HID's

ok i can buy a set of HID's for a good price

some questions, is it normal to need to hook the light plug in backwards for reverse polarity ? they wont work the right way but will if the plug is reversed....

second, the factory light has a bulb "hat" does this need to be remoed so it wont melt or is it ok as long as it doesnt touch the bulb ?


and any pro's cons for HID's


there a 9006 bulb and 6000 series brightness.....for a 2002 ford explorer

The "hat" you speak of is fine as long as the bulb doesn't come in contact with them.

I'm not sure i'm understanding what you mean by hooking the light plug in backwards?

HID's are awesome...only con I can think of is they are technically illegal
