Camaross305's HID Angel Installed Photos -updated with Night Shots

Hey there, just received the HID's from Camaross305. Shipping took about 2 weeks. One plug on both sides doesn't exactly fit perfectly nor click locked, but it seems it's stable enough as it is. As mentioned the biggest bitch is figuring out the orientation of the bulb to fit it into the socket and then turn it. The bulb doesn't have a snug stock fit when you lock it into place. Maybe the rubber washer isn't on correctly. I don't know, but I think it'll be fine. The results are great! They're very bright. I ordered the 6000k ones and they match perfectly with my 6000k low beams. Below are pictures at 4 pm with the sun blazing down. Everyone in SoCal knows how damn hot it is today too.

None of the photos were manipulated in post processing. Straight out of the camera. Enjoy.


The goods.


Direct sunlight, 4pm, sun is hitting the car at about a 10 o'clock angle as you can see by the shadow. I'm about 5 cars in front of the car.


Another angle, direct sunlight, low beams off.


Low beams on.


Angle shot


Car in shade. Low beams off.


Car in shade. Low beams on.

Night time shots ...


Twilight ..


Angle..


Eventually it will become a ball of light, but what can you expect.






Enjoy...Hope this helps with your decision making. One thing to keep in mind is the limited dynamic range of a camera's sensor. In real life there is a little more definition between the rings and the lowbeam.

They look pretty even when you're directly in front of them, but if you're at an angle, the inners are definitely brighter..
