My wife's previous car (Lincoln mark VIII) had HID bulbs in a standard style reflector. No sucko projector. For high beam, it illuminated additional incandescent lighting. It worked well. The model year prior was all incandescent, and about as bright as one or two candles from what I hear.Her current car is a 2013 Mustang. It has HID projectors. I'm not impressed. They have a mechanical hi/low shield in them. They could use a touch more wattage, (and I likely should spend some time tweaking the alignment) They have an extreme cutoff. As in, if you come over a hilltop, you can tell that the low beam lights up people faces and blinds people.I have HID addons in my Stelvio and my EV. I like them a LOT. I plan to keep them. On low beam, they do not blind oncoming traffic (I have check with people numerous times). The cutoff is a bit muted, as in, coming up over a hilltop, low beam does not light up the faces in the oncoming cars like the projectors in the wife's car.But, I did have one style of addon HID bulb in my EV that was crap. That bulb design was garbage. The ones I use now I highly recommend.
Wayne, are your "addons" the element replacements for the H4 halogen, or are you talking about add-on aux lights? I suspect the low beam cutoff difference is that the Mustang has the convex round objective lens (no faceting) and the Stelvio has a traditional, faceted lens.
Thanks for the link to the HID forum. ;-TI'm thinking the cutoff gate could be modified if it interfered with cornering. I do plan to have two on the trike, placed in fairing lowers somewhere near the valve covers, maybe. Since the trike doesn't lean much I don't think the cutoff will be a problem.
What are the dimensions of the retro-unit you shelved, what is the weight, and what does it have to attach to a mount? You said it's an H4. Do you mean it uses an H4-base bulb, or that it fits in the space of a traditional H4 headlight assembly?
