Before I order XenonDepot Volt HID kit
 
I have a 2007 Commander Limited and I wanted to put 6000k HID low beams in it. I have read that the projection is often messed up due to the housing and bulb not being a good match for each other. Does the Commander typically work fine with the conversion? I don't want to be blinding people and putting them in danger simply because I found some cool lights...

Thanks!

Let me first say that the lows/fogs HID's mod is one of the top 5 I have done...and it should have been my first. I do get flashed about 1/20 cars but I live in a hilly area so I am always coming at people in different angles that head-on on flat ground. There is scatter, but these things are so bright that the main issue is that they are BRIGHT. I have had many friends drive in fron of me in different scenarios and they say it is just bright. You just need to make sure you have a good cut off and it is low enough but provides enough illumination. This thread is all u really need to read about the kit and install, but this is for a wk and the housings are similar in nature but not the same. So hopefully you can get an exact answer...but a must-do mod IMO.

Many say this so it is something to keep in mind...but I have had multiple incidents with passing police and being behind them with NO issue, and 90% of the people that flash me are 65+ (SB is oldish town outside the school areas)

I had them on my jeep for one day and i felt bad for others. I took them out and bought projectors. Now there is a defined cut off and the light stays on the road. Im not to familiar with the commander, but if they make projectors get them...... You will get much more usable light from a projector. Hids in halogen will be lighting up the trees over the road instead of just the road. Eliminate scatter by having a projector lens. I have had hids in both housings, there is no comparison.

Can someone provide a link to these projectors? I really appreciate all the help yall are giving. It sounds like I'll just have to order 'em up and try them to have my exact and final answer.

I've had HIDs in halogen housings and thought it was cool but after I retrofitted projectors, I'll never own an auto without HID projectors again. That's my word.

I recommend the Volt kit...one because Xenondepot is a trusted vendor here and hundreds of other sites and two i have ONLY used Xenondepot products in my vehicles. Plus you can get $25 off or free relay harnesses if you buy the Xenondepot kit here.

^^ no doubt it is better, hence they are on all cars $70k plus...I just don't want to spend the $400-1000 to get custom ones done. I was in love with Robp's quad bad boys he did...those were amazing!


And volt kit for sure...check my feedback/install thread...going STRONG for 2 years now

The CariD ones come with the relay, but the XenonDepot ones don't. What relay should I get to go with the XenonDepot ones? That'll cost more, which I don't want to happen, but that's life, right? haha
