Funny you said that. I've dumped close to a used set of those TT lights into developing mine. I actually really hate their looks.

On the lamps. They are exactly the same. Hella's Bi-Xeon lights are actually different than the Bi-Halogen lights. But for single beam light (these 90s are single beam), you are just paying for the Hella ballast. What I have is exactly the same lamp touratech sells. You can just put in your own HID bulb.

I know quite a bit about Hella lights. Actually the 90mm is an older design than the 60mm. But there isn't much room to fit those huge 60mm projectors.

For your research/project, you can use the following as reference.

ALSO, check out Lynx fairing, they use the same 90mm Hella and have HID kit you can buy. Both will give you a good idea of the quality of light.
