Re: Wk headlights

headlight has an adjuster. its a small hex or torx. on the back of the housing. L-R = Lower raise.

but prolly wont help as HIDs in reflector housing CAUSE LOTS OF GLARE

When you adjust the lights make sure you are about 10 - 15 ft away from a wall so you can see how much you adjust the lights... just the slightest adjustment will make a big difference from a distance. I put in some HID's in my WK and havent had anyone complain yet so im sure you just need a teeny weeny adjustment and you should be golden!

Re: Wk headlights

If you're worried about it, just get projectors. Otherwise, its not a big deal. I have HID's in the stock housing and I could honestly care less what other cars think.

Will projectors actually assist the HID in that the driver can see more of the road AND save other motorists eyes? Or are they just to save other motorists eyes?

Re: Wk headlights

The problem with our stock headlights is there is a lot of wasted light that doesnt get directed towards the road... the projectors harness that extra light and focus it where it needs to be thus giving a brighter road in front of you and keeping that extra glare out of other drivers eyes.
