Episode Notes

It’s so easy to walk into your local Kragen, AutoZone, Napa Auto Parts, Pep Boys, etc. and grab any ol’ headlamp bulb when one goes out (or you wish to upgrade). But before you do, you should watch this episode! There is a difference between a stock bulb and Hella’s bulb, and there is a right way and a wrong way to handle the bulbs. Plus we also get into headlamp alignment, showing you one way to make sure that you’re night blinding oncoming traffic at night!

Also in this episode we feature the first-ever Letterz segment, the return of the Partz segment, and the introduction of the new Ridez segment, where we feature a viewer’s ride on our show!

  1. Please explain to me how you’re getting +17 hp from electric fans… From what you’re saying that’s a better increase than my catback and headers combined on my eclipse.

  3. When adjusted, the lights should not glare in oncoming car or truck windshields, nor should they illuminate the passenger compartment of vehicles driving in front of you. If so this truck is illegal because the heads lights will shine into the passenger compartment???

  4. My 2013 honda civic doesn’t have to align light bulb i have to keep moving the bulb around help

  5. Your beam alignment works for that truck. You should discuss the light angles instead. Sedans sit naturally lower to the ground so the light beam will be less angled.

  6. HID’s are not illegal. You just have to make sure you use them in the correct housing like projectors not reflectors. If you use them in the reflectors the light gets shot into peoples eyes. On the projectors there is a cut-off line and does not blind the on coming traffic.

  7. Why is it that so many people fit stupid blow off valves which are designed to do just two things , 1 Make noise and waste energy 2 Lighten your wallet.
