    2003 Maxima Halo Projectors H.I.D.

    I have upgraded or downgraded my 2K3 Maxima with halo Projectors (None HID).
    I do not plan to retrofit.
    I was thinking H.ID. 6000K or 7000K.
    Will adding an HID kit help visibility at night?
    What if I choose 7000K over 6000K?

    Please help out

    Not as much as you may expect.

    Cheap projectors = Crappy light output, bad spread, unevenness.

    6k and up = not that many lumens.

    4k is OEM.
    aftermarket HID Kit = Crap. (will not last long, high failure rate, waste of money).

    Some aftermarket Kits can be crap, but some can be very good quality.
    Helios has life time warrenty and is made in Germany.

    the projectors in the ebay housing are H3 projectors, they realy are awful, they have a horible beam pattern filled with hotspots and unlit areas. adding a HID kit just makes the hot spots brighter.
    do yourself a favor, and do it right from the start...ie a retrofit . Start w/ some reading on this site, and find out what projector you want to use. lookup my writeup on cardomain (username roymac) for a idea of whats involved.

    Roy, whats up man?

    I live in N.Y.
    Do you have a set of projectors retrofitted that you want to sell?
    If you don't, the you should start because you can make good money.
    I know many people who don't or can't go through retrofitting these things.
    Can you help me out man?
