My alternative

Not HID, but something similar. I got these 7' sealed beam replacement projector headlights with a halo ring for AU$150 a pair. I think they use a H$ bulb. They will fit into a standard US Spec headlight housing:-






Looks like you've got the gas cooker on around your light

Cheers

Steve

I spoke to the guy that's selling these as I was interested in buying these myself and the problem with those lights is that there is no provision for Hi-beam and for a beetle renders these useless unfortunately.......
have you got them as yet? does it look like you can make them work for Hi-beam??
Cheers

Very interesting! It doesn't say whether they are 'E' marked (for use in UK or Europe), which will be necessary to stop Sgt Plod getting too anxious. most HID conversions are 'for off road use only'

Hi

I just bought some 911 headlights from a company in the UK http://www.design911.co.uk, I also bought a HID conversion from them that looks promising.

Hi

My 911 headlights just arrived from the UK, I also ordered a Xenon kit.

I've temporarily given up on adapting the Hella modules that I have.

I'd be interested in seeing that too Steve. Looks like it's going to be a good set-up.

Does anyone know if the Airkewld HID kit provides for both high and low beams?

Hi

I can do that, just need a bit of time to do a proper test. Might even do a youtube video.

I found these a while ago, and have been thinking about trying a set once I've got a little more money set back. Thought maybe you guys would be interested.

There are a few different HID options in the dropdown menu

Looks good but for us non sealed beam pre67 headlight owners it wouldn't work.

I've got something like these as standard Golf (Rabbit) conversions for clear lens applications. I have wired the main and dip together so that I get a total of 115W of output per lamp on main beam that with the 50% extra output from the bulbs is equivalent to 172W! (90W/82.5W) each side.

I see that the HID conversion is also advertised but as I said earlier most conversions are 'for off road use only' in Europe as our Regs require a tight pattern control on the HIDs that the conversions cannot guaranttee especially with older glass patterned lenses.
