HID install

Here's a few pics of the new HID system in our escape. probably should have waited till it was darker, but it is noticable over the stock yellow colour. the first pic is just the DRL's on
next is lo beam
and finally hi beam
fogs to be put on tomorrow.




forgot to mention that these are the 4300 k version

thanx Blair. what's the diff in the k number. are 6000's brighter than 4300 or is the bigger # less bright? got 4300 for the fogs too.

i think 4300k is the brightest/whitest light, and you get bluer to purple as you go to 6000-8000-10000k
the first pic i can tell was taken soon as lights were turned on as they are more blue and not fully warm yet. 2nd and 3rd pic are nice and white. my fogs look like your first pic.

They should be the same as they are driven from a separate source bypassing DRL module
