HID Alternatives?

Are there alternatives to getting HIDs to get brighter lights? Without a proper projector housing for them, I've heard terrible things about them. I figure that if there's a company that sells high wattage bulbs (with a harness or something) that it'd be a good replacement for the stock stuff there. I drive in some dark ass Texas chainsaw-like neighborhoods, and would like brighter lights so I can actually see where I'm going.

Re: HID Alternatives?

There is the 9005 mod and also the HIR bulbs. If you do a search in the mod section you should find some info on both.

Re: HID Alternatives?

Those terrible things you heard about them may apply to other cars. It is true the projector lens on the SVX is not designed for HIDs. OTOH, I have OT's and an economy brand of HID conversion kit in two of my SVXes. I can gaurantee you won't be disappointed, or get flashed by other drivers, especially with OT's kit.

Re: HID Alternatives?

I have a couple of OTs kits as well. About $200, and worth every penney.
