Hey, not exactly sure where I should start.

I got me a 2013 CR-V EX-L just August, and I absolutely love this car, it is my first car actually too.

A little bit of background of me, I'm an 2nd year apprentice heavy duty mechanic, and I've done some small amount of automotive work since high school, where I took my first Auto class. I primarily work on the assembly of 797Fs (I have to brag)

I found the high beams on this car are incredibly bad and that I'll probably end up killing someone with the way I speed on the highway not being able to see jack sh*t.

So I did some (and not all) research, not all of it, and I was looking into HID/Projector/Halos as an alternative, also because I'm young and stupid and like subtle modifications to my car that cost gazillions of moneys.

I ordered me a BI-XENON MORIMOTO MINI STAGE III KIT (D2S).
With that kit, I also modified it to come with 55W XB35 5000K bulbs, and the proper MotoControl BiXenon H4/9003 harness. (I looked up the kind of bulbs I have on the NAPA website, and it said 9003, hopefully I'm right.)

With the kit ordered some 70mm White halos along with the kit because I made a random guess.

I also ordered me an extra set of cheap light assemblies in the case I fail horribly at tackling it myself from RockAuto, as someone from another forum I frequent suggested.

The question of this thread was to ask, did I make the right decisions, and are the 70mm halo's going to be the right ones?

I do sooooooo little night driving, that I got the Halo headlights from Ebay, and I'm content with them. The plan was to eventually go to HID, but since I noticed a slight improvement over the OEM lights, I'm good to go!

My Halo's are my daytime driving lights.

Most of me driving to work includes driving in the dark. I'm talking 5am/7:30pm. For long drives I leave close to 4am many times. Considering I usually drive on one of Alberta's worst highways, I think I really should get something good.

I'll be posting pictures of during and how it goes.

But I still was wondering if anyone here had enough experience, and knew I was at least on the right path for harnesses/such.
