Re: Some questions

Apart from the poor fecker coming the other way at night with his eyeballs smouldering.

Rather then having to start re-wiring for HIds, have you looked at some of the high powered Quartz, which will suit focus etc?
Or LEDs which are a straight swap?

High powered Quartz ones? And LED ones are nice, I just hate how most of the LED's go out and you're left with black patches.

I still want to get the projector lights simply for aesthetic reasons (the factory ones, don't like the aftermarket ones with angel eyes and stuff)

Re: Some questions

Apologies, old fashioned wording.
Quartz, Quartz Halogen, Halogens.
IE bog standard H4 or H7 bulbs as originally fitted.

I'm thinking either of the higher powered, 100w instead of normal 55 or the more specialist types.
For instance...

Not used them as not felt the need.

Re: Some questions

The Night breakers do make a noticeable difference but beware higher
power bulbs as the heat can damage the headlight lenses.

Re: Some questions

Yes if you want more light, night breaker or Philips X-treme, identical bulb design for a straight swap, easiest option. I use an X-treme H1 in my maxi-scooter, really good.
