Default HID Lights

Does anyone see a problem with using this kit? Are there better options?

Thanks in advance

Dude, that's going to be HELL most likely to get to fit. Unless it's plug and play, which I doubt, you'll be spending a lot of time cutting and gluing. If you want the HID kit, go with DDM Tuning, if you want Halos, search the forum, but that's gonna involve some baking, which you're going to have to do anyway.

DDM = No more than $60
Halo = DIY, maybe $40 and a lot of patience
This kit you speak off = $200 of a pain in the ***.

Trust me, and everyone else.

I bought a set of those projectors. Currently waiting for them in the mail.I am putting ddmtuning hid into mine though. The proper way to do hid is with projectors. Using straight hid in stock reflectors causes glare but is a much easier and pain free way to get better lighting.

I bought mine off ebay. They have the hid bulbs in them but no ballasts. Im putting a ddmtuning kit in them when they arive because I know those are quality hid. (I run them in my car in projectors). They are the exact same as the ones you showed but without the ballasts. They were $100 with shipping.

^It is good. But I'm first in it for the aesthetics. Having that 'pure white' light coming down the road looks awesome. And even better on a bike .

Second, the visibility takes a HUGE leap. Just in my garage, the HID probably lights up 60% more, and that's just with one light one. I can't wait to get it out on the road at night. (Bring it on deer!)

Don't be calling on the deer. Thursday night my g5 briefly met a doe. They didn't get along too well. Killed the deer but lucked out and only had mirror ripped off.

As far as lighting goes I agree. I think the f4i has decent light output but I'm looking to maximize it as much as possible. I got the halo eyes in red to go with my other red accents. I don't recommend hid in a stock headlight but rather in projectors so that you are not blinding others. They are also better because they Light the road even better as the projector also focuses all the light where you want it.
