HID???Oxidized???

I want to get HID or XENON bulbs or whatever they are called
but I have some weird headlights
they are oxidized but not too badly
a set installed will be $60
should I do it
considering that my car is completely modded and I just want that final touch

its against UV rays, and this seems to be UV damage from what I have heard

I think you mean just installing a new set of higher output bulbs (super white...sylvania silverstars...etc...). True HID's and Xenon conversions will run you $400+.

yea the little bulbs
not the whole housing with it
i believe true XENON headlights run on gas
I just want that crisp clean light because i cant see 2 feet ahead of me hwen i drive at night with these

I put Sylvania Silverstars in both of my cars and it improved over the standard beam drastically.

i went to my mechanic and he said that the bulbs are 55 watts nad the socket is 45
so the wiring melts

Maybe it's not so much the bulbs but rather the OXIDATION:doh:!!!!! Is the Oxidation on the outside or inside the headlight housing. I got water in one of my headlights and when it evaporated, it left a nasty residue on the inside of the glass. I baked it to get the glass seperated from the housing, then cleaned it, then put it back together. It wasn't difficult at all. :2cents:
