I'm gonna jump on the group buy for HID's but am debating between Bi-xenon or xenon. What's your opinions? Is it bright enough to the point you don't need high beams? Thanks.

Get the hi/lows. They're not much more $ and that way you can aim the lows down so you don't blind people...

If you're going to bet the HIDs I guess get the Bi xenons. It is never a really good idea to put a HID system in a reflector housing not designed for HID lamps but a ton of people do it. As you can see others have stated that they have had to aim they're headlights down to avoid blinding oncoming traffic.

retrofit some projectors in your stock housings. they are more expensive but a way better way to go. brighter than if you just put them in your stock headlights, dont blind oncoming traffic and get the cops attention and better than ebay.

Do you travel on a lot of dark country roads or do any night offroading? If not then I'd just get the regular low beams, hell I never use my high beams and I travel on all kinds of dark roads with no lighting. My low + fog HID's are plenty enough light.

It's really the correct way to do it. Plus, the benefit far outweighs the cost.

When I had my Accord on was on one of the Accord forums if someone mentioned putting an HID system in their reflector housing they were slaughtered and hung out to dry. Everyone on TW seems pretty lax about it.
