    Tropapits. Went to Goldcars today and installed the ff:

    HU with back-up camera (no headset monitors)
    HID kits (low beam and front fogger)
    Chrome for headlight and backlight
    Rainvisor
    (spent 54K for everything).

    Just arrived at home (Quezon - Pasay - Gen Trias Cavite) and observed the ff:
    1., HID (low beam) is not working (dead, then flashing both, then flashing 1 by 1). I just used it for ~1 hr (Pasay to Cavite). I'm very frustrated kase, madilim sa gabi (esp when the low beam is flashing 1 by 1). Goldcars installed H1 (8K).
    2. I observed the OEM HU that the screen brightness changing from time to time (normal then too bright, then back to normal, then bright...just seemed nag-auto dimlight something). I'm just using FM radio from Pasay to Cavite (no touching).
    3. HID front defogger - no problem - ok.

    Has anyone observed #1 and #2? Definitely, i have to go back again to Goldcars for the HID low beam.

    Sir numbah, thanks for the calls/text today.

    You're better off with high output bulbs anyway unless you're willing to do a retrofit/projectors.

    I'd think na mas maganda light output/cutoff/buga ng Philips Xtreme Vision / Osram nightbreaker than a set of HID (non-retrofit) PnP HID kit.

    Easier to maintain too.

    Thanks sir. Not familiar with any HID kits and just asked dealers/Goldcars. Sana we should have some HID 101 lesssons para ma-educate folks. Time (na pakabit/repair) is more critical than cost..hirap kase mag travel to Banawe from Cavite

    do you recommend something as a replacement? The warranty from goldcars is 1 year...

    There must be some problems with the ballasts or maybe the wirings are a bit loose kaya on/off ang HID mo. We're better off with HIDs than those high output halogen bulbs since we have projector lamps. Better to bring your HIDs back to Goldcars and have them check the ballasts and the wirings. Retrofitting our projector lamps to original HID projector lamps will give us the best output (brightest and widest output), yun nga lang it is expensive, around 19-24k kay sir garyq. Pero nonetheless, mahal nga siya pero sulit naman. For now, sa simula PnP HID kits muna tayo then pag may budget na ulit, pwede na retrofit.

    Regarding the HU, check its settings. Baka naka auto brightness nga yung screen. I didn't experienced it nung tinest ko yung HU.

    Yup I know LTZ yung kay delta00. What I mean by retrofit is changing the projector lamps. Kaya ko nasabi ito since our projector lamps are for halogen lamps, not for true HIDs. Yun nga lang, very complicated since may manual leveling feature ang headlamps natin, mawawala yun pag nagparetrofit tayo.

    BTW, I confirmed thru SMS with Chevy Philippines' AVP for Service and Aftersales that the dexos2 fully synthetic oil is already available in all Chevy dealers since last week. He even issued a circular regarding it. So *delta00 and *safala, looks like your service advisors tricked the 2 of you into using mineral oil, para every 5k kms kayo babalik sa kanila.
