Tiffin Allegro uprated headlights

My Tiffin is based on the workhorse chassis, I would like to fit HID lights to the front, does anyone know if there are suitable lights available with no beam patern??????? The lights fitted on mine are the basic rectangular lights. Thanks I am fed up with not being able to see at night!!!!

If your lights are sealed beam then I would take one out and visit my local auto parts house. If they are not sealed beam then you may be able to upgrade the element.

Good luck.

Fitting the uprated bulbs is not a problem, I can get some higher wattage H4's and fit relays, I wanted to fit HID bulbs like a new BMW, for these the lense needs to have no beam diffusers, I have seen older cars in the UK that have original looking lights but suitable for HID, I was wondering if any of you guys know of any for the workhorse light.

Sorry I failed to read your post throughly, a bad habit that I need to break, try googling "retrofit+HID headlights" you will get several ideas the rest of course will depend on your level of expertise.

Good luck.

Thanks dude I will try that now. If there are any firms out in the US that do anything like this maybe someone could let me know as we are pretty lacking in the UK.

Thats correct but you alter the direction of the dip by tuning the bulb in its holder to get the correct pattern, we can buy the stock light unit suitable for our roads.

I'm surprise that the base configuration would allow you to turn it in it's base, even more surprise that if it was rotated say 180 degrees to make it dip the other way that it would still dip down and not up.

They've evidently made a lot of technological advances since I lived there, at that time it was the cut of the lense as you mentioned earlier that directed the light pattern.

I already have the HID Bi Xenon kit but if its put in the stock headlight unit the beam pattern is all wrong it needs a dedicated HID light unit.

Find out the model number of the stock light,like I have,mine are ford taurus 1995.There should be a number on the lights.If it is a stock 9007 or somthing like that there should be a hi-performance light for that model,like Discount Car Lights
