If you replace a 35w bulb with a 35w bulb then there should be no difference in heat output. If you replace a 35w bulb with a 55w bulb then you will get more heat output that could possibly damage the housing.
What makes you want to switch to 8000K? They're not as effective as the OEM bulbs, so the only reason to go 8000K would be for the look...which is quite ricer-ish, IMO.
Peak wavelength in nm = 2,897,768 / Kelvin. The peak wavelength will be the dominant color seen in objects that emit multiple wavelengths of light. The other wavelengths essentially will cancel each other out as a sea of white (ie HID bulbs). Now I'm happy.
Yes, they can be replaced without removing them or the front bumper. The black plastic covers over the radiator pull out and then you can access the back of the assemblies to get the bulbs out, but it is tight in there.
Put in some 8000k today. Its very tight. Not much skin left on my hands. Left home in the daylight. When it got dark I was almost scared to drive home. The 8000k is so blue its too dark. And gets drowned out by on coming headlights. Very disappointed , got home and had to put the OEM 4300k back in.
Its very difficult to change bulbs. The first one I let go of the metal clip after I got it off and it fell down in the headlight assembly. Almost couldn't get it back out. About 30 minutes of fishing around with a mag tool. I'm just glad I got my OEM bulbs back in. I'm probably done with that mod. One of those things that once you start , your sorry you tried.
Ive been lurking here a little bit, searched the forum and googled all over the place but havent found an answer yet. Anyone know the best paint to use to paint the front grill surrounds to match the grill color? I took my surrounds off this weekend and have been playing around with some...
im trying to find a good aerosol spray thats both durable and matching for the shaker and spoiler.
so far ive found the spraymax 2k hot rod satin black spray, its like a two stage paint in one bottle.
problem is, shipping looks to take forever and one can is like $32-37.
has anyone gotten good...
I had some smoked plex laying around so I decided to add a lip to my stock spoiler. I ordered the standard spoiler on my 2019 ScatPack Widebody instead of the bigger laid back, performance spoiler. I prefer taller spoilers but I might have gone with that one if they had better pictures of it...
