So I got my projectors in.. Non-Halo ones... Love the look... Cleaner then the stock ones.




I will have a shot of the lights on tonight, so you guys can see how the HID kit looks with it... They really bright but not blinding to on coming traffic or to the cars in front of me.

Interested to see the beam pattern. Take a picture of it shining on a wall or something to show the cutoff. Keep in mind those are NOT real projectors.

Here are the light shots...

I have to do some final alignments to both headlights.. but I will get to that later on in the week..

And I understand there not the "Real McCoys" But I didn't want to spend a crazy amount of money for something I may and may not like.. This was more of a Experimental start.. To see if I like the look, and for only $30.00 shipped to my door I would say that its a Good Start....

Later on if I come across the real deals, at least I know what the XJ will look like with them installed..


Distant shot...



Fairly close...

Thanks for the kind words..


The HID's were very easy to do, I've done it so many times to so many vehicles I've owned its starting to become second nature to me. But its basicaly just a plug and play kit. No hard wiring or anything. The kit came with everything needed for it to just be a 20 min job.

Here is the problem. These headlights have a terrible cut off. What is circled in red in the glare. A good set of headlights wont have nearly as much glare if any at all. This is what blinds oncoming drivers. You can see it better in the left of the photo.

Ok.. I see.. So far it seems to be fine on the roads. Normaly with my last car I would get a few people high beaming me in the opposite lane, but those were also none Projector light..

So far no one has given me the high beams... But like I said these were more of a test factor then anything else. Granted I can see ten times better on the road and through the back roads where it isn't lit from the Town..

There is one thing I wanna try, the HID bulbs have a shield on them, which my buddy said are for the light control, but when installed the shield was below the bulb and not on top like it should be. So I'm going to turn the Head lights around and see if that makes a difference on the Spatter it has.

Yep. Nothing wrong with wanting to see well at night. My headlights are autopal E-codes, but the passenger side is rusting out for whatever reason. I have heard of people running E-code with HID with great cut off and pattern, so ill probably go that route with a set of higher quality e-codes and an HID conversion, or pony up and do a full blown projector retrofit.

edit: It might help a little, but it is most likely just the fact that they are cheap ebay housings with a bad pattern to begin with. I dont think i have heard anybody that is impressed with them. Most people buy them to chop them up to fit projectors.

LOL... I know I use to run E-codes in my Volkswagens.. Expensive stuff..

If you go with the HID kit, go with the 4300kv kit, its the brightest one to can get with out a blue tint, or any other color...

Thats the plan. Keep it around 5k for the best light output. I have thought about doing something <4300k as a fog application as well.
