Re: HID Upgrade for S80
Get new H7's for the S80... headlights dim with age, if the new lights are
dim as well then there could be a wiring problem... Volvo's tend to have
good headlights on them.
Don't get HID kits, they don't work properly - you need a proper self
leveling system, not just a bulb and ballast/ignitor that retrofits into a
standard reflector... you will blind other drivers and scatter light
If you want HIDs, go and order the HID's from an S80 (it will cost you way
more then $350 tho) with Xenon lighting system.
