Ad linked above.....the HID's for the headlight bucket, and halogen for the projo. And no, those and many like it are JUNK for hid's. The beam pattern is sooooo off. Look around, tons of folks over at RPS has those type of projo ebay headlight housings and they project a shitty ass beam.

The real way to do it, it retro fitting a projo from some car, or doing what the OP did or what Casper linked.

lens cut off is different. I would attest to that in court after having tried several cheap kits like the one you linked.

if you want a true HID set up plan on spending minimum $250 wether you buy a light housing with true HID pods in it or retrofitting HID pods into your existing headlight housings or putting an HID (or LED, apparently they need a similar cut off) lens into a cheap halogen projector pod

nothing wrong with that except cheap kits are just that.... cheap. what makes what you linked and what the op linked different is what the op linked actually requires a little work, research, and money to complete the project (gotta buy a clear housing and decent ballasts) and the pods are equipped with HID lenses.


fun fact ...... anybody know why BMW came out with those faggy angel eye rings?















for daytime running lights. HID ballasts don't like factory 3/4 daytime running light controls.

you can attest all you want i had friend with a ford bronco with hids in his stock housing just pass inspection through dmv with no problem and as long it says dot approved and they are properly aligned they don't care...I have friends with high end halogen bulbs that you can't tell if they where halogens or hids they are that bright and dmv says nothing to them either and now it might be different there where you live but here we do what we want and if we get a ticket than take then out and then just replaced them with really bright halogens either way the cops leave us alone...

I love all the assholes that like to put HID bulbs into a housing that does not have an HID projector. I an so f*cking glad you like to run down the highway blinding every body you come across. If i was a cop every one of you mother f*ckers would be tickteted and re-ticketed until the problem was fixed.

As it is it wont be long until I start taking a base ball bat to those lights. Assholes like you are part of the reason I no longer want to be a truck driver.

your housing may be DOT approved but that does not mean it is DOT approved for an HID bulb. if your friends are running halogen projectors that you can't tell its not HID then chances are it is a lens with an HID cut off because halogens are fine in an HID pod but HIDs are not fine in any old crappy halogen pod (again it is the cut off that matter, not the color of the lens)

pull you head out of your ass and learn something about HID and projectors in general instead of defending a cheap ass kit because you are too lazy to do it right.

^^Ditto. And I'm one of those guys running HID's in a halogen reflector that's been looking to solve some of the glare issues.


For what it's worth, 01+ lamps that have the 'dome' over the bulb don't have as much glare when compared to lamps that don't have that 'dome' over the bulb.

You love assholes lol and plus i can't afford to pay that much for projector housings.... If you where a cop you would not be a cop for very long before you got fired or locked up ....
