HIDs and black housing headlights installed...

Did them last night in the 30 degree weather. I love how they turned out. Its the low beam only kit but you almost dont even need high beams...by the way when I turn my high beams on the go out, is this normal? And when I get some off road lights wired up for high beams is there a way to keep the HIDs on at the same time???

Once you change them it looks so much better imo. I was debating to, but I am glad I did.

those black housing look like they help reduce the glare. When I had HID in my chrome housings I had light shooting out around my grill, lol.

Looks good. The HID's kicking off when you hit the hi-beams, yes that's normal.

I didn't know HID's went off when you switch to Hi beams, I guess that makes sense if you only have the low beam bulb

It's only like that on the ones that aren't a Hi/Low kit.

Have your aux lights hooked up to a different switch.
