FINALLY got my 8000k HID's on! (no pics yet)

These are awesome. Now I know what I've been missing all along. From far away it has a really blue/purplish tint and looks like a BMW or Lexus and they are way brighter than my stock hologens, even though they are 8000k

I will get some pics up later tonight after we install my friends kit (he got the 6000k kit for his galant).


I ran into some problems keeping the HID bulb in there with the clip (and I didnt have a spacer). So for anyone running into this problem, my dad came up with the idea of stacking up hose washers on the bulb to build up to the size of the spacer and then use the clip to keep the bulb tightly in place. It worked amazing. So if any of you ever get hid's and run into this problem, buy some hose washers (rubber washers) and stack them on top of each other on the HID bulb.
