HID question...

alright. so i just got an 07 2.4L SS and my headlights arent doin it. I really would love to buy some HID's but i am a little confused on how its going to work. Not necessarily on hooking them up, but what to put them in. I've searched for an hour or so and cant find a definite answer. Will the work and put out in the stockers or will it work better with the ebay halos or should i just forget about HID's altogether? Thank you

Thumbs up

If you want to buy the Halos instead of paying over 300$ on ebay I suggest you go see this GB on Cobalt SS.net ( no spaces ). You will see it on the front page.


And I was wondering the same questions as you. Either go with HID or Halos.. Still thinking about it.

well i was more wondering is it ok to put HID's in the stock headlights or would it be better to put them in the halo projectors or are both situations a bad idea. The only concern in my mind is aiming, i dont want to blind people, and since the halos have projectors they might have a good cutoff so this doesnt happen, so if anyone has experience with HID's in the stockers or halos and can help id appreciate it.

and arent those shown on cobaltss. net the same as the ebay ones? and if im not mistaken the ebay halos only cost 200...

I have 7k Nokya Arctic blues in mine. No problems with aiming, blinding people, and they look cool as hell. Blue lights on a yellow car, I thought it would clash, but it looks good. I will try to post a pic.

Heres a pic, the camera doesnt do justice for the color.

any wall shots? basically what im looking for is like if i get HID's and aim them at a wall, i want that crisp cut-off on the wall, kind of like you see on acuras and what not. do the stockers or halo projectors give that kind of result or is the light aimed everywhere?

here ya go, it doesnt have a definite cutoff like projectors will have, but i love them. Night driving is a pleasure, because it illuminates the signs as well.

Nice, how much did it cost you to change those lights ? I still the old stock ones and they are doing much now in the dark. Tired of running on the high beams

They are only like 28 dollars a set! I got them at AutoZone where I work. Hang on a min and I will get a part number for you.
