Just for clarification, I want everyone to know there is NO baller status in this thread. That's a retro.... not some 8000k HIDs. lol.

HID high beams are useless IMO, because they take take to "warm up" and if you have to turn them on and off, you're not really going to have much of a highbeam. AND especially if you're putting in like 10,000k high beams, that means you are actually making the light output WORSE. fyi.

also, constant on/off is bad for kits.

which is why i never flicker my lights at anyone, cuz the low beams come on as well.

Just added H-beams last night. 55w 4300k set. INSANELY bright, absolutely cant use them with other cars around. Thankfully, the lows are already good enough, So I only turn on the high beams if I'm up in the mountains or its really late, and if I do have to turn them off, it's only for 5-15 seconds. shouldn't be too bad for them, they don't cool off completely for at least a minute.

I'll take pics tonight.

EDIT:

Pics....

High beams: 55w 4300k 9005's

Pictures don't do it justice... A video might.
