    If you look at my last picture^^ there isnt much of a cutoff. The light floods everything but does not really blind oncoming passengers. But thats just me

    Anyone doing an HID conversion really does need to consider how much light scatter there is... (If you dont know this is caused because a standard bulb has a very small focal point and an HID has a large one... so the reflector is not built to properly reflect the light)

    If you want to just through a bulb in there like the Honda guys I suppose that is ok as long as you are behind the beam, but when i was invesigating doing it on the vette i was going to do a projection swap. (which would not be easy, but in a T/A you are working with a little bit more room and i have seen projectors done)



    Thats the stuff right there...

    i ran electrial tape around my housings(stock housings with 9006 sockets JB welded to the back). And i went to strips down from the top though it seems to cut down on alot of the glare and hot spots and still puts out alot of light. My fogs are insane and had to be aimed low. But its amazing at night.

    I have 6k hids in my low and fog. White LEDs in my front blinkers and clear front side markers. I'll take a pic later. I also have 6k's in my Trailblazer and gf's tiburon. They give you a white color with a little blue and are brighter that the 10k. There like 60 a set on eBay. If you use led blinkers you need the electronic flasher like $3 or $4 dollars and takes a few min to install. I also got rid of that stupid drl feature, I don't need lights on during the day why burn out the bulbs faster and spend more money and the heat the blinker lens up if you have normal bulbs.

    Thanks guys!
    I have white LEDs in the side markers and turn signals.
    Do a google search for DDM Tuning for the HIDS
