Any Integra that old will have major lens problems unless the lamps are brand new, or a plain miracle occurred. I'd recommend against the HIR2 for the low beam for that reason alone-- it'll really be glare for everyone else on the road. As far as the high beam, you could do the HIR1, but with the "cataracts" it's not going to be much of an improvement for the driver.Subject says all, any reason I shouldn't do the HIR conversion on my roommate's Camry? What about a 1998 Integra?
Ah, I see what you mean now. So I should look at the car and try it ONLY if it has a glare shield in front of the bulb, then?
I found reference to putting H11s in place of H8s, which are used in the fog lights of my E92 335i. Also worthwhile? I'm assuming that going to H9s would be inadvisable in a fog light.
Even BMW? (I kid!)Dangerous levels of glare regardless of lamp aim, and I can't think of any H8 fog lamps that will withstand the extra heat of an H11 or H9 bulb.
Yes, the H9 is an excellent upgrade for the Camry's low beams.So projector lamps = that's good for the Camry low beams then?
As for the Bimmer fogs, I just used them for the first time in ages the other night; 99% of the time they are off much like the rear fog which was actually the first thing I modded when I got the car (it's easy, just buy the Euro headlight switch - the bulbs etc. are already in place as they are used as the "adaptive" brake lights (only come on under hard braking) I was actually thinking of doing an amber lens mod which prompted the question about moving up to the H11s, to make up for the light lost by doing so. I'm just old school enough that I feel more comfortable with amber fog lights, even though all research shows yadda yadda yadda that white is really just as good. But I obviously don't want to do this if someone's already done it and has determined that it'll melt my lights etc.
did BMW resist the trend to just slap any lights down in the lower fascia (or worse yet, up high like VW has done a few times) and call them "fog lights"?
