I've been reading on them, and how cheap and simple they are to install. I'm ordering as soon as I can talk the wife into another $35 :)

Switchbacks with HIDs look sick IMO. I have them with the Audi mod too so its rly looking good :) it's the best mod for the money and really easy to install.

I don't have HID yet so I may wait on the switchbacks and get them all at once.

Not to go too far off topic, but can anyone give me a comparison of bulbs (not HID) to the factory ones?
I've been looking at Sylvania SilverStar Ultra (4100k) or Philips CrystalVision Ultra(5000k). I know it's not HID but looks like a much simpler replacement option.

I checked the Sylvania site and it doesn't appear like the H11B is available in the SilverStar Ultra yet. The Philip's US automotive lighting is not working at the moment.

What about just the Silverstar (4000k).
Any idea how they would look with Plasmaglow LEDs?
And Switchbacks?
I'm trying to get my colors to match.

Picked up my Koup this morning and the PlasmaGlow LEDs are SICK! It's a very bright 8000K string, from tip to tip of the headlight assembly. No pictures yet because of the rain and sleet currently coming down.
