Took some pics of my gen 4 having just HID kit in it... now its not that huge light thats showing.. instead it looks like it has a thin line just like a retrofit but more light lighting in the top area.. I don't see any glare but not 100% sure.. it's off my car right now and back to H4 bulbs... just wanted some comments on them... i'm doing a retrofit in summer hopefully(finding projectors)

Up against my H4 bulb hahaha
You can see that theres not much lighting on top of that line right afterwards...




and then here's some pics of the accident which was mention in a few post ago... I would put it there but since I made another topic for this... might as well add it here..

This is up close and personal with the accident....


Far away shot... basically I was trying to see how it will look if on coming traffic look at my car...



let me know guys!

Thanks

no the muffler was given to me from a friend.. i never put it on.. cuz I dont like having such a ricer muffler lol... just been there for almost a year...

also how do you guys tell whether its glaring on towards the coming traffic or not?? Like when I look at it from the front at night time maybe a ft away... it's just bright but not to the point where my eyes are closing or wanting to close...

I believe people look at the cutoff points at various distances, such as 3 meters, 25 meters, what have you.

If it is a clean straight and low cutoff point without spots or fuzziness above, then that is acceptable.

If you see splotches or scattered light above the rest, that usually is an indication that glare will be projected onto oncoming traffic

is it best to check that out during nighttime or daytime could also be possible?

Do what ELL said. Drive up to a wall and make sure you're facing it (at night). Park the car about 20 feet or so away and make sure that the beam pattern is straight and that there's no light scatter. If it's pointed too high, just adjust the headlight housing so that it won't be shining into oncoming traffic.
