Re: HID Low beam H3 or H7 and ....
So far just low. The high beam is in a BMW holder that is not designed to be taken apart.
Some where on this site is a detailed description of what has to be done to install HIDs.
Since you will have two HIDs and only use one of them, you can just order the high beam bulb if you want to install one.
We can adjust the low beam right at the dash board, not so with the high beam.
For me, while the HID throws a lot of light forward, in a tight pattern, I seemed to have a problem recognizing what was in it's light field. I think my bulb is 4.8K? SO, I had to augment the beam with a yellowish lite to fill things in, especially right in front of me.
