Question High beam HID reccomendations for 04 LT?

I have a CQ low beam on now but it is so bright that when I go to high beam I can't even tell. So I want to add a high beam. Any suggestions. I have a relay setup now that takes power for all my extras including my HID directly from the battery and I use a relay to shut it all down at start-up.

Sometimes you can get so fixated on the fact that you are right that you lose sight of the reality that it doesn't matter.

Re: High beam HID reccomendations for 04 LT?

Jason, I had both high and low beams converted to HID on my 03 LT and loved it. I also had a set of PIAA 1100x under the cowls for conspicuity that were slaved to the low beam, and another set under the mirrors slaved to the high beam (I flash the high beams when lane splitting here in California).
I loved the brightness of the HID high beam!
On my 05 I have the Ducati Design dual low beam, which I converted to HID, plus a set of PIAA 1100x under the cowls. So far I left the high beam stock as the dual HID low beams provide a lot of light...
