    Hey everyone,

    I have something that has been bothering me awhile and was wondering if someone can answer this. Sorry if there is a post like this before and if there is just direct me to it please.

    If i get the Gen 2 Halo projector head light can i put HIDs in the high beam and it still be effective? The only reason i haven't got any is that i love having instant high beam HID with the H4s hi/lo in one bulb. There is no blackout period where i have to wait for the highs to warm up. Basically i want to be able to do the same thing with the projector headlamp. Is there any way to achieve this? Because i know the Halo headlamp splits the Hi an low into separate bulbs. I appreciate any input.

    Thanks

    Get a real projector and retrofit. Buy a wiring harness. Don't buy junk because you are cheap and lazy. That's my advice.

    I would do HID lows and halogen highs. Otherwise you'll have to wait for the high beams to warm up, as you noted.
