I left the high beam alone the 55w hid puts out enough light don't ever use the high beam.. If I need more my next step will be a light bar...

Or of u want just get another kit and swap out the high beam.i didn't bother. 55 w is the way to do it ..period!!!

I'm getting ready to order HID's for my 2013 Sport. Not sure I will go back to retro soloutions. I had them on my 2010 & had a few problems with them. I went through two ballasts & two harnesses had the terminals melted eventually. Now to be fair the customer service was great & I drive 41k a year so they were on often. Anyway, not sure I'm willing to use the same kit so maybe these eBay ones will at least be just as good if not better. The price is at least better so if I get the same life I won't feel as bad. How are these holding up for you Nemmesis?
