Why do people buy HIDs? They cost so much and do not last nearly as long as regular lights.

Here's a pic of my MTECH's I don't know if I got a "lucky" set or if they all look like that. I would rather put the $300 HID money towards a header... but that's just me.

i recommend PIAA extreme force, but then again, it's for your high beams. PIAA extreme white is good enough. MTECH is okay. whatevr you do, just don't get eurolite, they're like stock brightness...

Heh, so who else thinks that the headlight bulb retaining clips were designed by either
a) an octopus
b) a moron
c) someone with a twisted sense of humour

GOD DAMN those things are a pain in the backside!!!

It's a Nikon Coolpix 4300, that's in 1024 X whatever mode. Yeah it takes awesome pics. Especially if I go up to 2272 X whatever. (it only gives the first resolution number for the size) Takes awesome pictures! grin

I would vote for a moron sitting at a computer who has never seen the car, and at best seen a headlight sititng on a table all by itself.
