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.
    I'm planning to retrofit for quad xenon but there will be slicing made so... nagdadalawang isip ako... mura na retrofit nya ngayon compared before.

    Actually, you can also purchase other branded engine oils as long as these are dexos2 compliant. You can even use the SAE 0W-30 if you are living in Baguio, for example, since the 1st letter of the SAE mark is the temperature and also, mejo expensive ang 0W-30 compared to 5W-30 that are both dexos2.

    Maaaring tama si *numbah5, the SA gave you a mineral grade so that you will have to change oil every 5k

    *numbah5, how much naman daw ang per liter ng dexos2 SAE 5W-30 fully synthetic oil? Other ranges from Php550 to Php900 per liter and we are talking of 7-liter capacity engine ;(

    800 pesos per liter. Also, please refer to my post at page 241 with the scanned images from the manual regarding the oil. Thank you.

    This is for all of us, for us to be enlightened about the engine oil. Especially *jojo728.

    *numbah5, thanks for the reply. I already have the TB manual, kinulit ko lang ang Chevy Greenhills to give me an owner's manual.
    It's 800 per liter, then the dexos2 SAE 5W-30 engine oil will be Php 5,600.00 already, oil pa lang.
    Actually, ACDelco ang manufacturer nung Dexos2 SAE 5W-30, General Motors is the global supplier.

    Correction lang sir.

    Cutoffs will still likely be affected by installing HIDs in projectors meant for halogen bulbs.

    Iba parin yung beam pattern niyan. The best non-retrofit upgrade for halogen headlights are still halogen.

    Posibleng mas maliwanag nga for the driver, pero kawawa yung mga kasalubong mo.

    Quoted from hidplanet.com:
    I would be cautious about putting HID's in halogen projectors because they will not likely have proper cutoff. I put an aftermarket set in my 2009 wrx (which had halogen projetors) and although the light output was significantly better than halogen bulbs, glare was terrible for oncoming drivers - those things would blind people on a highway overpass as I'm driving by on the highway. Took them out shortly after for safety reasons.
    There's a thread on this here if you guys want to do some extra reading.

    Based on reading the first few pages, parang mas panget din daw pala yung output.

    Okey ,DEXOS is the recommended Engine Oil as what chevy people say, but what if it is not available, at least they should have a substitute brand, marami dyan na also well known for lubricant-(ex. penzoil ,mogul, castrol etc etc.) na readily available,
