Fixed. That's probably why they're turning their heads.

What ever floats your boat.

stop getting all but hurt man .. fact of the matter is it's annoying /blinding as shit to other drivers. the fact that you're getting glare on your camera IN THE DAY TIME should be a clue

sure it may look nice to you .. but it hurts the eyes of others and is dangerous to drivers.. now if you had projectors with those THAT would actually make your car look nicer

hids in stock housings are bright enough as is.. and ill admit the forte has a pretty decent cut off for lights stock.. but adding color to it when it's going to spill over since it's not ment to disperse THAT kind of light is just making it worse..

Is that place on riverside?

And guys be nice...
I don't think we were mean...

elecblue06 has expressed just what I think. There's absolutely no point in getting HIDs above 6000k. 10 000k is ridiculous. Light output is extremely reduced, the color is annoying and pretty much all they do is blind other drivers. So why do it?

It's not about being mean or just being an ass, it's simply about time people realize the true purpose of HIDs is not to look "cool" (8000K+ doesn't), but to light up the road better.

Yeah, they would look great in a projector. But alone they are blinding to other drivers, specially at night. Even from miles away, if they are oncoming traffic or right behind you, they hurt.

I know the yellowish hue from the stock lights is not too sexy. However, you can change that with lower ks that are not too bright.

The problem is not that we don't like it. It's your car and you do whatever you think looks good to it.

The problem is that your lights are most likely blinding OTHERS. That's my concern.

oh and for my Fogs I plan to go yellow.
Great choice. (halogens, not HIDs, for the same reason as above..)

i have 10,000K HID in mine, have had them for about 3-4 months now, I have never even been flashed by anyone, they arent as blinding as people think, i would say the 6000k are way more blinding because the intensity of the light is much higher and travels further, the 10,000K ones the light does not travel as far and as intense as the 6000K ones do...

Nice HIDS,

You should get your fogs done + the DRL fog wire mod (makes your fogs run as DRLs without having the lowbeams on)

Put ambers in your highbeams/drls so during the day you'll have HID fogs + amber drls. At night you'll get both hid low/fog, and if you were to flash you'll get your highs running at 100wats I think? (cant remember but Im pretty sure the highs/drls have dual wattage).



Your car, your taste, lets not fight.

Bright lights
