Welcome! I'm also from Qc, Canada, so is masterz. Nice ride you have there!

IMO the 12K HID's are too much, and you can barely see at night I'm sure, they are less bright than stock.

Mags are very nice, good choice! Will look great once lowered. Any shots of your interior? curious about the leather seats. It's a nice mod for sure.

where in Qc are you from exactly? I'm in Montreal :D

X2 not that they look that bad but very annoying for other drivers.
not really, they are much less bright than my 6K 50W kit, and, like me, they are in projectors. No more annoying than stock healdights. Only time HID's are annoying is on very poorly aimed projectors or when they are installed on stock headlight housings that have the reflector bowl (no projector).

Brigthness has nothing to do with it! Although they do not give out as much light seen by the human eye they still put out the same amount of energy as a 6000°K just in a different spectrum. Since the energy hitting the retina is the same your iris closes reducing your ability to see properly at night. Plus apparently people tend to stare at purple headlights for some unexplainable reason.

IMO the best light is between 5500°K and 6500°K

I like the purple hids, I don't know how you see anything with 'em though!
In fact, it's not worse than stock lights I would say. Thanks for the comment :p
