Ok guys, I should be receiving my HID conversion Kit anyday (4300K). I reniged on the 6000K and with the 4300K because i want the most light output as possible.. Anyways, what do I do about my high beams? Will the HID kit put out enough light that brights aren't necessary? I also have the Hella Angel eye driving lights where my fog lights are... The ones you buy on PFYC.com. Should I aim those up more and just use them when it's really dark? I don't know what to do.. What have you all done? Will I see as well with HID's (4300K) as I did with my Halo's on High beam?

Thanks Much,

As long as you get them aimed properly, you wont need high beams. I have a HI/LO system in my car and I never use the high beam, because there is no need. Haven't used the fog lamps since I had HID installed either. Mine is a 6K kit and there is a TON of light.

Save your driving lights for bad weather as HIDs are known to be bad in fog/rain/snowfall.

I thought HID's were helpful in inclement weather conditions? I guess I was wrong on that lol! Anyways, how much lower do I have to aim the HID's then where the stock Halogens are aimed? Do I want to point the HID's more towards the ground? Anyone have a useful link or website that explains how to aim these conversion kits?

We went over this man... Lower does mean closer to the ground. Youre gonna have to judge how far, becaue you will blind people with a kit at stock levels.

Hids arent so hot in crapy weather because they reflect a lot. Youll see. Just like I told you about...

As far as a link, the webpage i told you about many times will help you out.
