Anyone try the motorized HID lights so you have HID on your low and high beam both sides? A friend works at the local car stereo shop and has installed a few sets on some cars and says they rock. Full HID low and High. That would be Ideal with a projector beam housing i would think.

I'm working on the project now and should have a walkthrough later in the week. My birthday was yesterday and I have a lot going on over the next few days for that, so the project has suffered some setbacks for grilling out, partying and extreme go-kart racing... lol
So how did the project turn out to be? I'm planning on purchasing the same kit you pointed out. Is it genuinely plug and play? Any feedback?

It never gets to what I'd say "daylight" but it gets light at around 10 am and darkens again by 3 pm. Latest job I had was inside a building with no windows so its pitch black when I go to work, and pitch black when I leave. No wonder people here get depressed and "light therapy" is necessary for some people..

Edit: Now that I think about it, it could explain my obsession in HID lights..

Hold da phone.. you mean your kit doesnt require ANY modification? I missed that detail.. going back to your link I see this goes into a normal H7 assembly. That's pretty convenient! I'm curious to see how solid the install feels.

My idea was finding the headlight part that needs to be modified at a junkyard and keep my original untouched. I don't have any expertise neither but I have the whole winter and I like being busy with some DIY project involving the bike
