    Angel eye brightness

    I was wondering, Is it possible to change the reflective part at the back of the light from a standard light? This would make angel eyes much safer. Ive got HID's in and theyre still pap. Or if you could polish the inside somehow to make it brighter. If this is possible or someone has done it would be V grateful to know.

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    Not without destroying the beam pattern and blinding oncoming cars

    Yes, how have you done this M1C VX?? I was thinking if it was possible to take the back out of a standard light and butcher it into Angels this would be perfect. Willing to pay good money if anyone can do this, or else swap with Shark eyes. I do a lot of motorway driving and angel eyes are kinda dangerous

    i made the main beam the normal driving lamps, just swapped the plugs over,
    it doesnt blind other drivers, if its on full beam the bulbs would be brighter

    Its the beam of the lamps themselves that cause the dazzle - not the bulbs. Standard fit on these units would be H7/55w therefore both dipped/main bulbs are same brightness - the dazzling effect is caused by the beam pattern of the lens so just swapping plugs is a bad idea.

    Just my 2p worth

    My advice - sell the angels on and fit 2 sets of HIDs to OE lamps
