    I'm in the US and looking for a HID or Xenon headlight replacement that does not require me to cut the existing headlight reflectors. I would prefer to purchase a complete headlight system that is a direct bolt in replacement and put my OEM headlights on the shelf in my garage in case I ever needed to change back. I've looked on line but can't find a solution. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
     
  2. THis is a difficult one as there are separate bulbs for high / low beam.
    I have installed HIDS to both, and if im not using high beem for about 5 mins or longer, the high beam take a few seconds to ignite to full light.

    I have bought a hid kit from hid direct uk. A straight plug and play no cutting required. Best money I have ever spent

    I have 100w in my main beam as I don't really use now I have hid. But useful for flashing other drivers or giving them full beam when their being [email protected]

    LED bulbs are now coming on the market for reasonable prices. Brighter than Zenon/Halogen, as bright as HID's without the heat and no ballasts to fit. Plus the life expectancy is something like 50000 hrs and you get instant full power lighting with no warmup period as in HID's. Thinking of trying a set on the bike and if they're as good as advertised, might try some in the LC.

    You need serious lights on a ZZR1400 :whistle:.

    (As I recall, one with a 'Power Commander' chip achieved 204 mph at Bruntingthorpe Airfield :shock:).

    BMW 'GS' man myself :icon-cool:.
