    I was looking into H4 headlight conversions and stumbled across these projector headlights. I know a lot of the newer cars run them and they have taken off with the ricer crowd. Does anybody have any first hand experience with projector headlights? Do they work better than a regular H4 housing?

    Here

    and here

    I think these would work because my 88 has the 4 headlight setup and I believe they are 4x6 also.

    Thoughts, critisism?

    Dunno, but i wish there was a similar type of comversion for my 89's headlight setup, hell not even the Xtra-Visions are available, that sucks. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Composite headlamps probably will provide much better vision than a sealed beam.

    On my ricer (1999 Dodge Neon RT) projector lights produced less light on the normal beam. On high beam they are brighter but how long do you usually ride around with high beams on? They are expensive, and for the money, I don't think they are worth it. They look nice, but I would rather have function over form... /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
