Re: New Hid kit 6k 55w

What kit did you use? Did you do a retro or just a PnP kit?

Well I had a kit from zentec then changed the ballast to 55w. I just bought a pair on ebay. Everything is plug and play. Plus you need a flicker kit for the 55w.

Sounds like you have a problem. I drive pass my jeep every night in a civic and I dont have any problem. I havent been flashed or anything. So maybe the people in my area dont complain. So dont hate me, hate the person and cars that you have problems with buddy.

Re: New Hid kit 6k 55w

HID bulbs do not need to be anywhere near "reflector housings" or "halogen projectors"... I can't wait until they start implementing headlight checks on all vehicles for registration in all states. But they won't...

It doesn't matter what you think when you pass "your" vehicle because "you" will be biased. What matters is when you have 3 oncoming vehicles and one of them has HID's just thrown in their "Non-HID" headlight housings... Trust me... You will know who it is when you are squinting your eyes trying to see where you are going.
