Default Re: "HID Question" If you folks don't Mined

I wanna get some projectors with some hids soooo bad. It would be pretty fun if you could control the projector so if someone is pissin u off infront you like say going UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT! you could aim the projector at their rearview mirror

hummmmm interesting, well if they don't turn out right, I will take them back, They did give me a option to bring them back if they don't turn out right, makes a difference when you can talk directly to the vendors you buy from.

12k 55 watt ddm kits look like any 8k out there. not purple at all but a good hue of blue

and my 3k 'jdm' fogs with ring delete lol

I had 6k 35 watt heads before but the new 12k's cut the fog WAY more. it's kinda funny people will drive RIGHT next to me when it's zero visibility(well for them haha) just so they can see

All HID in Halogen Reflector housing produces Glare.

That is why I built mine with MH1 Projectors.

ddm gives the options for 'HID Harness" and "Error Eliminator" are either of them necessary or helpful when installing there kits? ive noticed alot of companys give options for relay kits are they just needed in high low kits?

yeah for just the single bulb, not hi/lo you dont need the harness, just a ballast, but for the hi/lo you need the harness kit. and i dont think the rangers have any problems with spitting codes cause of the lights, i think thats more of a high end car thing.

you should not need any harness, even if you get the hi/low the lights in these cars are not computer controlled, however in my european cars it makes a difference, I hope I made since.
