An HID lens and reflector works differently than a lens and reflector for halogen bulbs, so if you just buy a HID bulb kit, you usually have issues with glaring oncoming traffic, and a poor light pattern. The complete lens and reflector assembly really should be changed too.what do you mean by glare with the H.I.D's?
The light pattern won't change unless you change the reflector or lens. i agree that it is just pretty much a color change, but I found that was enough to make it worthwhile, as I found the stock ones to be very yellow and ineffective.iit definitely looks brighter, because the light output is not as yellow, but the actual pattern of light was identical to the stock bulbs, i wouldnt spend money on them again
I agree with Phil, Silverstars may be just a color change, but they helped
However, you might want to save the money and go Delta.
I just dropped in a set of Delta replacement lights and for $100, they really made a big difference.
Actual glass headlights instead of plastic, flat instead of domed makes it easier to get my grill out with a winch/bumper in the way and H4 bulbs have a lot more bulb options than the H13 stockers
The change in output and usable light placement is remarkable.
+2. I have the CIBIE lights from Daniel Stern. I LOVED my H4 bulbs I got, until I found out they have an extremely short life. BOTH of mine failed within a couple of days of each other (how do the design THAT to happen????), and the bulbs were only a year old. I replaced the bulbs with Silverstars, not as bright as the 85 watt H4 bulbs were, but cheaper, and more widely available.
