Simple. You came here to see what would get you the best light output. HID projectors will definitely do that more than just slapping in a plug and play kit. Why? Because headlights that have your standard halogen reflectors cannot project the HID output like projectors can. Reflector based headlights will generally scatter your light output and will not allow you to utilize all of its performance towards the ground. It’s almost like having your high beams on all the time, but you can’t just turn it off. HID projectors will allow you to help focus all that performance straight towards the ground and giving you everything it can provide.
This depends on personal preference. But for us, as well as most people we generally deal with, want the most output we can gain from our headlights. Standard OEM specific headlights that come with HID’s only come with 4300k HID bulbs. Why? Because this will produce the maximum out of around 3400-3500 lumens. The higher in Kelvin you go, the more color you will achieve, but also sacrificing light output. So to compensate, we would generally recommend 5000-5500K HID bulbs. This seems to be more of that balance of steering away from the slight yellowish color that the 4300-4500K bulbs provide, but also not sacrificing too much output, even if that. 6000-6500K bulbs look real nice with a slight hint of blue, but you will definitely notice the decreased performance.
Most definitely. We have done LED taillight retrofits as well as fog lights and even LED bumper lights. Bottom line is that when it comes to anything that deals with lights, more than likely we can do it. Just let us know what you have in mind and we will take a look into it and let you know what we think.
This really depends on what types of parts you really wish to use as well as what parts you currently own. Remember, the more parts you put into your retrofit, the more your total cost will be. Please contact us so we can discuss your project.
Not a problem. Just because we have not done a set right there and then does not mean it cannot be done. It’s just that we have not had the opportunity to work on that set. Of all the years of experience as well as all the different types of years, makes, and models that we have done, we find that all headlight assembly as well as taillights are constructed in the same manner as well as functionality wise. Other than that, the only difference is really just the size and shape. So please contact us and see what we can do for you.
Sure we will, but this is not guaranteed that we can complete it. This really depends on how far or what you have done with your retrofit. Detailed pictures would be nice to see what may have been done in order for us to know whether we can complete it for you or not. Also note that this will not reduce your overall total price unless you only want us to complete a specific part. For example, maybe just putting in a shroud since projectors are mounted the way you want them. Other than that, if it requires us to redo your entire work all over again, the price will still be the same. Please contact us so we can discuss your project.
Color modding is basically having to modify the projectors in any specific way to thicken the color band the lies right on top of the cutoff line of the output. Some methods could be swapping out the lens, depending on the type of projector being use, or maybe spacing out the projector parts like the reflector bowl, cutoff shield, or lens retainer. For most projectors we use this is generally already fine tuned from the manufacture. There are some OEM projectors that may require some additional fine tuning, but we usually already add that into the service.
This is pretty much about the same as “color modding”. The only difference is that clear lenses are generally used for specific applications, mostly projectors that came with fresnel lenses. Fresnel lenses are those types that are not crystal clear and have certain types of patterns in them. This generally makes the cutoff line look a little fuzzy. The clear lens will make the cutoff line razor sharp and usually gives a much better color band right above that cutoff line as well.
The answer is yes to both. We generally would ask that you send your own set of headlights if possible, but we know that sometimes that is not possible. In that case, we can provide you with brand new OEM or aftermarket replica headlights, but would require a deposit for the cost of the headlights before we can place an order for you.
Definitely. The only thing is if you have problems with your own parts, you must notify your supplier to resolve any issues. We can try to help you diagnose any problems, but that is as much as we can offer.
Generally we do not. Everything is do is all custom made to order. However, as time progresses, there may be a good chance that we can provide some preassembled. The only problem with this is there is no choice of adding additional options to the retrofits. It will end up becoming more of a standard setup and we will try to offer them at the lowest price range we can provide them. But again, additional options would end up becoming just a plain custom retrofitted setup and not a premade assembly.
This would depend on the projectors you choose to use. In most cases, you would probably be using the standard D2S bulb type setups. However, there are other projectors that use different types as well, like D1S or even D4S. Our most popular setup uses the H1 bulb type from Morimoto. Let us know what you have in mind and we will let you know what works and doesn’t.
Yes, but this is NOT recommended. The reason is due to the lumen outputs. The higher the Kelvin rating you go for more color, you actually lower your output for more color. There may be other factors that play this role of lowering output, but one main reason is due to the coating of the bulb itself. Although in pictures as well as real life, the bulb may look clear, look down the center of the bulb itself. You will notice that the glass has been dyed in a specific color to create the Kelvin rating you may be wanting. So in turn, this dye will actually block out SOME of the lumens and create a lower output.
This really depends, but we would always recommend adding them in either way just for the added security. It’s better to put any type of electrical strain on the relay harness than on your factory wiring. Installation on the relay harnesses are also quite simple since it is all direct plug and play as well as every connector being labeled to make it even easier.
Send us an email, call, or text so we can finalize your order information.
Yes, we are a worldwide retrofitting company. We have done several retrofits for countries like Canada, UK, Australia, Philippines, etc. The only issue with providing services from around the globe is whether you are willing to pay for the high priced shipping. This is mainly due to the size of the package and such, so if the answer is yes, then our answer is yes as well.
The only time we ask for any deposits is if you are requesting for us to provide you with a set of headlights or special order parts that we do not carry. Other than that, no deposit is required to get started on your retrofit.
PayPal is our preferred method of payment. It makes it quick and simple for everyone and best of all, more security for the customers. We do everything we can to give everyone a satisfied experience when dealing with us at HID Illusionz
In most cases, it is about 1-2 weeks after receiving your lights, depending on how many others that may be ahead of you. If you do require to have the lights completed a bit quicker, please let us know and we will work with you on your schedule. You just need to let us know in advance so we can make sure to have everything set up in time before your lights arrive to us. The only thing you have to know is the shipping transit time. There is nothing we can do to speed up this process unless you wish to pay for overnight shipping, which can get quite expensive. In any case, always plan ahead of how you want to proceed with this process. We are always here to work with you as best as we can.
Of course. We do our best to keep in contact with all our customers with updates of what is going on with your project from the time that we start. As long as we know exactly what is going on with it, it should be a quick and painless process. Once everything is completed, we will update you with your final pictures of your retrofit.
We ask that before shipping anything, please take the time to wrap or pad your headlights or any parts you will be shipping into us. This means to wrap your headlights with bubble wrap, foam padding, or anything to help protect against any damage that can occur. Remember that the shipping carrier is not you. They will throw, toss, and stack boxes together as long as they make it to their destination within the time frame they claim. So be smart with how you package your contents.
Technically, any modification done to any vehicle is not really considered “legal”. As long as everything is within specs, you should be fine. We haven’t had anyone really coming back to us and complain about any issues with the law, but we cannot guarantee that for every person. Every retrofit we do, we do all we can to line everything up within specs so you can still drive safely at night. But just note that all retrofits or custom work we do is for “off-road purposes” only.
Plain and simple. Anything labor related that we provided having any defects will be covered under our full lifetime warranty. So to name some of them: condensation within the lights, beam rotation, projectors or shrouds falling loose, paint peeling or flaking, etc. Products, such as HID bulbs, ballasts, wiring harness, angel eyes, etc. are based on manufacture warranties, which are listed within every products in our shop.
First, let us know what the problem is. For labor services, if this cannot be resolved, then the only option would be to have to send the lights in so we can check it out and see what went wrong and have the problems taken care of as quickly as we can. For parts, we would ask a few things to have diagnosed first just to make sure what part was exactly at fault. Once we can have this pinpointed exactly what it is, we will send a replacement part and give you further instructions of what to do with the old parts. No products will need to be sent back, but we will require a few things to complete the warranty servicing. We always do what we can to help resolve any issues that you may be having.
Definitely. You will still be able to use your factory adjustment screws to make any minor adjustments that may be needed to be within specs. Not all headlights have a vertical and horizontal adjustment, but if any, ALL headlights will definitely have a vertical adjustment screws and some will have the horizontal.
Yes. We understand that this may be your first time actually handling a product like this, so don’t worry, we are here on standby for you to help guide you through your install. For the most part, it’s a fairly simple process to put together. Everything is all plug play. If you still have any problems, please contact us and we will be here for you.
