Thanks! Do we know for a fact that the QQX60 has 35W ballasts? I just assumed, due to the mediocre light output.TheRetrofitSource makes great reliable products and here is theirs: D2S: Morimoto Elite HID System - HID Systems from The Retrofit Source Inc
Just make sure to use the dropdown menu and change the ballasts to Morimoto 5Five from 3Five for the 55w ballasts.
Also, if you want their better bulbs, go with the XB35 bulbs, they will match closer to their respecitve Kelvin rating. Or of course keep what you have or buy better OSRAM bulbs, they have them too although they are pricey.
And finally, I'm sure you know this, but running 55w will increase your bulbs intensity by about 20% but will also reduce the life of the bulb by 20%.
our cars def have 35w ballast. but i also wonder if the projector is the issue. my other car (VW touareg) has 35W ballasts (with d3s bulbs) and is far brighter.Thanks! Do we know for a fact that the QQX60 has 35W ballasts? I just assumed, due to the mediocre light output.
Where are teh stock ballasts, so I can see how hard it'll be to swap them out.
I think they are awful. Most dim xenons I have ever seen in the last 7 or 8 years.Yes it is 35w factory, they won't overdrive the bulbs to 55w.
If people think these hid's are bad, imagine if they went with halogens... I've had LED headlights in two previous cars and these hid's aren't horrible in the qx60.
You can trust these guys. They did some work on a previous car of mine and they did an excellent job.I guess quite a few people are bummed about the lack of LED DRLs and making mods to change that, lol. Nice find, I wish I was closer to their GA shop, I'd trust them to mod inside the headlights. But shops around here in NY... nah, I'll pass.
I'd say that's a huge guess. I'd think you have better luck putting in a complaint with NHTSA on the light output and if sufficient people do the same, there may be a recall for it.I say we keep an eye out for improved headlights on a possible refresh for 2015 and push infiniti to change out our headlight assembly's if an improvement is made. On a refresh the redesign would fit, it'd just be updated in the housing with probable light focusing improvements.
my previous car was a 2011 G37x. i really have a tough time believing that they are the same projector. the QX is noticeably dimmer and the cutoff isn't nearly as sharp as the G. can't provide a side by side pic though.So I got an answer from The Retrofit Source
"The QX60 actually uses the same projector as the G37 Sedan which is quite good from a performance standpoint."
Can someone compare this the G37 with the QX? I don't own a G37 or have anyone near me that does.
I'd like to provide a picture of the two lights on the same wall if possible.
I see Harlemn's picture against the RDX but not G37. Help?
