HID High Beam vs. PIAA's - help
I installed the CQLight HID low beam. As everyone experiences, my high beam now does very little. But, I need more light for offramps and dark turns, so I'm considering either adding some PIAA's (relayed to the high beams) or going with an HID High Beam light. Thoughts? Since the high beam only seems to be focused in the very center above the low beam light, I'm assuming most of you will say go with some PIAA's or the like. But which one's are bright enough, and fit an '03 GT, to make a difference over the HID low beams? Again, I'm looking for additional distance light for offramps and turns, when I need more light out farther to see better. Also, can you run PIAA's all the time (like the 1100's), or are they too bright to run with the low beams? Thanks.
