I changed from the H4 headlamps to the Hella H7 lights with Timos buckets a while ago.
Later I upgraded the harness with relays and I was really happy with the improvement over all.

Now I just got me some Philips Xtreme Power and have them now in.

Some before and after pics:

before



after:



The pics are a bit blury but they are made with the same settings. Even with the garagelights you can see the difference.
Now I'm wondering how nightdriving will be. Well I'm gonna find out this evening..

Did you use the relays so the lights get power right from the battery? I've been wanting to to do this, I don't like how they are powered through the headlight switch, and my Pass side light is always dimmer.

Yes, it improves the lightbrightness a good bit!!! You'll have about 1.5-2volts more on the bulbs!


@ltlfrari: I didn't do any writte up. Just the parts that I used:
-low profile twin headlight buckets from fiero1fan (direct bolt in)
-Hella H7 headlamps
-some inches of cables
-2 relays (for high and low beam)
-H4 and H7 sockets to fabricate a adapter harness
-some small stuff (fasteners, tape ....)
and finally the better bulbs

I was wondering, where did you find the male H4 connector? I definitely want to retain the stock connector and not clip my harness.
