    Re: Projector Headlights

    For what car?

    If you use halogen lamps with them, the light output will generally be dimmer. But if you get a compatible HID kit.. Booya. You're in business.

    Re: Projector Headlights

    Then projector's aren't what your looking for? What exactly are you trying to achieve?

    Higher light output that's affordable or a whiter light ouput or ect...?

    Look into some PIAA bulbs or Silverstars.

    Re: Projector Headlights

    silverstars were no brighter than my old halogens were. i ended up getting some euro blue lights that work well and am in the process of getting HID for me and my girl. friend who owns a shop sells kits and i get to have 4yr lay away lol.



    2006 Bright Island Blue 6s: stock 6 disc in dash, Hertz Hi-Energy 6.5" comps, MB Quart Ref 12", eclipse 5-channel sub amp.

    Car mods: Lowered on Mazdaspeed springs with Koni Yellow shocks, Racing beat front/rear sway bars with AWR end links, LED turn signals, tail lights, front side markers, 18" ADR Cypher rims, 55w HID's in low beam and fogs, 5% tint all the way around. No go fast mods yet...tuning and Mazda6 don't go well together .

    So that set me off, and I said "Well then why do they let deaf people drive?"

    Look into the foglight kit for your car as well as upgraded PIAA lamps for your stock assemblies. The Fogs provide a lot more light over stock.
