yes I do.. I know alot of people have there opinions about reflector housings w/ hid setups and all .. but I personally dont like projectors that much.. maybe on later down the road.. but I love how hids project in reflector housings.. my old fofo had hids and I loved them..

Its not the light output for you thats typically a problem, its the people that are driving towards you that get their eyeballs blasted into the backs of their skulls thanks to the eye-poppin' light of an unrestricted HID setup (no cutoff light and more light throw than your typical Tina Turner dress). Food for thought...

yeah... I can see what you mean.. buttt honestly here in NC there are so many people running around with HIDs in reflector housings that it doesnt bother that much people.. but here in my local town I believe i'm gonna be the only person to have 55w balasts..that I know of

nice, but at least for the general public, try 2 aim the headlights ,with the hids in, a bit lower. u dont have 2 be another butthole who doesnt care about the effects of hids in a reflective housing

Im pretty sure Lexus ran their HIDS in a reflector housing before they developed their projector housing

Yes, but that reflector housing was designed for HID's.
Stock focus housings are designed for halogen bulbs. Big difference.

^^^Then run a nice halogen [:)]

Hid's are a tad longer. The focus H4 HID can not be run properly in HID form. I have a set of bulbs. The low beams are sketchy and the highs are just bleh.

Like the car but i can attest to and 100% stand by get a set of projectors to run HID's in.

While i say this for other drivers i also say it for you. Because it is designed for them your light intensity as well as overall performance of the HID will please you far beyond what any reflector can do.

Keep up the good work.
