Default HID/Halogen Camparison pictures

Got a few comparison pictures of Halogen vs HID
Halogen - Silverstar Ultra's
HID - 55W 6000K Hi/Lo kit

Pictures were taken exactly 24 hours apart and in the exact same location.










Love the kit and highly recommend it (DDM Raptor 9007 Hi/Lo). Since the pictures were taken, I have angled the headlights down to the proper height so I'm not blinding anybody by throwing light everywhere (and wasting it too).

I had to go back to my old ultras for about a week a while ago. I wanted to vomit every time I turned them on.

I've got full HID in my truck (55w 6k fogs/heads and 35w 5k 9" hellas) and I love them....I will never go back.
Doesn't help that I used to own a HID company...
