    Default Just when I thought I was done with electronics...

    I decided to splurge. Running the Euro Ellipsoids and hearing everyone tell me how wrong I was in going with Euro projectors if I plan to use HID, I decided that I will only live once and I will see for myself how it would work. Needless to say, IT IS AMAZING. The cut offs are perfect. I bought a kit with Philips Ballasts and Philips Ultinon 6,000k H1 Based Bulbs. This setup is AMAZING. I am so sad that I waited this long to drop HID H1's in my Euro's, but that's how it goes. Any way, here are pictures for the non-believers. I also have a video that shows the warm up of the bulbs!

    I notice 2 things:
    1. The cuttoff isn't perfect there is some light bleeding on top of the cutoff, it appears that the bulb is not aligned perfectly.
    2. The cuttoff is a bit high, you might want to lower it so you don't blind other drivers.
    I do have to admit that the brightness is amazing, my 55w H1s make me squint my eyes all the time.

    I know, have just been talking to Scott H about re-aiming now that the HID are in.
