i've heard stories about how even with HIDs, those H4 housings are utter crap compared to a nice hella sealed beam light..

Nice looking care mate:)
Can you give me more infos about your headlight setup?

What he said. There are 7" round HID projector lamps you can buy that'll look and function better than any re-based bulb you can put in there.

Or you can just take 15 minutes, throw a couple of re-based 10,000 H4 e-bay specials and be the bane of on coming traffic, the target for cops and be laughed at by everyone else.

If you must do it, get a GOOD pair of real GLASS H4 lamps, Cibie, or Hella, not some stupid plastic "diamond cut" Pep Boys specials and a GOOD Bi-Xenon H4 kit NOT purchased from e-bay. Make sure it does both HIGH and LOW beam. Don't get a color higher than 5000 otherwise you'll just lose light.


Your call.

Since you're in Greece, remember, the EU has very strict headlamp laws. Don't get caught.

First of all,thanks for replying

I can't understand why people around are so aggresive.
Maybe my scripts are not been understandable 100% but I think I haven't gave the impressiom that I'm a 18 years old boy who likes blink blink things...

I metion at my initial question about using common projectors or the other style you proposed,H4 lamp style-that's all.
Of course I know that using HID lamp into a common headlight has as result the blindness of everyone ahead.

Thanks for the help-Sunday I'll get the round headlights and grille and once I will install the hid projectors on them,I will post pics.

My apologies, I wasn't trying to be aggressive. I just wanted to give you the benefit of what I've learned over the last couple of years. I didn't want you to wind up spending money on something that got you into trouble or didn't work right or at all. I mean, if you have a disposable income then go for it.

I completely understand the appeal of bling bling blue or purple lights, but remember, the further away from the 4000-5000 color range (in K) the lower the lights output becomes. There's a direct ratio of light output(lumens) to light color (degree kelvin). If you were to put 8000 lamps in your car and compare them to a set of 4,100-4,500 lamps, you'll find that the lower K lamps will illuminate much brighter. Even 3,500 (yellowish) HIDs are brighter. But that spectrum might not snow on some road markings right.

The post that 242teeI mentioned by going to http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?36267-80-rabbit-truck-7-quot-round-retrofit is probably going to be your best bet. That setup with a real projector will likely out perform any cheap fake BMW angel eye lamp you can hope to get.

You just gotta ask yourself the question, do I want it to look cool or do I want it to perform well? Angel eyes look cool, but when it comes right down to it, it's just a gimmick.

However, if you really want angel eyes, www.hidplanet.com or www.theretrofitsource.com have lots of information on how to make your own angel eyes for very little money. Plus they look good.

I have allready the HID projectors a month ago.Was planning to use them on my squear headlights but looks stupid...
So I had to change my plans,and now moving to install flathood-long grille+7" round headlights and mount the projectors(by the way,I'm using 5.000Kelvin lamp-I hate bluish light and angel eyes too)into 7" roundlights.

The plan is just the VW Caddy-cut a little bit of the back and mount the projector.

Thanks for the help-I'll post pictures when I'm finished

The gattling gun projectors look a little demented right? Before i do it i'd first have to find a reason to own a car in nyc. :)
