Are you guys talking about these?


They don't use the black areas for reflection, those are projection lenses in the middle, and if you aim them right, they work fine... this is what I have read from other sites that use similar-sized popup lights.

Generally yes, the projector lense is what should project the light, however the black housing does diminish the lighting.  I used a set on my corolla that were similar (not 6x7's of course, custom fit composites, but same design from ebay) and literally my factory lights were much brighter with the same bulb.

yeah the black innards ones fail, they dont make the black reflective enough.  I would only suggest black lights for corners and tails on cars where you can buy em that way.

I wish HID's had never been invented.  They don't work worth a shit (the wrong frequency of light for night vision), don't last near as long, annoy everyone coming towards you and do not even look cool.  But that is just me...

When I get around to completing the fixed headlight swap on mine, I will post up some pics and maybe sell a few sets to folks.  Gonna be da shizzle boyeee.

I can Vouch, the Yellow Lensed Headlamps do attract the fuzz. Those you sold got me more attention than i liked. I ended up going back to my old sealed beams for legality reasons: Headlamps may only be white in colour, Fog Lamps may only Be Yellow in Colour, and must only be on in conjunction with low beams...(this from the state that requires you to keep a loaded "scattergun" in your carriage at all times)
 Though i do wish i could get some Yellow Lenses for my Bosch Lights the seemed to do better in the rain/sleet than the pencil beamed white ones, course a yellow set is only 50$ on ebay. (that and the white ones make my headlamps look dim by comparison, even on bright)


Here is an Awful looking way to get projectors, though these look to be air ducting (for what purpose). Maybe it could use some integra lights?

My guess is: Track car, he/she is trying to get as much cool air to the engine, etc..

HID's burn blue so the yellow would help cut the blue for sure. although I think most states have laws covering the legal color of all the lights on your car.  Texas frowns on the yellow headlights, Fogs are OK.  Recently seen some idiot running around with blue covers on his headlights.  I do not mean blue tint, but rather "Cop Light-Bar Blue".  Man he must have fun, spose all the cops in the neighborhood have his number.

This is a long read (for some) but very informative:

Jason

How many Lumens do the 4000K put out vs the 14000K?  and where is that light being put?

I have not seen many (read: none) yellow range HID's in my neighborhood, just a bunch of blindingly blue posers.  We should just get rid of this fad.  I have driven a couple of OEM HID's in the last year or so and I was not impressed with the visibility at all and those were OEM set-ups.  Can't even imagine aftermarket hack-jobs.  Several years ago I was looking at converting my Datsun 510 with the BMW Ellipsoids, but after a little reading, I could not justify the extra cost and poor function.
