    Headlight question

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone with HID conversion could help me, what headlights do i have? and what HID kit should i get, the normal version or the "r" version?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Cheers

    without pictures i'd guess you have standard headlights. for them, personally i'd recommend a 35w h7 4300k/6000k kit

    I can see the picture

    Get the H7R's as they are designed for Reflector style headlights.

    The H7R is designed for the reflector lamp - it's got like a cover on one side that reduces glare.

    35W 6000K should be good I personally opted for 5000K. A link to my auto-bio is in my signature

    I've got 35w H7R 4300 in standard headlamps and they're spot on. Very bright and nice white light - I wasn't interested in the 'blue' look.
