Hibeam and Low beams

Well anyways, when i installed the JDM 1 piece a while back. I only installed the 8k hid lows and didn't bother with the hi beam since I couldn't figure out the wiring for the H1 bulb. But anyways, now I'm thinking if I should go with 3k Hid for the hi beam and if there is a way to force the light so it works somewhat like a fog light. If your having a hard time grasping what I'm trying to explain. let me know otherwise, my question is. Is there a way to adjust the high beam so it's not "High" beam but lower than regular headlight? thanks.

Re: Hibeam and Low beams

No not really, But you could try just the opposite. using the low beam to act as a Fog light deaming your high beam as a midway between high and low. This would cause your low beam to look way low in the area your fog light should be directed. Although you could also get normal fog lights and install them keeping your high and low beams for their respectful uses...

Re: Hibeam and Low beams

lmao thats my exact setup: 8K HID lows and 3K hi's





but to answer your question, no, i don't believe thats possible.
althoooo, keep in mind, the H4's are originally a dual-filament bulb, meaning one filament is low, and the other is a city (fog) light. the newest HID kit that i just received actually was this H4 hi/lo setup, but i ditched it cuz i couldn't figure out the wiring.

Re: Hibeam and Low beams

k good to know..btw how bright is that 3k high beam of yours? and I would get fogs if I can find them below 150...I just dont feel like paying more than 150 for fogs that I will use every once in a while.

Re: Hibeam and Low beams

What your asking for is what I would like to do as well..either go with a just low beam for my outside lights and then do a city/daytime running light for the inner as ya'll were talking about. Installing Hids can be very easy but doing a hi/low kit is completely different. Not realy hard but easily confusing. Anyone know of a DIY for the JDM intending wiring pattern on the JDM headlights?

it sucks, but i still have never even aligned my headlights, even tho i've had 'em about 3-4 years now i think my lights are pointed directly down, like 2 feet in front of my car lmao

are you asking how to wire the JDM heads to the stock harness?
