Er, meant HDI lights, as in xenon type thingys.......

HID or High intensity discharge is what you mean

A few electricians at work have converted "normal" headlights in everyday cars to HID using parts borrowed from Range Rovers etc

we use HID spots - in terms of light output they are on a different planet to filament lamps,

only thing to be aware of is the legality side - it would seem HID upgrades are illegal in cars not fitted with self levelling headlights

the chances of you actually getting pulled and done for it though would be an entirely different matter :unsure:

Damn, I hadn't put the HID info back on the site yet :unsure:

While I work on that, perhaps you'd enjoy

? :lol:

Having seen Jez's set in action (when not under small arms fire) they are massively bright compared to normal lights, even bling ones. The small lights are normal H4 bulbs on full beam:
