    I am trying to decide if I should install some HID bulbs in my factory headlights, not the complete kits but the ones from csjumper2003 that are drop ins and use the factory reflector. OR To buy some used KC Daylighters (100W 200,000 Candle) behind my Satoshi Grill. I am looking for extra light when driving at night on the highways and back roads.

    Oh and they are about the same price.

    :deadhorse: if you are wanting to run hid's in your headlights please do the work and retrofit them with projectors so your not blinding others on the road.

    i know it's all been said before but, imo hids in the factory reflector are a horrible idea.

    i would vote to convert or buy a good set of hid off road lights for the times when you really need the extra light.
