Went to my parents house today and changed my oil and installed my Apexcone Slimline 55w 4500k HIDs. I decided to remove the upbeam reflector, and I love how much light it gives + how crisp it is on the road.

Even though I purchased the brightest/whitest ones, it still matches my "white" LEDs almost perfectly.

Thoughts?

Depends on your level of handicap. It is though very easy. Just research first and when you actually do it you'll know what to do next.

If you&#39;re the kind of jackass that doesn&#39;t spend the time to properly aim after the install, then sure, but even halogens can blind.
