AS per title indicates, newly installed. Ths HIDs are 4300K (same as most OEM HIDs for max light output). Jus snapped a few picks when I installed it.

If there are requests for angles, let me know.

ahah thanks man,

I did it a few times for some stuff and if you have advice on this it would be nice. THe problem I always have is the fact I don't have a garage and whenever I start painting there is always some bugs or dust or something that gets stuck on my painting surface. It's really a pain the the (_._).

What do you do? Or do you have a garage? ahah.... darn it..

Well, since I live in an apartment, I HAZ NO GARAGE, so I just did it out in the parking lot. It will be ok. I mean, its the grill, its on the outside of your car, its going to get dirty.
Unless a huge bug or mud ball lands on it, youre fine.

I even did my interior pieces out in the parking lot too! And they came out close to perfect!

Looks good. Did you wire them up so that they stay on with the high beams also?
Well I didn't modify the wiring actually, so this is what happens:
1) When you pull on the high beam lever when the low beams are on, they are both on.
2) When you push your high beams lever forward the low beams shut off.

I think ( I don't know) it's made so that the wires won't sustain a 110W maximum at all times (assuming if you keep the halogen insides 55W each). But if you pull on the lever it would assume that it's temporary so they all stay on. I guess it's to protect it.

Yeah which HIDS did you get? Single or the bi-xenon ones?

and also, where did you get them from?
I got the el cheapo VVME single beam 4300K (3100 lumens claimed) for the low beam BUT with the relay harness, I didn't see a point for the bi-xenon in a projector and the high beams are still halogen. And at VVME.com

Looks sexy with that gmpp ground effects kit on the front. Props for a nice ride.
Thanks mate!

Cutoff pic!
will have them by tomorow, I'm aiming them tonight so I'll snap a few.

thanks for the advice. Actually I re-did my emblem 3 times, because the previous times I always had some stupid ass bug get stuck on it or some sort of chunk of dirt.

I think I'm gonna wait till I swing by my friend's house and borrow his garage for at least the critical drying time.
