Re: HID Kit

Ok i've been doing research since i've posted, you can actually goto like HIDplaza.com, and xenonking.com, and just find the fitting for the commander which is 9006. i think that should work I am about to order a pair for myself once I get them and install I will post pics and installation tips.

Hmm, they say nothing about being DOT approved. If your state has safety inspections these lights might cause problems.

Also, I wonder how well they work with the SmartBeam headlight system?

Just wondering if you got pulled over how much trouble the police could give you about them? Would they know they were not factory spec?

Let us know if the SmartBeam works ok and which kit you picked.

Re: HID Kit

well the cops in texas aren't that brilliant trust me i use to drive a rice rocket (honda prelude )
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMESE%3AIT

i know ur wondering why a commander after having that car but i just loved it the moment i saw it.

anywho i don't think the cops will be able to tell if it came factory or not cause most new vehicles do have the H.I.D. lights factory so i doubt they will question it.

and I will let everyone know if the smartbeam works once installed and which one i ordered with pics and everything.

I would think the 6000K kit would be the one that would have the best tradeoff between color and distance.

Are you going to swap both your high and low beam bulbs?
