Wow thanks for all the great ideas. Tint or mabey HID's sound cool and didnt think of them. There were also some others that i will have to look into.
With HIDs, if i decide to buy a new style of headlights in the future, will i be able to swap the HID bulbs? Or would i have to buy a whole new set of bulbs
It depends... If you plan on buying a set of aftermarket "projector" style headlights, the HIDs might not fit... Most aftermarket "projector" headlights aren't deep enough to accept an HID buld...
What specs are you looking for? I actually got the $50 kit from DDM because i wanted the slim ballasts and the $30 kit has full size ballasts. If you're willing to deal with more of a hassle with the larger ballasts in order to save $20 i'm sure you could manage to find a place for them but the slim ballasts are just so small and easy to put anywhere. Here is a link to that kit:
I went with 35 watt 8000k's for my headlights and fog lights and here's the link to the slim ballast kits I got:
And here is the link to a thread i made with pictures of my HID's in it:
The install is very simple and straightforward. Highly recommended for anyone.
A full set of 8K 35 watt HIDs (Lows, Highs, & Fogs) are instore for my Av when I get my tax refund...
Thanks a lot man, hat was exactly the information i needed to know
No problem. Hopefully you can get some! They make driving at night so much better and they look sweet :great: I think the 8000k is the perfect color because they look bluish and shine bright white on the road. If you want even more light output go with 6000k which is more white less blue but still has some blue to it.
I wouldn't put hid's in my highs because then you lose the ability to flash your highs (well you could but it's bad for your ballasts). I don't know why but whenever someone flashes me I have to prove to them I can get brighter:lol:
