Nice necro, spambot. People who attempt to convert non-HID lamps to HID and those who use halogens with filtered lenses (ghetto) are fucking idiots.

Go fist yourself, shitstain.

The tint on the vinyl is extremely subtle, it protects the plastic and it looks better than stock.

My A6 did not have HIDs but it did have projector lenses. I added some bulbs and ballast and was good to go. Light output is awesome and none of the friends I've drive behind have complained.

*IF* you're going to convert to HIDs, you must have projector lenses. Otherwise you're 1) wasting a lot of light output, 2) annoying the shit out of everyone around you and 3) blinding yourself in fog, rain and snow.

I was talking about your choice of bulb, you moron. Blue filter on a halogen bulb = less light output.

Of course lamps with projector lenses are the exception. Most of the drivers that attempt to upgrade non-HID lamps to HID don't have projectors though.

Although halogen bulb based projectors are better than standard reflector housings, they're still not as good as projectors designed for HID's - the two bulbs are still physically different and can throw light in a different direction.

Like Viperoni said, you're doing it wrong. But I'll take it one step further than him, you have to use projector housings designed for the specific model number bulb you are using, otherwise you are not properly reflecting the light. On top of that, it's still federally illegal. You cannot even take a base model car that has HID's as an option, but didn't come with them from the factory, and add the factory optional lights, even if you use a 100% OEM setup. But, I'm not stopping you from breaking the law - just informing you of it.
