It would have to be high and low as the headlamp only has one bulb.

Just low. HID's can't have a High also. Which is why you see cars that use HID setups have 4 different lights 2 for low and 2 for high.

But believe me when I say these are plenty bright enough to where you would not need high beams at all.

Today i received my H4 55/60W headlights. The blue is the bulb. With the reflection of the camera it seems like every thing is blue but it's not.

Will the stock wiring take the load of 55/60w h4s?

Rip the bulb is just a regular bulb that you can pull out from the dash. It can be replaced with a different color bulb. Pretty much you know how people have the alarm status lights wired into their lights? Thats the same bulb here. I can connect it or leave it out. I can possibly install an orange one there and use it as a blinker.

Hey Tripp, I put the same ones in mine 2 weeks ago, they work fine. I did have to take the bulb back out of one to adjust that reflecter in front of it a little.

It also can be wired up to a separate switch that will keep that little light on when just the parking lights are on. I have it on mine, but never wired it in.

Those small bulbs are called city lights, in europe they do not allow headlights, either high or low beam, to be used in the cities, they act as marker lights, brighter than parking lights but not as bright as low beams, it is to reduce light pollution. They came as standard fare on VW's in the 50's and early 60's here in the US when the VW's were 6 volt systems before all the federal import requirements were put in place.

I have Delta H4's and then I put fat boy bulbs in them. Seems to be ok. . . Delta makes a plug in HID kit - only costs about $950. . . that's why I went with the H4's.

Just installed my H4s... looks.. blue
3 screws to pop off the stock bezel

Off


4 screws and the stock light should pop right out. It's held in place by the shinny metal thing.


They gave me mirrored headlights so the notches were flipped so i needed to make new notches. No biggy.. take the pliers and just brake the thing right off inside the blue box.




The headlights were a bit thin so i needed to bend the holders a bit so it keeps the headlight tight. On mine with out doing that the headlight would be loose and move around.


Not much difference because its so bright but you can still see it.



continued..

I tried them out. They are a bit brighter than before but they are just too blue. When i turn my fogs on you can clearly see the yellowish color from the stock fogs on the wall and right above it you can see cyan color line from the headlights. For those that dont know "cyan" color.. its here at 180┬░

Me? My kit.. not much improvement and its bluer. I'd save my money and get something else, maybe a better bulb would do the job because this one is really dark blue colored which i'm sure helps dim it. I got it for 24 bucks from ebay.
