So benno is our resident magpie??? Attracted by bright shining things?? lol
Well put,My view is HIDs as used for regular headlights around town can be very annoying/blinding, i got a headache from some clown behind me in a Hummer with HID headlights, (even after i adjusted all my mirrors), made me want to get behind him and drive with my spotties on (i didn't)
Enough people "already" hate modded 4wds on our roads without them having blinding headlights as well.
Just think, the average joe getting his retina's burnt out when stopped at the traffic lights, he will think the headlights lights are so bright because its a "lifted 4wd" (not because of HIDs) i belive it will just add more fuel to the fire of 4wd haters !
If you cant see far enough with what nissan has fitted factory when driving around the city (which i dont belive anyones eyes are that bad,and can still drive ?) sure, put your high beams on, or get bright spotties ........at least you have the option to turn them OFF in the city near other road users.
You won't see any difference... enjoy.... I am also wondering I used the 500mm extensions but does that make them less bright because of any volt drop in the cables?
I would have liked that gauge but the price and that I had to go drilling into the turbo housing and mark a blade were not really appealing.Ben adopts the motto of: "Nothing exceeds like excess!!!!!"
Checked out his dash/****pit lately?
Mind you he does have limits I found a set up that would measure how many revs your actual turbo was doing. He liked it but wasn't %100 sold.
Haha, All good that you can see well, but what about the 2-3 Tonne bullet travelling at 110km/h towards you?If your headlights aren't bright enough with their standard output then I would go HIDs, being able to see clearly is more important to me than other peoples feelings.
As mentioned though, because your 4wd is a lot higher than most other vehicles you will be pointing it at their eyes no matter what so ive avoided doing since I can just turn on my flood lights when I need them.
Rather tell them you drove into something on the road cause the candles in the standard lamps are soooo crap?How would you feel explaining to my fiance and 5yr old son that i died in a car accident caused by your "ILLEGAL" overly bright and incorrectly focused HID headlights? explain to them how you couldnt cope with just some HID in your spotlights, you had to have them in your headlights as well, and how you dont care what others think as long as you can see well ...............
Bit of a troll statement there Benno?If you dont like HIDs come up with a suitably priced <$500 solution to the woeful patrol low beam, otherwise quit your whining.
haha, Typical of you Benno, shock style lines ay, Ill tell YOU what gets my temper up, the fact ive come so close many times to an accident from being blinded by HID lights while travelling to work. Maybe this means its not just a shock line, its actually been that close sometimes ??Put HIDs in or take them out, I dont give a fck, but resorting to shock style lines gets my temper up.
:withstup: Yer the Projector Headlamps on my new SS are crap , bout the best your gonna get without being a car with proper "Legal" HID headlampsRather tell them you drove into something on the road cause the candles in the standard lamps are soooo crap?
Hehehe... yeah pretty much agree with you on that. :withstup:Comes down to same old arguements (the exact above I have heard several times before).....
