For those considering raxioms with hids

I just installed a set of raxiom smoked projectors while I was removing all my front end parts to get custom painted. I bought the raxioms off of here in the classifieds (thanks to thejohncarlson), but didn't keep the exact set up he sold me. It came with the projectors pre-wired for HIDs, but who knows what brand ballast they had so I went ahead and threw in some 35W morimoto ballast and they have a warranty. Bulb temp is 4300k and the bulbs I believe are morimoto also. Anyway, I have a couple crappy pictures for comparison between stock halogens+fogs with Sylvania bulbs and raxioms w/HIDs alone. These pictures are not the greatest for comparison due to being daytime and taken at different times.

First picture is the stock set up with Sylvania bulbs at about 9am. Second picture is for anyone wanting to see how it's all wired up. Third is just the raxioms by themselves at 2pm in the afternoon. The last couple pics are in there just because they look cool.

I'll be coming back and adding to this thread later with night time pictures with fogs on and off comparison. I went with 35W ballast BTW because 55W get too hot and will melt the housing of your raxioms.

I love the halo look. I just don't like not being able to see as well.

That's why I think HIDs help alot. They are considerably brighter. The pics don't do it justice but I would argue that the raxioms alone are brighter than the heads+fogs in person.

Well don't know if any of you guys care, but I got pics like I promised. On the first drive after install I was disappointed until I noticed the cut off was hitting the signs going up over the top of the highway. Got it all aimed up now and it's pretty nice. Had the lights on for over an hour considering driving around to find a spot to aim them and then me finally being happy with it and then driving around to admire the work lol. Once I went to park it, I felt the lenses for heat and they were not even warm to the touch so the 35W ballast are keeping the bulbs cooler than the halogens would. The fog lights however, will burn your hand after only being on for about 10 minutes.
