Do you guys know any kit that turns instantly on without the 2-3 seconds they normally take to light to the maximum?

The ones I have now when you turn on they go instantly to max light and then they go darker and they need 2-3 seconds to be full bright again. This is ok for the normal beam but for the main beam when you need to turn them on just for 1-2 seconds to light a turn or anything they are useless...

Yep HID's need to warm up, so you cant use them for main beam applications on cars that have seperate bulbs for dip and main beam.

The way manufacturers get round it is by designing headlights so that they have a reflector to change the beam pattern from dip to main, rather then having a seperate HID bulb for each.

TBO since fitting my HID's I haven't used the main beam, as it no longer needed :lol:
