I am just not sure about them yet... I like the idea of HID's and they are 30,000k which were supposed to be more pinkish... But let me know what you think...



Honest opinion....

Yay or nay?

30,000K... might as well drive without any headlights, oh and it's illegal anyway. Anything 10K and above is illegal for street use. If you drive around with these on at night, I sincerely hope you get ticketed.

But since you ask for other's opinion: RICER

Seriously, if you actually plan on using your headlights for actual driving, don't go over 6000K.

Kindly noted. Haven't heard about anything regarding it being illegal, obviously not a moving violation if I have never heard of it. Will have to check with my trooper buddy. I guess one of the good things working in the insurance field, you know most of the cops. Being a Firefighter helps as well too.

Surprisingly I have yet to be pulled over in this one, and I have had it about a month. Which is an improvement, because I was getting harassed in my 92, within the first month of having it I was pulled over 4-5 times (never for any reason, just a "routine traffic stop").

Hi-beams still work the same, which is what I use most of the time anyways, and doesn't cut the HID's on/off. So hell I dont know lol

Well technically HIDs are illegal for any car that did not come equipped with them from the factory. Most cops won't pull you over if you stick with "normal" color headlights.

But you are a hazard to yourself and everyone else on the road. You might as well be driving with flashlights LOL. Not to mention they are a huge distraction to other drivers.

Blue is probably my favorite color... and I don't say "oooo pretty", I say damn ricer that can't see shit. Wonder what you would do in the rain or fog, since high beams are useless and well so are your low beams now?

Trust me, when you get older you will understand. Everybody goes through a ricer stage, luckily most grow up.

Do youself, and every other driver on the road, a favor and just get 6000K. 4300 would be even better, that's what OEM HID are.

I would run 4300 or nothing.

Basic rule for any mod, if you have to ask someone else if you like it then go back to stock.
