Looking for reverse bulb HID conversion reviews
 
I'm thinking about getting some HIDs for my reverse lights. I'm looking for some long term reviews from those of you who have them. Have you experienced any issues with warping tails (especially if you have tinted tails)? Any issues with the ballast/bulb lifetime since they don't have time to warm-up before they turn off? Also, any other info you could provide would be great. Thanks!

I am waiting for the same info...I have wanted to do this for a while now but the non p-n-p aspect and the limited amount of time for heat-up has stopped me. I only know of two peeps on here that did the HID's in reverse, so hopefully they will chime in!

I've had reverse HIDs for a while now and havent experience or had any problems with them. I love them.. They work great at night when im backing up into my driveway and are super bright.

A few pictures and write up when I installed them.

I will do this mod when I can get a separate switch hooked up to turn them on when not in reverse. :D
