looks nice, but this should belong in the Appearance / Cosmetic forum.

best thing about it is I've been around here longer than he has... I just don't want to consider a lighting setup like this only for appearance/cosmetic because that's not why I did it in the first place sorry I posted here anyway

oh and by the way the tech is the same as every other HID setup in an EK Civic or any other car for that matter...

I'm finally going to have to agree with the so called "helper". There is no tech behind these post so why post it in here. You didn't even say what you did or how you did whatever. Just if they look good. So once again I say, "Who Cares."

Here's the beam pattern shots, although kinda shitty, I bent the shields of the projectors to give the cutoff a more blueish appearance instead of the ugly mustard yellow the normal A6 projectors put out. That was a pretty simple process which I'll explain briefly for the sake of not getting bitched at

Just bend the shields with your fingers or a pair of pliers... for the bixenon shield as in this case you must bend both the stationary shield and the moving part or the headlights will not switch to highs as the shield will sieze up. The beam pattern needs adjusted but I forgot my long screwdriver at home and I'm at my apartment now so... until next time...

by the way the wall is approx. 35 to 40 feet from the car and there's a slight ridge in the parking lot blocking some of the roadway illumination creating the dark spot after the first set of parking spots.

cheers
