Hid Xenon Lights

Question

The previous owner on the my vehicle had fitted HID Xenon lights using the old lamp reflectors.

My previous vehicle had the normal lights and to me they seemed to appear brighter at night with greater night visibilty.

My guess is that the old reflectors do not match up with the HID Xenon lights.

Can anyone suggest a HID Xenon expert that I can go to so as to get this rectified?

HIDs are should be used on headlights which are designed for HIDs :).Some normal reflectors would scatter it everywhere and it will make the lights look dimmer.Also check whether the Lights are adjusted Properly and also how many Kelvins are your HIDs?

are you sure the owner fitted HID xenons?because there are blue bulbs which gives a white light(similar to xenons) which is quite low comparing to normal halogens

Those blue colour halogen bulbs emit less light due to their blue colour tint (55/60w) ones

ok when you put the light on light beam getting brighter of it stay that way ?

any way you can brighten the light beam by cleaning headlamp. check the hid unit wires are fit correctly. :)

Some cars with projectors come with Halogens and some come with HIDs on non projector Housing. But I think they are designed for HIDs.

You are correct :).But it works best on Projector headlamps

Thanks guys for your responses.

I can see a pair of Promota V61 HID Standard Balasts fitted. Not sure how many Kelvins these lights are but I was able to get the lights adjusted. I don't think that the reflectors are Xenon types. I need to find a place that can help me out. If possible text details to 0777736701. Thanks

Finding projector light housing might be a tough thing if a general google search doesn't show you anything for your vehicle. There are a lot of arguments on the web and here in AL before about this. I will not worry about the arguments too much if I were you. I think it's a adjustment thing and you'll be fine after that.

ok my two cents on this.. i installed an HID kit on my Astina. and the light output was great.. since its a low car i couldnt see jack with the normal halogens.. 6000K was my kelvin rate..

for you if the cleaing and adjusting dont help.. i sugggest go for the 4000K golden color HID.. by far they are give the best light output..

i have to agree with JohnGalt because when i first fitted the hid unit i got a low illumination on the road after head light adjustment it's was give more illumination on road and after using it some time light got more brighter.

and it takes some time to reach it color temperature. :)

Thank you all for your invaluable advice.

How can I verify the colour temperature of my unit?

most of the time theres a tag in the wires indicating the temperature

Could someone give me a fair idea of the price of a HID conversion kit? Thought of changing mine too, maybe to something around 4000k.

Word on the street is that anything above 6000k is illegal. But you know, this is Siri Lanka so you might get away with 8000k too. Definitely not 10000k and above though.

May I ask why you guys opt for HIDs instead of normal ones? Aren't the stock ones powerful enough?
