    I installed a pair of Hella 550's on a BAMF Bar behind my satoshi and am really not impressed with their actual light patern. Would HID fix this? I'ts been Aimed properly and wired super clean..... Help

    well..... My original intention was to convert them anyway and now I'm not so sure I wanna waste the money. 55W is 55W in my book and unless the HID's actually have higher output from the same watt IDK? 43k-5k color temp would make that big of a diffrence in actual power output.

    oh a 35 watt HID is wayyyy better than a 55watt halogen, apples to oranges, no comparison
