They produce a street legal output pattern, which meets all DOT compliance requirements, however, they will not undergo the DOT certification process.

How do you feel about these in a normal halogen housing?? My headlights are as basic as a 95 Cavalier. Would like to do anything possible without spending tons of cash.

Thanks!

They actually perform best in halogen reflector style housings, especially older designs like those found in your Cavalier

That's what I like to hear. Do you have a set date on the release of your product? Or am I safe on purchasing something from overseas as for now?

How will those new LED lights compare to the Evo HID?

BTW..anyone know how to adjust the height of the HID light? I searched on the web. Some say to use a screw driver, others say there's a nut. My car comes with the up down light adjust features setting from 0-3. However, that only brings them down more.

There is a vertical (height) adjustment screw on each housing. It's covered in the shop repair manual.

Iirc it's a 5mm hex (best option) with a Phillips "hole" in the center (worst option). If you have an assortment of 1/4 drive short extensions, sockets and ratchet (and small Trump-sized hands) you can easily reach the adjuster screws. Iirc the right side is tighter but the radiator overflow bottle comes out easily enough.

NOTE: There was a Mitsu recall about water getting into the reflector assys and the "fix" was to cover up that adjustment screw head.

I have pics somewhere.

Factory HID lighting is going to be your best bet, but our new SL1 is a great lighting performance upgrade in factory reflector style housings

We will have more information available when it's closer to being released
