Re: Upgrading headlamp light pattern

I run HID and it's honestly the best thing ever. I can see everything and I can see signs, people, bikers coming from a distance. I have mine shooting at about the recommended level and you will blind people. I just turn them off at a stoplight if I notice the beam hits someone's mirror. Every now and then someone gives me the finger but 90% of the time it's coming from a slammed car. Yet again, I constantly get blinded but lifted trucks with HIDs so it all goes around.

I was thinking hid but our head lamps are not to suitable for hid. Very reflective. Might get silver stars

Re: Upgrading headlamp light pattern

Silverstar Ultras are the best you'll do with minimal fuss without upgrading to HID. I've got them on my wife's OE headlamps on her WK and they were a huge improvement.

Hid are no problem Wiring. Just issue with it being a reflective housing and being a suv higher.

Re: Upgrading headlamp light pattern

They make other housings for them if you decide to upgrade to HIDs. Silverstar Ultras are the best other than that.
