what do you guys use for white bulbs in hi-beams, any upgrades so far done or not? Any recommendations....

Hi, nice work.
Why did you not try H7 LED?

Here in Germany, unfortunately none of this is allowed. :-/

He doesn't like LED's and honestly for highbeams they just don't have the power and throw that HID's do.

HID in hi-beams vs.halogen

Ok, it seems as if they have to warm up. the LED is fast there, one of the best arguments in my opinion

I Little Vid would be nice...

On both my Hundais the fog light signal is tired to the lo beam signal. It is just a looped wire on the multi function switch plug. You cut the wire and ground the fog light one to the frame. Then the fogs come on whenever you have the key on and the fog light switch on.

Now running thru the problem - flickering on both lamps.

My install is following:

7years+ Ballasts+Hella 3gen, connected to the Warning Cancelors, connected to the stock Hi-beam plug on both lamps. No Relay. No warnings on dash, just visible flickering like police....

Unplugged everything and connected both ballasts with cancelers to the morimoto harness. Got one stock plug free, not connected to anything. Got warning message on dash showing one bulb isn't working and needs to be checked, however both bulbs works great as it must, no flickering issue. At the same time got some kinda loud buzzing noise when I turn lights on (don't have it on fogs though).

Seems weird, looks our car uses less then 12V and might be required load resistors...which can not be....Any thoughts on that?

as I expected, the TRS confirmed, we need to use load resistors along with some extra plugs. Just ordered a set, will see upon arrival...Seems our voltage is really sensitive and vulnerable, pulse type Id assume...

If this is a case, how navein@ made his set work easily.....hmm?!

He probably started with resistors I guess.

Also I've been eyeing up a pair of 55W HID's. Think that's too much power? haha
Either that or 35W, but the 55W is nearly twice the lumens!

nope, not at all!!! You will get more white lights for sure aka wattage, but it will short ballast life spin.

you are you that good Cree LED H7 is certainly weaker than a HID kit?
