Re: HID QUESTION

They aim just like your aiming the ones you have now. I would get a car parked in front of your truck just like it would be at a drivethru or stopped behind someone at a red light. Now aim the lights down so that the line where the light stops at is just at the back seat of the car in front of you. This way you will not blind anyone. You can make adjustments over time from that starting point.

Nice thing about the retro hids is they dont have the light scattering and bleed over problems halogen setups have. It will be a defined line where the light simply stops at. So it makes aiming them a breeze.

Re: HID QUESTION

Just go as low as you can, enough so you can still see good..... otherwise you will get flashed all the time.
