Cool RED Eyes...

Hai,
I have been using 8000k bosh HID(White) on my high, as i used to do lot of off road when i had installed the headlights. The low is still on halogen, what would be the right HID config for the projector low beam. Guess yellow is better, as the bengaluru cops eyes , when they see white..LOL.
Should confess, to have the beams set to the desired levels took lot of pain. I finally found Basha, next to the BMTC depo Indiranagar. to have it set the right way, with his headlamp beam adjusters.
Has anyone done a complete HID with ballast set up. Means high/low and fog. How is the battery situation with a set up of this kind. What bulb is perfect on the fog if it is on HID.

If you go with hid on low,hi and fogs your battery will not be effected and for fogs you need h8/h11 bulbs (both have same locks and filament positioning

Seems like people have stopped eyeing on Angle eyes now.
Well, I had a noobie question. I have H4 HID on my Swift. Is it possible to fit those on the projector setup. If yes, then is it possible to procure the angel eye projector setup minus the HID set. Please throw some light on this.
Thanks in advance.



PS-: I had checked with an installer and he said that H4 are kind of big for the projector setup, so it wont fit properly, will touch the glass and thus I need to go in for H1.

If you are going for a projector setup, then you need H1 bulbs. H4 will not fit.

Default Visibility With Angel Eyes

Hi all,

This question goes out to all who have installed Angel Eyes in their Swifts - As 7.7k-8k is no small amount to spend on this kit, I would like to know if the visibility is better after installing these kits or are they just for the bling factor?

I have read on this forum somewhere that the visibility is not that great & one has to open up the entire assembly & make alot of adjustments to get the beam pattern & throw right. Is this true? Also that the quality of these kits are pretty inferior & tend to get damaged internally in the future.

@Epic,

I am personally dissatisfied with the projectors and HID combo on my SwifDy. The throw is never right and bright, though I have gone through many for adjustments. Also, the outer skin of the headlamps starts peeling and is a sore sight. Mine was done a couple of years ago and newer ones may be better.

My suggestion would be to stay away.

@Epic, I second Mr.Balboa. I too have issues with the throw. The intensity is good as its HID, but angel eyes are no good to me. I am constantly thinking to revert back to regular assembly with either HID on or then back to basic relay 90-100 halogens.

My take - stay away !

Well thank you Rocky & Mushroomz for the genuine feedback. I was really looking forward to installing Angel Eyes in my Swift but will rather spend on something more worthwhile. I rest my case.

A year ago, I used to see a lot of swifts with angel eyes and projector setup in Bangalore. Now its a rare sight. So its obvious, all show no glow
