Default Headlight upgrade

G'day all,

My headlights are looking a bit sad and I have done the whole cleaning and sanding etc... Of the lenses.
I a, looking to completely upgrade them and make them better, I am wondering if anyone has done this and what you did?

I was looking at the angel eyes however it appears that they may only be for looks judging by people's comments in other threads?

Any help would be greatly appreciatted.

Thanks in advance

The problem is that the halogen projectors in the Angel Eye headlights are junk. In terms of performance they are a giant leap backwards.

The best upgrade is to change the bulbs to Philips X-treme Vision. Not the Blue, Crystal or Diamond Vision bulbs- these actually reduce the light output.

If you're dead set on the Angel Eye type lights then the next option is to have the projectors replaced with either OEM halogen ones or purpose designed HID projectors.

Here's a wall shot of the standard Angel Eye projector output:



This is the difference with a HID projector:


With the cost of the headlights it isn't a cheap option and technically doesn't meet the ADRs (no washers or self levelling). Much better than glaring all and sundry with a PnP kit though.
