Bought new headlights for my 95. Not too impressed. I thought maybe HIDs would give a better pattern and more light. What's your experience been with these? Whose do you recommend?

TIA

HID's in a non HID housing like ours can give you more light but not necessarily useful light.
FWIW, I have smoked lenses. My HID's are a compromise, When I could see best on low beam then hi beams were useless. And vice versa.. Sooo I have the low beams adjusted a bit to the low side so I don't blind oncoming cars.
There are a couple people who have retrofitted a projector housing into a stock lens to make full use of the HID bulbs. There's a write up if you search for it.

Well, that doesn't sound good. These crappy headlights look good, but I almost need a flashlight to see where I'm going. I was hoping the HID was the way to go. Any suggestions on how to improve the light output?

What are you current headlights? Like factory gt?

I think cobra ones would atleast help since they're clear.
What is your budget? Some aftermarket headlights meant for HIDs would help (usually ugly imo.) or do some retrofit ones.

If you want retrofit lights, but don't feel up for the challenge check out yuke's HID.http://yukeshidretrofits.com/
They're expensive though.

Don't put HID's in a halogen housing as others have said, its completely useless.
