    I'm looking to fit HID's to my coupe which currently has halogens. I've done a bit of research and its suggested to fit projector lights as to disperse the brighter light more effectively and prevent them dazzling oncoming drivers.

    Would these lights be suitable? Clicky!

    Can anyone suggest anything else? I've already bought the conversion kit with the LED angel eyes which are now fitted.

    Something like that would be better than using the standard reflector bowl of a halogen setup. However they are still not Ideal.

    They will give a better light output tho!
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    Cheers Adam. I'll look into getting them at a later date then.

    Does anyone know if I can retrofit headlight washers?

    Ok bit of an update, and a different question.

    I've fitted the HID's but I'm looking to swap the H7 lamps that came with the kit to H7R's so that it'll reduce any glare.

    After looking online for replacement H7R 55w lamps the cheapest I found was £40 for the pair exc postage , however I can the whole kit off ebay for £50!

    So I'm thinking... Fit H7R's to my dipped beam and the H7's to my main beam.

    Or at the very least buy the kit, fit the H7R's and keep the H7's, ballasts and canbus as spares.

    Your thoughts?
