Lightbulb Headlight upgrade complete w/ pics

Finally got the fine tuning done and the light output is amazing. Plus the horizontal beam allows me to see exactly where the light is aimed and it does not create that glare to oncoming traffic. If anyone is interested in doing the same if they have projectors and HIDs I can help walk you through it.

Neat set up. Not a big fan of the headlights, but the light output is amazing.

Here is original link to upgrade: Homemade headlight projectors

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I bought a pair of euro-styly lights off ebay 2-3 years ago. In order for the light output to be clear with a well defined cutoff, I think the lens should be clear type and not the OE fresnel type glass....everything else is simple. I know members may not agree with using subpar lighting material, but I purchased my HID lights and ballast (55w) from DDMTuning and their product ships directly to you from China!! I am satisfied with my purchase and as I have stated and as shown on the pictures, the light output is simply amazing. Even side by side with a Lexus 460L or an Infiniti TSX, my lights have a greater and more defined output. Granted I am using a 55w ballast. I think the key is being able to adjust the light for optimal usage. Just my 2 cents though. Good luck and PM me if you need help.
