You put a shield inside the lamp to help direct the light forward....but i didnt even do that, since i blacked out the inside there isnt any real reflective ability so it just spills the light forward.

its this kind of brush and you wipe all the dust off your car and it looks like you just washed it. I'll take a pic of it today when I use it.

Search the forum buddy, there is plenty of info on how to use relays to turn your turning lights on with your lows.

It was really dirty, so I decided to wash it anyway. But this thing works great when there's dust, not dirt lol. You should get one

Well oddly enough all four of my HID's were flickering at weird times...seemingly at low rpms and when the engine was off....this was last night....


WELLLL i figured it was some old fuses giving trouble so i changed them this morning and by lunch when i went to start the car....CLICK CLICK CLICK.....UGH, that EXPLAINS IT........LMAO the battery didnt have enough life left in it to run the 4 HID ballasts at low RPMs.


Well, look how bright these suckers are with an Optima RedTop 800CCA beast.


Click the image to open in full size.

As you might have imagined i have already aimed them down some more, after aiming down and stepping to the side here is a pic so you can see how they throw light (the fogs)

I could light up a damn football field
