Thanks for the advice! I've always shot manually but wasn't sure which settings to use for taking pictures of headlights. I'll play around with it and see what works best.

The bulbs arrived today. I'll install one set first for comparison.

If it's pitch dark, I'd start with the lowest f-stop you can go, ISO of 800/1600, and a tripod. 8-)

Consistency is all you're going to look for between shots. This way, any differences will be the headlights and not the exposure settings changing on you.

I made the mistake of buying transition lenses after seeing the ad with the videographer/photographer in it. Bad mistake. I would get into a sunny area and wonder why my exposure was so dark. It wasn't the camera, but my glasses! :oops:

Hmm...so I wonder how they would look in the Kizashi as we have projectors on the low beam?

I don't think the projector changes anything. It'll just be brighter compared to stock bulbs
