its output and defeats the whole point of HID, which is more light.

Wow..................................


If you pass me, i'm going to run you off the road.

I hope thats just your camera failing.

:p

And that looks normal for a non-focused 10k.

haha its actually not that bad, its just the camera cant focus in all the light. I'd say the light when driving is between low and high setting, a little bit on the high side.

Galcobar - no tint on the bulbs :)
