    Do you have projector headlight housings?

    If not, please for the love of god don't put HID bulbs in your halogen lamp housing.

    Re: Hid Xenon Bulb

    if you want just bright and clear then DDM tuning is decent or this german manufacturer Digital HID Conversion Kit 4300K-30000K [Digital] for a classy look.

    if you want obnoxiously painful bright HIDs you might want some other brands.




    09 Sienna Subs : 4 hdc3 18s c pillar below windowline Sub amp: ampere tfe 8.0 at half ohm.
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS Mids/Highs amp: PPI 900.4
    Front stage: 3 way active front stage with Massive Audio CKX tweets, alpine type R 6x9 midrange in doors + Crescendo PWX 10s in the kick
    320 amp Singer alt. 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    What output is your ballast? Phillips makes high quality bulbs.

    Re: Hid Xenon Bulb

    Have you done any searching for replacement bulbs with your car's year make and model? The most important thing is getting a bulb that fits your headlamps, and then you have to decide with color temperature you want. There are many web sites that explain this. I have used Racesport and Theretrofitsource.com bulbs. I'm using Racesport ballasts and a relay harness and TRS projectors and bulbs. TRS is available by phone if you want to talk to someone.

    I've done research, and I know that the oem color is best on brightness and that's what I have. The thing is that I bought and installed aftermarket projectors headlamps recently and after a while I noticed that the light beam is not focusing properly, even after I properly aimed them. So, I'm thinking is the bulbs that are not that good, that's why I'm looking for better bulbs, that are good on focusing and the light beam is aimed properly on the road.

    Re: Hid Xenon Bulb

    Focusing is a matter of the projector design and the proper placement of the bulb inside the housing. If you bought poor quality headlamps that is your problem, assuming everything is installed and correctly aimed. Projectors vary greatly in focus. You can see this if you look over The Retrofit Source online: headlight upgrades for all applications at their photos.

    So, what you are saying is, that most likely the problem is the projectors, not the bulbs?

    Yes. There isn't much to an HID bulb. You wouldn't blame the bulb if your Maglite wasn't focusing. You'd change the focus.
