your lights look cool. When I installed mine there are glares or something and doesnt look like how the stock is (not colorwise) if you know what Im talking about.

was my first time installing and I kinda let the bulb touched some parts of the car while I was putting in. Maybe thats why it burned out so soon. I didnt touch the bulb with my fingers though. The place was so small and it was hard to put it in without touching anything.

I always make it a habit to wear my machanic gloves when installing bulbs - that way I don't have to worry about touching anything...

i wore rubber gloves, but i still touched the bulbs against some of the car... but i think thats a lot less risky then touching my fingers, once i took off the rubber gloves (like doctors gloves) my hands and the gloves were wet as hell...

this weekend ill put in the fogs, and change the clear corner bulbs to hyper whites, so everything matches

The EC store is the place to get them. thumbsup

For sure get the lows. High's also serve as your DRLs, if you didn't know. Oh... and if you get any of them, make sure to get the polarg bulbs for your parking lights, or it looks sort of strange when your headlights are on. thumbsup

it was 60 bucks from ecelica (great service) on top of that i bought a set of parking lights (drls) i dont like the hyper white turn signals, too blue for me...

they look much better, but i might have messed up on the right one cause theres a huge flare from it... unlike the left one...

i do love the results though, very white, and bright, plus with the brights on i can hit Mirrors in almost all of my friends cars, and piss them off!!!

Hardest part was the install of the low beams... though i know the fogs are going to be a bitch too...
