Default Bosch H4 conversion kit

FM is having a group buy on these, just wondering if anyone has them, and their thoughts. A pair for $50 seems like even a small improvement would be worth it.

You guys are years late, I've had mine for 3 years now, there great buy some HID's stick them in there and you'll never complain about lighting again. I like my 8,000k nice blueish look, 6,000k are the whiter look.

they have a different reflector pattern and better bulbs. they output light better, and you can see better at night. you can put in purple h4 bulb if you'd like.

With the amount of interest we've had in this in the past 20 hours, we'll probably be able to get the minimum fairly comfortably. But just to make sure, tell your friends with Jeeps, old VWs and other cars with 7" round lights!

Smoking price on these lights. I just joined the FM group buy, I am sooo tired of my no name low profile lights that don't light up crap.

If I didn't already have a set of Hella's I'd be all over it. For sure worth $50. Light is put on the road SO much better and has a very sharp cut-off similar to HID's. At least the Hella's do, I suppose the Bosch are similar. I'm running 100W Hella bulbs and I have more light available than some HID setups I have seen.

They don't blind unless your beam is crap. With the e-code the light goes on the road, so I've never had a high beam flash. With the cut off being so sharp, you either get light or you don't. Glare is very very minimal, as opposed to a lot of HID's I see (especially after market with people using stock reflectors/lenses) that look like welding arcs coming at you. I had one guy come at me one night with those really blue HID's in a poorly executed install on a tall truck. I literally had to come to a near stop in the middle of the road, I couldn't see ****. I was ready to pull a u-turn and chase him down, but I kept my cool. I could literally see his lights coming 30 seconds before I actually saw him. I was at the foot of a 1/2 mile long up hill stretch and he was around a 40 degree turn at the top, and probably also about 1/4-1/2 mile down another straight away. ******* light ricers. I curse them all!
