Default Video - HID Headlight Comparison

After my LED Headlight Comparison video, people were asking me if I could do another one using HID's.

VictoryHID was kind enough to donate an upgrade kit.
Dean from Alberta lent me his Victory Factory HID Headlight.

You can watch my video here.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks Paul...a graphic example of why I love the VICTORY HID setup by CrossRoads...Fantastic light intensity on High and a good spread of light when I dip to low for oncoming traffic.
And the big plus of daytime visibility on low with the blue spectrum I chose.
Now I know categorically and undeniably I have the best light for my conditions and usage.
Great video mate!

Nice job. So to my untrained eye, the winner looks to actually be the aftermarket kit. It looked to put out better light. My RSV had only 1 bulb. I did convert to HID and it used a Bi xenon bulb that had like a shield that a motor tilted to give you a high beam redirect.
