Can I turn my high beams into another set of low beams?
 
I'd like to turn my high beams into another set of low beams because I never use my high beams and I want additional light while driving. What would it take to pull this off? Thanks.

You can TRY making quad projectors like robpp did, then you would have four low beams and four high beams.

while its not illegal here in CO the amount of light it gives off is a problem . recently added switches so i could turn off the iner 2.

you would have to modify the high beam to cover the head of the bulb like the low beam does......and you would have to make another low beam bulb work.

and then check your local laws. while it wasnt illegal here many states say no more than 4 forward lights at a time. hence no high beams with fogs.

Sounds like I can do it if I don't have the fogs turned on as well. Thanks for the input guys.

EDIT: Assuming this source is accurate, I should be able to make it happen :thumbsup:

Doesn't the reflector inside the light have alot to do with it? I think you'd have to figure out a way to change the beam pattern.

Hmmm how would you go about doing this??? The only way I can think of is robs way...can you do it with the factory equipment??

it would be a ton of work. as others have stated, you would have to put in a new reflector to cover the bulb and create a low beam pattern. why not just get the 08+ OEM HIDs?

its a PUT UP or SHUT UP kind of thing to do it correctly. I dont think ghetto will pass with the POPO


also, not sure what happened to all the QUAD retorfit projects but I think mine is the only one I saw completed. I know JDub did a single Projector. there arent that many becuase its a true CLUSTER.
