Appearance-wise they look much better imo, and the brightness is awesome at night - much greater visibility...

Let me know what you guys think - thumbsup

Dude, Sultan also installed PIAA bulbs for his other stuff. That makes his HIDs 1/4th as bright as stock lights. My flashlight is brighter. rofl

ondepot 6000K HID kit pics...


I had a hard time deciding if i wanted "HID/white" looking fogs or yellow fogs.. since I planned to turn my 6000k hids frown into fogs thumbsup
Anyways nicely done with the lighting Sultan Everything flows and matches real well. What kind of ballasts are you using??

BTW Erick, either one would look awesome for fogs. Amber would give you the same look as the IS300 (which is sick), but 6000k would be sick too. thumbsup

^^^ Whoa... 12000k? I've never seen that on a Celi. If you are THAT serious about going purple though, I'd try to just find a S2K projector & HID kit.

Post some pictures as soon as the HIDs are installed, those stock ones you have in the pics look like shit IMO...


Linked Image Those look really bright, I like em. Can't wait to see your car once you have all that stuff installed though.

they are nice, but i hear they are becoming illegal...especially when your lamps were not made for hids...makes them too bright and distracting to other motorists. is this true?

they are illegal well least here in the US.. it is illegal to have HID's when your lamps were never designed to carry HID's.. since at times just sticking in an HID bulb will cause glare to other drivers.. spineyes

they are illegal if used as an
aftermarket mod but i doubt that
a cop will stop you for it

you'll definitely get some nice color out of those but will sacrifice brightness. Stick with 8000K out of those two choices - I can't imagine how dim the 12000's will be...
