XENON LIGHT UPGRADE

edited November -1 in Roadster
Hi Gang, It has been mentioned in the Fog In Lights discussion that there is a light upgrade to Xenon. Please tell us about the advantages and disadvantages, etc. I have noticed a need for improved night visibility with my Roadster which leaves me very interested in this sort of upgrade. Thank you for your help.

    Disadvantages:
    - A bit pricey (but when you see that they're replacing the entire headlight modules it's understandable)

    Advantages:
    - Triple the light output
    - HIDs are shuttered (mechanically switch low to high beams)
    - Also has separate incandescent high beams (same as current lights)
    - They have "breather" patches that should minimize the old headlight's fogging problem
    - It's no longer scary driving on a dark, wet road on a rainy night (it sure was before!)
    - Just a heck of a lot safer!

    I agree with everything Douglas3 said. This is definitely worth the upgrade.

    I also agree with what Douglas3 said. For the first time in 2 1/2 years, my wife loves to go for a drive after sundown. Before the upgrade, it was hard to get her into the Roadster if it was dark outside. The upgrade is pricey but well worth it.

    i had mine upgraded, and the difference is like night & day! Plus the new lights use less electricity!

    The stock low beams kinda sucked. I think they were fairly dim and the were pointed down far enough that it was very hard to see more than a few 100 feet. Otherwise I can only parrot what others here have said. The HID upgrade isn't cheap, but I can actually see where I'm going now. Win!

    Other than cost it's a no brainer, stock lights are dangerous, a great upgrade

    It's definitely worth it. Much better light and much safer to drive the Roadster at night now.

    I agree to everything above as well. Well worth it.
