Bulbs for Xmas
I plan on getting a full lighting package for christmas. I want high beams, low beams, turn signals, the works. Any suggestions? I want to get HID's. Or aat least somthing really bright, super white, mabey with a blue tint to it like the lights in Porsche's. Thanks.

Get HIDs... maybe Tony will be kind enough to post a link to where he got his. grin

HIDs are only for your lows though. Get MTEC bulbs for your highs and Polarg bulbs for your parking lights. They sell both in the EC store. thumbsup

I got mine from eBay. Just get the kit with D2R bulbs. These bulbs have built-in shields. Also, the you can use the stock retainer on the base. The so-called rebased bulbs requires modifications to the stock spacer or use picture wires to tie the bulbs to the housing. As for the ballast, get Hella. Some with come with ignitor built-in, some with external ignitors. It doesn't really matter. There are plenty of room in the headlight areas.

The sloppy look some HID kits have on our cars is caused by the two holes on the top of the stock headlight housing. This is what causes the "UFOs" with MTECs. The shields that come with the set Tony mentioned should prevent that, I think.

Nope. The two holes need to be covered to fix the "UFOs". Aim your headlights down a bit and they won't be as noticeable.

I bought some thin brass plates from a local hobby shop. But, we were running late when I was installing the headlight inserts. So, I didn't get it done.

I have the HIDs that came stock with my 04 gts, and they headligth housing is abit bigger, is this becasue of this ufo thing?
