Default 9005/9006 Conversion

I did this on my Accord and I was wondering if anybody here has tried it out. Its pretty much taking your high beam bulb and putting it in your low beam spot.There are a few minor steps that need to be done in order to do this. Im goin to try and do it this weekend if I can find the time. If anybody has let me know how everything turned out. Im guessing the results would be the same.

I was thinking about that , nut I found som GREAT bulbs on e-bay for 60.00 and they light up EVERYTHING . Lot'* of people ask me where I got the HID system from . See what they do is upgrade the bulb from 60 watts to 80 watts and cover it with blue so it'* like adding you high beam in your low beam spot with a very bright blue color . The whole kit is called the xd-5 and that includes all 4 bulbs!

From the past I learned some people had problems of their harnesses frying out over time because the watts was to much for the gauge wire. Thats why Id rather not go that route. I have my old HID system from my Accord that I want to put on my car now. But I am going to hold off on that until I figure out how to bypass the lights coming on automatically since it is strongly recommended not to use it on systems like we have. Also if the fuses for the headlights are like this then I can use the system:
Low Beam R Low Beam L High Beam R High Beam L
OR
Low/High Right Low/High Left

Im going to call them later on today and ask them directly if they be able to work. If all else fails Ill just go back to my conversion.
