12000K HID Kit

last kit i had which was an 8000k ive upgraded to 12000K, I am in the process of installation ( its a plug and play kit ) and i noticed that theres 3 wires left over, 1 seems to be a ground wire, and theres 1 split prongs that fit into the stock light socket though i noticed theres only prongs on the driverside. It all hooks up to a relay then to the battery so it would possibly make sense that i only need to wire them to 1 socket and the relay puts the power over to the passanger side as well..should this be fine ? My 8000k kit a friend installed so i never got very hands on with a kit except for popping the lights in and mounting everything. Thanks a lot.

Re: 12000K HID Kit

HID with the standard headlight design (on non HID cars) are not efficient or works well... i found a very nice and long site about this, it was very interesting.

Re: 12000K HID Kit

www.danielsternlighting.com <---the link mentioned is most likely Dan's


Quote The Headlight guru

"Adding a lightsource that is not intended for your headlamp or any optical device is a poor choice. Putting HID, LED, neon, whathaveyou in a optical system not intended for these systems will not perform as intended. An HID lightsource produces a light arc vs. the straight filament in halogen and incondesent light sources. A round peg in a square hole.

Putting a much higher output lightsource in place of another will create glare problems as the optics of the headlamp will not be able to cope with the increased light output. Headlamp development is a very complicated process. There is a reason that headlamp laws are by far the greatest and most complete of all the automotive requirements. Check out FMVSS and see how much bigger 108 requirements (headlamps) are to the others.

Higher K temps will make your headlamps appear brighter. Not actually produce more light.

For performance, use a standard boring 9007 (HB5) bulb. No tint, no fancy packaging, no highwattage, no bulb over $15, no BS. Add relays or larger wires per Dan's site for maximum performance.

Dont forget to reaim your headlamps after suspension changes, adding a heavy stereo, etc."
