Hello fellow fordmods junkies 8-) ...

Just chasing some personal opinions (as i'm undecided) in regards to HID wattage...

I'm pretty set on 6000 Kelvin for colour... but the 35 or 55watt ones?

I mean brighter would be better... but in saying that am I going to kill oncoming drivers, or will i have to have them pointed so low that they don't?

Hopefully some of you people can help me...

Oh if it helps these will be going in the projector low beams of an ED XR front...

Replies and experience very muchly appreciated...

Cheers,
Tim

if you have time read through that little bastard. that mavs fella really knew his s**t. shame everyone seemed to ignore him. :?

basically the jist of it is you want around the 4800K range (from memory) 35w will be fine.

and talking from experience, 35w hids will blind oncoming drivers, as i have been this blinded driver before!! :lol:
