Ah yes, I had those. And they worked well with my upgraded harness. But I wanted more. So I tore out the harness and put in the HIDs. Looks like I'll be going back to the H4s for now.

OhSixTJ Well I just threw some on. First impressions are good. None of the annoying glare you get with regular lenses. I'll post back after sun down with more...

What ballast are you running? 35W or 55W?

Looks like I know what my next project is...

I will try to get better pictures than what is on that thread. And DDM is $30 or $39 for 55W with a Lifetime warranty.

Oh yeah, all you need to do is but the H4 hid bulb with the kit and just install it.
Heres a link that I have gotten every hid kit from.
Great price and great people!!!

Just make sure they are E-codes.
