well i have installed hid kits on my headlights and fogs...8000k on the headlights and 3000k on the fogs...here are the results:
Actually with the integrated shields in the existing reflectors the beam pattern is pretty good. A camera really never gives a good impression, especially a video camera on auto.numbersix said:You installed these in the stock housings designed for halogen bulbs?
im right outside of philly, in bensalem...like 30 mins from king of prussia mall (if you know where that is)Jssaab said:Nice looks great. You'll have to post a source... So where in Philly are you, there are a few of us out west toward Lancaset and West Chester
:nono;Wow... that's a lot of road glare. I hope you don't actually run your fogs when it's raining...
I still drive with my fog lights on... I like being able to have a wide angle of vision over distance driving where I do, even if the wide angle doesn't go very far. Having your wide angle fog-lights on is a great way to spot animals on the side of the road wanting to cross. When the slightest bit of light hits their eyes, they glow red, and it's an early warning that they may bolt across the road. I guess it depends on where you drive and what you use your foglights for!stipud said:Wow... that's a lot of road glare. I hope you don't actually run your fogs when it's raining... If you are one of those people who thinks that fog lights are super cool to drive with all the time, give this a read:
I used to run fog lights all the time as well, but after reading that article I switched them off. Since then I have noticed that I have way less trouble seeing things and concentrating at night, which was odd, because I thought I could "see" so much more with the fogs on.
I too have been considering HIDs in my car, but I want added visibility without stunning oncoming traffic. I also want to replace my bulbs less often, which HIDs are great for. Unfortunately there is a huge list of disadvantages for HID conversions:
I have seen many pictures taken head-on with people's cars with HIDs installed. I have yet to see a picture of the resulting beam dispersion patterns. Could one of you do that for me? I want to see how bad the glare is above the cutoff line compared to OEM halogens. This is primarily what I am worried about:
