That is pretty nice. I'm not a fan of the color, but the the beam is gorgous. At least it doesnt look like a kit.

Try without the flash too so the flash doesnt bleed into the HID's light. Take a pic of the light on the road too if you could.

Taken from http://faqlight.carpassion.info/car-oem-hid.htm

Manual, flash off, white balance off (or sunny) with a shutter speed of 1/80th, film speed at 160, and F-stop at F2.8.

Head on shot in the dark from 25 ft and 100 ft (7.5m and 30m).
Against the wall shot in the dark at 5, 25 and 50ft (1.5m, 7.5m and 15m) distance.
Down the road shots from the roof on a dark road.
Head on shot at daytime. (Will show cosmetic difference)

nice beam though... but i m guessing you wont be able to notice the flicker since your using 8k bulbs...

hey guys believe or not i'm an idiot...i still can't get an idea of how to aim these friggin things...i was driving all nice and fine for the past like 3+ weeks and i'm loving the output of it..than i noticed in an office building as i turned around that my drivers side seems a bit brighter than my passenger side....

i think its because i cheated and pointed the drivers side out to the left a bit more than i should...so this way the the light wouldnt completely shine directly in front of the car and further down the road...but then i figured if i point the passenger side in toward the left also it would even the brightness out...but it seems like in order for that to work the passenger side headlight would be just about overlapping the drivers side, and thats just plain silly....

i guess the "step" part like the diagonal thats going up on the drivers side needs to be hitting like the licence plate/rear bumper right at about the halfway point on the car infront of you like say 20 feet or so away so this way the top of the cut off is toward the right side of the car thus resulting in the driver's side headlight being not as bright? but if i do that wont that affect the amount of light i'm throwing further down the road ??? damn these stupid sheilds and their high step...wish it was lower so i can figure out how to aim these damn things....anyone got any pictures of them aiming the headlights or taping up a wall to show their points/and or measurements?

omg after looking at the pics and all the comments i just have to say that i am convince on buying this for my car, OMG!!!!!!!!! it looks really sick mang. well thanks for all the help and all the pictures. it really helps me a lot. as far as the installation, i think im going to have to get it profesionally done cause i cant do that. im from souther calibtw by san diego and well im going to have to look for a place that can install them. so all i have to do is buy the complete bosch Xenon D2S HID projector package from hidplant.com and the harness from that other place, get it installed and walla, my car will look slick. nice thanks a lot for all of ur help and one more question, the HID bulbs they send me r they the 4300k or should i get different ones???? well thanks a lot again..

I bought the apexcone 35w kit from therpmstore.com with D2S bulbs and harness,and then just got the projectors from hidplanet.That way you get a lifetime warranty and oem quality with the retrofit.

where'd you mount the ballast?

the bulbs they give you are like 4100k and after a few hundre hours of use they go up to around 4300k or 4500k i can't rememeber...but after time you'll bearly even notice it....

i'd recommend getting a few #8 washers and putting them in the projector itself...the cutoff will look nice and blue, or you can always bend the sheild to get a little more color...but with that i wasn't sure how much to bend one to match up with the other, so the washer mod might be an option...

i probably wouldnt' recommend taking it to a shop, because when you do it yourself you know where you messed up a bit and you know that YOU did it....not just for gratification, but just for knowing that you did it yourself and everything is okay. oh yeah its cheaper to...
