HID lights at night
2 Attachment(s)
hey just got my 8000k hid kit put in and idk i like them but not 100% satisfied..maybe i expected more....but i feel like i may need to adjust then up because the light doesn't seem to be traveling very far at all..look at the pics and if you can tell or have any suggestions let me know! thanks

Its 8k. Light output goes down the higher up you go. IMO you need to go down to either 5k or 6k, and at the most 6500k.

i got it from prob is a shit brand idk...but now i'm thinking maybe i should just try to switch out the bulbs? let me know what you guys really think cause i was lookin forward to this hid kit so bad and now idk...but its a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo with the limited headlamps...what about adjusting them up anyone have any opinions???? like by looking at the pic can u tell if they need to be adjusted? thanks again

Re: HID lights at night
and ya i know that the higher temperature you get in hid bulb the less light output there will be. I know all of this...but i have seen 8000k that look very different from mine...come on guys i see this has like 25 me out!! let me know!!! look at the pics closely please!! thanks so much!

Re: HID lights at night
Well they could look different cause when you go for the better quality the glass will be better and in general the light output and quality, im sure if you picked up some bulbs from tony youd see a difference ive never heard anything bad about his product

Re: HID lights at night
Take the same pic with the regular bulbs in it.....then compare them with the hids. Assuming that u havent adjusted anything yet.

Re: HID lights at night
doesn't seem like they are aimed right ? did you go up against a wall and aim them to the level of your hood and do a side ways allignment too ? just asking ...

if not try using sand paper on the ground connections sometimes if there is not good conductivity the light output will go out because it acts as a resistor and therefore reducing the voltage

Re: HID lights at night
I think its just the color of the light. 8k is very blue/purple. I had 8k Xenondepot xtremes and they werent that purply. I think combined with your fogs....they would be fine. Try some different alignments as well.

Re: HID lights at night
its because you got 8k, thats not very good light output. 6k is the highest i would go.

Re: HID lights at night
hey alright so some of you guys said it looked like the lights weren't aligned correctly...exactly how do i do it? and no i haven't switched the alignment up at all i just recently bought brand new grand cherokee limited headlamps so the alignment is w/e they were set to...and if i'm trying set them up for the right height how far away should i be from the object? thanks again guys you all are the best!!!
