As I have these headlights in my 96 Liberty (known as Legacy)

Question is - What HID wattage are you using in your projector headlights - 35 or 50watts and I wanna hear your comments please.

You probably do not want to hear this, but you should not use HID bulbs in a reflector meant for halogon bulbs. The "hot spot" on the bulb is different between the two bulbs and the reflector will not properly reflect light. The result is light scattering all over the place blinding on coming traffic and providing a poorly lit road.

Here's some more detailed info.
