Very sharp!!

What exhaust do you have on it? My wife has a 2002 that we got recently and I am looking at making some mods. One being exhaust, another being CAI.

I love the spoiler too. Would like to get one, but at $300 unpainted, that is going to wait for now.

Actually the HIDs have to do with plasma discharge using gases rather than a filament and are very Crisp when you have Clear Housings to put them in while putting out more light than a regular "bulb", however to each is own everyone is going to have a diff opinion

Flowmaster. Not sure of the series. Previous owner had it installed. I have some vids on youtube. Soundsa decent for a V6

I thought HIDs were best to use in a projector housing? Im prob just going to upgrade bulbs sometime.

Yea, I just didnt feel like really explaining what they are. I have 8ks with a hint of blue and the slim balace. the positives is it does in fact light up the road in front of you but if the incoming coming driver happens to look at your headlights while driving past, it does hurt their eyes. I let my buddy drive my car while I picked up another car and couldnt believe how bright they were. In my opinion I think projectors aim the low beams so the reflective light so it doesnt end up above the aiming point.

Don't just buy the H.I.D bulbs, they won't be nearly as bright as with the kit.. You need a balace to make sure you have all of the powering for the bulbs.

This pic shows the difference of HID to a regular bulb. The ones I listed are reg bulbs but I think the reason the say HID is bc the light output looks like HID but it isnt? Anyone care to correct me?

http://www.hidinformation.com/hid-vs...halogen-bulbs/
So it sounds like either go to HID set up or but some reg bulbs that doesnt have the glass painted blue...

Like i said if I can hunt down where i put them ill throw them in there and u can try em out im not gonna need em for anything
