    The mod is basicly raising the beams.

    Im try to find the how to for it but I having trouble locating it at the moment.

    The other thing could be that your hid bulbs may have been changed for a higher kelvin i.e 8000k or above. These will throw out much less light.

    When looking at the hids do they look very blue or just a hint of blue but mostly bright white.

    These are my 6k 35 w hids with the light mod done.

    Going to have another look for the headlight mod

    Cheers

    Sounds like its just the raising of the headlights you need then.

    For the life of me I cannot find Duncans "How too" maybe someone can help to locate this.

    Does make a nice difference once done.

    In the meantime I will keep looking

    Nor can I. I am convinced the site search isn't working properly.

    Resorted to using google and found it straight away/

    Works for both preface and facelift lights.
