Borrego HIDs are in!

Well kinda. I spent last night putting them in. Took awhile because it is hard to get to the headlight and hook the wiring up because it is such a small spot to work with your hands. They looked great but the bulb on the passenger side flickers constantly. So after a lot of hard work and initial enthusiam I was met with disappointment. I am going to return the bulbs for some new ones. I hope I can have the HID project finally done early next week.

Btw, I went with a 6,000K bulb from Xentec

Thank you. It looks good. I just gotta send the bulb back and get a new one. Hopefully they will be "officially" in the Borrego by mid next week

I ordered 6K HIDs with a slim ballast. Hopefully they will be here Friday or Saturday. I put the 10K on my grandma's Fusion and she loves them. Yay for HIDs. :cool:
Grandma get any tickets yet? 10K must be pretty purplish? I'd be highbeaming her every time she'd drive by..

I hope you will not got any further than 6k K which is already pretty bluish...
Of course, your choice, but you would be ticketed.

As for flicker - swap ballasts, change location of ballast. These two things will narrow down the problem.
