Yet Another Camaross HID Install

6000k HIDs. The first pic was in bright sunlight. The sun was angled off to the side facing the car. The second one was taken in the garage.

Either that or just a bad picture. Personally I find those too bright. When your main HID's are turned on, your headlights will like a messy ball of light.

You are right it is the picture. I have yet to see someone capture it correctly. In sunlight it is definitely not too bright.

This is why I went with a higher temp bulb, in my case 12000K. The higher the temp, the lower the light output. When my main HIDs are on, the lines of the halos are still 100% noticeable.

Thanks for the pics msile!!

I think Sard captured the HID angels the best. These are the closest thing ive seen to how they appear in real life. Yes the inner is slightly more bright but not nearly how others think. These are 6000k some pics in direct sunlight
