Talking Check out my brand new HID lights

These lights are so easy to install. Took me only 20 minutes (including 5+ minutes of drooling).

The wiring is long enough for me to place it half way across the engine bay and I did not have to do any special connection to the battery or anywhere.

Yummy.......

Sorry for the crappy pictures

Do you have any problems aiming the headlights or getting a nice concentrated beam with the HID?

To be safe, I adjusted the headlight by aiming downward more with the phillip screw. However, based on the manufacturer's claim the glare shield should've take care of any "unwanted police attention".

The manufacturer also told me that it is more of a wide illumination than a concentrated Phillips/Osram style which has poor illumination on the sides and further away.

Hope this answers your question.

Smile Manufacturer of My HID's

Woops, I never mention what brand was my HID. It's McCulloch, www.mccullochhid.com I-club store has it for sale. I bought it for the warranty and after hearing too many K2 nightmares.

hm... that's H4 right?
As I've heard you won't be able to use high beam with those, is that correct, because I dream of HIDs...but don't want to give up high beam either

Default Relay & Night Images

what you see from the image is what is needed for the install. There is no need to buy any special relays or anything, except changing the headlight fuse to 20A. Our? stock Impreza has 15A fuse.

If you visit their website, you see there are only 2 connections: one to the power and one to the bulb. That's it!!! easy. It can't get any easier, I think.

I'm a bad photographer. Please excuse the crappy images. I'll try to stop by a deserted area and take a better picture.

If you want to post multiple pictures you have to have them online and click "IMG" above in the menu, or use the html code [img][/img], and you put the iternet address of your image in between the [..][..] deals.

A good, free place to have images hosted is www.boomspeed.com It's super easy and they do a good job... and it's free!!!! (no junk mail) Check it out.

BTW, the HID looks good. I'm considering a kit myself, and I really like how the McCulloch installs so easily, and I like the seperate ballast and igniter. It looks like they have a high-quality product.

Daffy- How do they look in person...do they have a blue tint? Kind of hard to tell in the pics. Would you say they look like any manufacturer's stock HID's(lexus, benz,etc..)

The colour looks really like the silver star bulb. Can you post a pic that is from the drive's point og view at night?

How come McCulloch kit does not have the relay?

Default Answers to Questions

They are very blue during the start up and then turn to white. However, when you compare it with stock HID, it's a little more blue. The McCulloch website has a motorcycle image that looks just like mine during start up (my car's in there too :P). I was at the Arcadia I-club meeting last Sunday and one guy has a halogen PIAA superwhite and when we compared each other's headlights, his is just yellow.... (oops, sorry Mark)

I don't know why it doesn't need a relay but the guys who sells them made this as a selling point and I was sold on the simplicity of the installation and the warranty. All I know is: the less I need to do, the less potential problem it has.

I don't want to sound like a snob, but the questions you guys are asking can be answered on their website, www.mccullochhid.com

I'm gonna try to get a driver's side picture ASAP.

Smile No High Beam

No high beam from the McCulloch HID. There are other kits that have high beam but they cost a few hundred more. I can live without it. If I really want to get it, I rather spend money on another fog light. That's just me

Smile Glare shield

Glare shield definitely helps. Especially the top cover because it also emits light through the top. Any unwanted lighting is a flaw in the conversion = grandma/***** drivers complaint = police attention.

I don't know if you can make your own shield. Don't wanna mess with $200 item.
