Projector Headlights with HID

Hey everyone, I'd thought I'd share a picture of my headlights with HID's. They are the Eagle headlights with DRL I bought off eBay and an HID kit with 4300K. I posted about the headlights in a separate thread with subject "Projector headlights". Let me know what you all think.

Hello,
Just got 2014 limited and would like to upgrade to hid. Were the headlight housings difficult to remove after removing the 3 bolts on top?
thanks

No they are not really hard to remove. You just remove the 3 bolts, detach the connection to the headlight. Then just wiggle them out. They have 2 notches underneath that lock into grooves. You might have to tug a little hard, but don't worry you won't break anything. The tricky part is putting them back in. Once you position it in the car you have to push forward a little to get it to lock back in place. When you get one headlight out, look at the bottom of it and you will see the notches on the headlight and you will know what I am talking about.

Hope this helps. Anymore questions just ask.

I have been interested in these headlights for a while now. I'm planning on purchasing the same lights but with a clear reflector. It definitely makes the car even more of a head-turner.

Do the drl's stay on at all times?

I am not sure about the Limited Elantra. On my switch that turns on my lights I have Off ,DRL, and lights. If I turn them to DRL the parking lights and DRLs come on. They are like your high beams that act as DRL on the regular halogen housing. I got the black housing to match with the trim on my vehicle. I have Harbor Grey Metallic. Make sure you adjust them correctly so the lights will perform correctly. When you get them they will be way off to avoid blinding people. Any more questions just ask.

I like how they look like they could be OEM's! I'd like to see what they look like with the drl's on in the daytime.. Can you post a picture if you get a chance? Also, does the projector produce a High/Low beam or does the reflective housing still produce the High-beam?

Sure, I will try to get a picture today and post it tonight. It's cloudy today so perfect time to get a good day time picture. The projector produces only the low beam and the halogen in the middle still produces the high beam. They changed the bulb type for the low beam to H7 as the highs are still H1. If you don't get HIDs right away and decide to wait, get Phillips Xtreme Vision for them, They are the brightest and safest bulbs I could find until I finally switched to HIDs. Get 5000k for HIDs if you want the brightest beam. Going above 6000k and you will loose brightness.

Drl

I tried to get a good picture but it's bright outside. It is noticeable when driving down the road. I don't use them all the time because it is sunny down here.

Do these headlights have horizontal aiming? If so, where is the place to adjust them?

I just noticed that my headlights look kinda like this:


It was crazy how far down these headlights were adjusted when I first got them. It was like they pointed 3ft in front of the car.

The lights have cone holes on them, you use a Phillips screwdriver to adjust them. Let me know if you need instructions on adjusting them. it is very easy and can be done using a white wall.
