Re: On H11 Headlights
Sorry to hear you are having trouble. My swap went trouble free back in december.
I bought the silver star ZXE bulbs and I am pleased with them but not sure where to look for the lumen information.
The added light output does make a difference.
I think that is why the few people that have put in Xenon capsule and amazed by the light output.
I have been tempted to raise my headlights to gain some range but for now I am just letting them be.
My previous car had Valeo bixenons and I and not thrilled with the light out put. The Grand cherokee has the same.
I am doing my homework on how to open these VALEO headlight assemblies so I can add my own xenon projectors without fresnel lenses.
VALEO seems to use some ridiculous permaseal on all its headlight and owners of other brands and baking them and prying them open so it should be possible.
They can't be that hard to open if the Oracle is selling kits for LX platform cars so there must me a way to open them
Some say 275F for 20 minutes while some say 325F for only 7 minutes I just need to see ifI can get it open and then I will order the retro fit kit for another set of used OEM headlights.
