Are HID lights worth buying?
Has anybody bought them and actually noticed a huge difference in the light in provides on the road?
I know they give off that nice blue tint and all.. But is there a difference between a standard Bulb and the HID?
Im thinking of upgrading my bulbs.. I currently have cheap $4 'blue tint' h4's from Hong Kong, they are slightly better then standard IMO.. But dont know if I should get the Narva Super bright or HID.. also Im looking for a brighter light.. not a Blue tint as such..

Thanks..

I have 55w HID's in the Hi-beam on my ute - it's helped a lot with night time driving ALTHOUGH they aren't as good as halogen lights in fog or rain as they just reflect of everything. I don't run them in the Lo-beams though as I'm not a dick head and I don't enjoy blinding oncoming drivers.

Halogen Lights reflect everything for me in the FOG and Rain with Hi Beam.. Low beam is the best to keep down glare.. and still be able to see the road..
I was thinking of getting the 35W HID, Lo/Hi .. You recon that would blind oncoming drivers?

We put a 35w HID kit in my Triton. It's definitely alot better then the lights that WERE in it......but yeah don't think I'd bother doing it in my VK or VT as I rekon the Halogens light up more. The HID's reflect signs alot more, but yeah overall I rekon the stock lights in my VT are better then the HID's in my Triton (altho I do have 6 spotties on the Triton to compensate).

What do you recon about the VR commodores Headlights then? Would you think HID's would help?
I think I have **** lights.. but I am comparing to a AU & BF falcon..
The Lights in a VK & VT are like twice the size of the lights in my VR.. :\

I want to get HIDS now that i have projector headlights, as long as you align them right I dont see a problem with them. Im not "blinded" every time i see a car with HIDS, nor have i ever been, 4X4's sittin 1ft off my rear bumper with their headlights on is another story....
