Depo Gen 4

Anyone have the Depo gen 4 headlights installed?
If so, are you still using just halogens bulbs?

I need new headlights. I like these since there is a projector to possibly upgrade to HID.

So, when you turn on the hi beam, do all 4 lights stay lit, or do the projectors turn off?

Do you have HID's in the projectors, and halogens for hi beam, or HID's in both?

Projectors do turn off when the high beams are on as swanman stated, some people have modded it so both stay on, can't recall who in here though.

On my base of I flashed my high beams by pressing the turn signal arm forward my projectors stayed on I believe. But they turned off if I clicked the high beams back

That's the set up I have. I could have done HID's for the high's, but for the little time I ever use them it wasn't worth the cost.
