HID conversion kit installed!

Story is,

-UPS delivered the kit.
-I installed it! (very easy install just takes alittle time for a clean install)
-.......aaaaand now im late for work lol

I went with a 8000k kit. I know all about the amount of visibility lose. (did my homework). Made sure i aimed my lights lower to make sure not to blind people...well as much as i can, im sure someone will still not be happy.

Good install till i can come up with the money for a retrofit but its definitly in the future so don't worry ppl.

Off to work, Have a good one people of PZ

Re: HID conversion kit installed!

So sorry about taking forever but here are the pics hopefully they load correctly. I put them in when it wasnt dark outside so pics woulda been useless but here these babies are. Had to re-adjust them lower for obvious reasons :)

Re: HID conversion kit installed!

Dude, you linked them inside your gmail? Nobody can see them from inside your gmail but you.

Why don't you save them to the desktop and post them as attachments to your post.

Re: HID conversion kit installed!

There 8000k the camera seemed to exaggerate the blue a little when taking the pictures but they definilty have blue in them. Im the type of person that like to "mock" things up before I go big on name brand things that i havent dealt with( like these HID kits) but I only paid 35 plus shipping off ebay for these. Now that Ive said that I would not suggest ebay for all other parts. I am a firm believer in "You get what you pay for!" and "Quality Cost Money!"....These just happen to slip the radar lol. so anyways yeah these are an ebay pair of 8000k HID conversion kit 9006 low beam. Im just gonna keep these. Also my AEM Intake came in today and ngk plug wires so out i go to install!

Re: HID conversion kit installed!

Thanks all for the comments. im gonna stick with these in the lude cause i like the look of them at night and they light up anything reflective or white sign well.

Freeclowns: Im gonna say they are around 6k also cause its not a distintive blue or darker color. I attached a color chart for ya cause sometimes pictures just make things look different then they really are.
