newest mod: 6000K HID Kit!

overall, a real good mod, but i have to re aim them. installation overall is easy, the kit was plug and play. no need to remove the bumper in order to do this mod, you can get ur hand somehow to remove the headlights.
while i was at it, i thought of covering up the UFO holes but didnt know how to, i didnt have internet access to check out the site for instruction. well, we put screws in the holes which make the UFO and now nomore UFOs. the hardest part of the install was finding good screws to cover the UFO without covering the light output. we ended up putting 4 different bolts, 1 of them was the lift bolt. we edited/cut the bolts for better fitment.
here are the end results

although it's just the difference between the OEM stock headlamps vs OEM HID headlamps

but read the captions to not get confused.. I should make a better comparison of the two next time since I still them in the box rofl

a suggestion from me to future modifier.
do not weld that area, first of all its gonna be real hard. you have to take that rubber looking part and work in the headlight if you wanna cover the two holes. if you try to weld it with iron, you might accidently melt the headlight if you accidently move it around, or it might not even hold it cz the metal that ur gonna weld it on is aluminum. i would say stay away from weld. cz these HID lights are warm as hell and they might melt the weld. i wouldnt risk anything melting in the headlight cz it might damage the clear headlight cover. i turned on the headlight for 10 secs, turn it off, took the hid bulb out and accidently touched a rubber and that thing melted. i couldnt even take the melted rubber off the bulb

the problem with the UFOs are that the further you are, UFOs get bigger and higher. so if ur 100 feet away from a wall, ur UFOs are gonna look huge and be like 20 feet high. they might look good but i dont wanna hurt anyone nor get a ticket especially since its illegal in CA to have HID now.
but if you dont have powerful lights, the UFOs are gonna disspear in 100 feet probably
