your kit sounds pretty good,wow, i installed a set of the small digital h.i.d. kits we sell for the european bikes and i didn't have to remove anything but the hood. it only took about 30 minutes but i wasn't rushing it.
That is certainly a personal opinion if I ever saw them.HID headlights use xenon gas as opposed to the standard halogen gas used in most headlights. Xenon gas burns hotter and creates a different light arc in it's filament making for those very bright bluish color headlights you see on most higher end cars. You don't need them.
I agree. I get one of those behind me and I'll slow down and hope they pass. They don't pass? I slow down some more. Those lights hurt my eyes AND I have tinted windows! Really sucks when they are coming towards me. I try to look to the right as much as possible and still be safely watching where I'm going. But what do I know? Everyone seems to love them so much more and seem to think they are safer.Just my .02; I'm sure the HIDs are better for the driver of the car they're on, but I'm pretty tired of being blinded by these "high end" cars with HIDs. Either they're not aimed correctly or they are and way too bright to be out with other cars. Should be OK for the Dakar Rally, etc. but just plain annoying in normal traffic, IMHO.
This was the first time we attemted to take the car apart, and I have no idea why but we ended up taking the side skirts off too lol. We just have to gain access to take the headlights out. Next time we'll try a different way. These ballasts for this kit are pretty small we mounted then right next to the headlight. Clean install. I remember back in the day when the first aftermarket HID kits came out, they were a nightmare! You had to splice wires and it never came out really nice. This is as close to OEM as you are going to get.wow, i installed a set of the small digital h.i.d. kits we sell for the european bikes and i didn't have to remove anything but the hood. it only took about 30 minutes but i wasn't rushing it.
