They are REAL Bright, they can see you! day or night. I live in the woods in Maine with many moose and deer, Low beam are straight and far and high beam spreads the patern and you can see sides and all. I had BMWs with HID but these are brighter. The picture would show a real bright ass light, there is cheaper out there but Philips German made are rated as top of the line. Good luck deciding.

I got the Phillips kid, there is plenty of room in the RG. Better warranty and durability.

And before you consider the Daymakers... give Holeshot a try... HD has enough money, but they could care less if youre happy or not.
There doesn't appear to be anything that I could have plugged in backwards. Clips and one way fasteners on all pieces. No, there is no shield on the bulb. It's just a HID bulb for the low beam and a halogen for the high beam. Check out the link to the kit I posted to take a closer look. I'lll try the headlight aim adjustment when I have time again.

Thanks

The HD LEDs are nice and very effective but if one of the LEDs burn there is no replacement for one LED light, you have to buy the hole setup again an are expensive (by my local HD dealer). The HIDs are replaceable and more affordable. Good luck
thanks .

I always use the HID for highbeam and the highbeam setting of the switch for low beam. I also have the driving lights set up so they are on with the HIDs. If someone ever claims that they didn't see me, I would chase their seeing eye dog away.
