HIDs :-)

I plan on having HIDs installed on my car soon, and I'm not installing them myself. Not taking the chance of screwing something up,and I want a professional to install them for me. I was wondering where I would have to go to have these installed. A body shop?

Seriously just get a set from buyhids.com. They are plug and play, no wiring involved, just straight plug and play

Ya, you're better off just doing it yourself! There's NO WAY you can screw it up, even if you plug stuff in backwards! It just won't work and you flip it around! When you install them ,make sure to pull the DRL fuse out tho, that way it gets rid of those "pesky" auto headlights!! lol

Well, don't you have to take the headlights out to install them? I know it's not that difficult, but I know it's just not plug and play. By the way...I did remove the DRL fuse yesterday,and the stupid auto lights still stayed on. I even used the manual,and everything. I'm thinking it had something to do with the lighting outside. I will try to do it myself now though,but if something goes wrong, I'm coming after you.haha.

Yeah if you're in a dark enough area or it might just depend on the lighting (i.e. gloomy day) but they shouldn't be on nice clear days
