Yeah, that should be good. I'm not sure how well the mini-quads spread the light. Maybe you're next project should be making projectors for it haha

Miniquads sucks. They spread light no were. It'* a rectangular light. The beam just comes out straight. The way they are set into the bumpers, blocks a lot of the light that would come out on the side. Not allowing you to see the side of the roads.

I've gotten spoiled from the VW for one it has factory HIDs. IIRC 5000k.

Also when you turn the wheel so like going into a corner the head lights adjust and move the light so it'* always in front of you.

Well that sucks. My car has a light on the corner of the headlight that comes on with the signal light. Before I got my HIDs, they were pretty good, but now they look so dull. I find my 6000k'* to be very good. What temp did you get?

I went with 8000k. I burned through two sets of silverstars in the cutlass. Was never overall impressed with them.

That'* going to be getting an HID upgrade next summer.

What size are the miniquads? They have generic projectors on eBay that are 4x6" They're probably too big.. that would be a pretty cool upgrade if they stock housings don't work out real well.

Anybody know if you can adjust the fog lights on a 2004 Silverado? Mine are very high for some reason.

I'm not sure off the top of my head, but 4X6 is probably too big. If I'd had to take a close guess I'd say 2X5.
