Okay so forget everything I've been ranting. I admit I'm an idiot. My battery died so instead of just getting a jump from my neighbor..I spent the last 4 days tearing my engine and fuse box apart trying to find a complex solution...anyway...the wiring on the Ballasts and ZKW was fine....the ZKWs work fine....Thanks Umnitza.
So my neighbor came over tonight to check my alternator and he figured that we'd jump the battery first just to get it outta the way...of course all the power and lights came back on in my car the minute I turned the key....
Anyway the HIDs are nice...but I drove around the block and parked to look at them from the distance to see if I needed to adjust anything and I noticed a few problems with the ZKWs (well potential problems):
1) The driver's side headlights were fogging up already?
used, It hasn't rained, or anything and I've only driven the car a few yards and for a minute or so. Anyway it went away since then and did not return. Why would $700 ZKWs fog in dry cool weather (40 degrees out)? and what am I to expect when it actually rains?
2) Also the driver's light (again) seems to be tilted about 20-30% above the flat line of the hood. So when I pull up behind other drivers at the red light. My HID on that side floods their cabin with white light. I mean I could see the back of this one guys head in such details. Anyway can projector HIDs be adjusted like reflectors? If so how? Ididnt see anything in the back of the low beam housing.
3) The HIDs are too white white (like my old silverstars)..I thought the 6000k luminosity was bluish white side. I got the 6000 k. But someone on an HID forum said the 6000 k plus HID lights will be white for the first few times its on and then it will become bluer and bluer over the first few weeks of driving. Is this true? Also I thought the lights were very bright but not much brighter than my old silverstars....even though the HID light output (in terms of distance from the front of the car outwards) is phenomenal the brightness seems average and on par wih silverstars....see pictures...Am I wrong here?
Anyway...thanks again Umnitza...I love the lights....just ship them with paperwork next time...enjoy the pictures....
