there should be a little knob on the back that adjusts the height of the beam, one for low and one for high.

For that price you could have gotten a cheapo ebay hid conversion kit, or half of a good kit.



umm nah mate. it cost $350 for a decent 'illegal' kit so nah i'm right. i'm happy with the way they are. and i'm definately not mounting spotlights. my car isn't a B&S ute or rally car :lol:

Depends where you buy them from. $250 will get you a decent kit - not the best available, but very decent.

I have artic blue H4's and they are excellent. They are a better colour, and +50%. I am going to do the other globes in artic as well. To me this is the best first step. Heaps better light in 5 minutes with no increase in power consumption.

If that isn't enough i will fit 55/60w driving lights kitted out with artic's. The overall effect would be miles better light with only a small increase over stock consumption.

There are +80%'s available now but i will still go for artics as the light better penetrates mist and fog.

Off the top of your head do you reckon the reversing lights can be upgraded?
