Headlight question, quick help please
Ok, looking to get the wife a set of HID'* for her birthday. She doesn't have the greatest night vision (long story, actual medical problem) and I thought she'd like them.
Question is, I went out and pulled the bulbs out to see what model they were. The lows were 9011'*, and the highs are 9005'*, does this sound right? I thought the GXP'* had 9005/9006'*? Unfortunately I don't have an owner'* manual. What are the correct bulbs?
Also, I believe I can disable the DRL'* by pulling the relay, but has anyone wired up the lows to run all the time? Is tying the high beam hot lead to the low'* through a diode sufficient? Or is there a smoother way of accomplishing this?
And before someone posts up w/ "HID'* aren't really brighter, you'll blind people, retro kits are a waste of money, you should spend thousands and get a projector setup, etc. etc"....save it. I've had HID'* before, love them. They are brighter, I can see better, I'm not an idiot. Well, maybe I am an idiot, but I can tell if the headlights are brighter.
