Great review and install with pics – Acura RSX 3K HID Kit!
Check out some more information regarding our Xtreme HID Lighting kits please view this link:
Thanks to Steve @ XD for letting me test out the new XD 3000k kit. Here is my unbiased review.
The kit comes packed well, nice and sealed and insulated. The wires were nice and neat, very organized
Shot of the bulb out of the packaging. I made sure **NOT** to touch these with my fingers.
The instructions could have been a little more detailed, but they were easy to follow for the most part.
The bulb sits in there, my biggest worry is that there is no way to “click” it in place, as in it could rotate out on rough roads. I applied a small strip of tape there to hold it in place.
Time to apply the ballasts. They *WILL NOT* work here, I was hoping they would, but the bumper will not go back on with them placed here. It’s a perfect place though, too bad they dont fit.
Instead, using the provided double sided tape (seemed very strong) I placed the ballasts in the location of the square in this picture.
Each set of wires has 2 grounds, one for the car, one for the battery. I hid the wires well, taping them to my retrofit wires which are taped down along the frame. Wires in place, time for the first test shot!
Now I didn’t have many daytime / dusk pictures, as I was working on something else. I’ll have more daytime pics added at a later time, for now, here are some long shutter shots.
This one I believe was a 5 second shutter speed shot.
Nice black & white shot of the hid fogs
Shot of the view from behind the rsx. 30 second timer again
Shot from the side of the car, in the grass. I love the look of the HID fogs. I’ll try to get a cut off picture in a few days. They have a nice cut off for not having projectors. No real light comes up high. They spread out nice and wide too!
Cut-off of retrofits, w/ no hid fogs
Overall, I love the look they give off. I would recommend them to anyone who’s interested in the lighting aspect of the RSX. They go well with my retrofits. As I said the only problems are found are as follows; 1) the directions might need to be a little more detailed for non-experienced users 2) a way to secure the bulb in the slot 3) I wish they fit in my first location!
to XD and thanks a bunch to Steve for hooking me up with this kit!! I’ll save the first few spots of this thread for more pictures in the future. I’ll def have some pictures from the SoVA meet as well. I am excited about my XD 3000k kit.
