    Has anyone converted their headlights from the sealed beams to these?

    Were they actually brighter?

    I did on my Ford Aerostar. Later I did hella H4 conversion (EU standard).

    European headlamps are better US headlamps, becouse they are brighter and more light on right side of road to see sholder, road signs.

    I recomend Hella Headlamps conversion to all International owners

    ive got the singles but converted the sealed beams to the crystal ones, its a big difference not to mention it looks better...i bought a set off of ebay and were just as good as the up ones i have now, and cheeper....next upgrade is a set of HID bulbs
     
    Ken Thanks this.
  8. I've also heard that KW's may require some "modification" for these or other reflector optic housings to fit. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks

    Geez... do we really need lights that blind oncoming drivers even more than they do now?

    I have the HID's and absolutely love them best light I could have ever put on the truck. It does require modification to fit the low beams in the stock housing by cutting the backside off the housing and my kit included a new deeper cover to house the ballast and extra wiring.

    I also have 9" HID driving lights and could not ever drive with a halogen driving light ever again. Both my headlight and driving light setup is DOT legal.

    If I'm driving at night it usually means that I'm working on a forest fire.. Not too many people to blind out there..

    But thanks for the concern..
