Happy Halloween,

Does this happen to anyone? I have an UDP and my headlights get dime when my car is at idle. They are fine once I get moving though. Is this just some of the negative aspects of have a UDP?
I thought maybe my altenator was on the fritz.

What kind of udp do you have? I have the Afx udp, and i have yet to install it. I'd like to know as well if other people having the "dimming" problem..

well i searched and came up with a few threads about the dimming problem

It seems a lot folks enjoy their udp's so far, and i can't wait to get mine installed!

I have an Hid kit and the the bulbs use only 35w, so there shouldn't be any problems, I think.

I have the AFX, and yes it does dim a tad...I do have 2 amps (medium in power) also. But nothing is wrong other than the idle not charging as much as used to with the larger diameter pulley. But at speed, any speed actually, the car is right at spec.

Have fun, enjoy that low end response/torque addition to your line-up....

mine dim slightly at idle...and the fan/AC also slows a little at idle. Other than that, no issues whatsoever. Great mod.
