HID install pics
Thought I'd share some pics of the HIDs I just installed. This is just the standard DDM kit, 35w, 5k color temp. I thought I'd give these a try since a lot of people think they are a good value. If the ballasts start giving me problems, I'm ordering a kit from Retro Solutions.
I really did not want to get some high-powered kit that would throw light everywhere and blind other drivers. Usually I'm not a fan of putting these kits in non-projector housings, but since I have an '05, I have the stock bulb shields built into the housing, which cuts down on the glare.
Pic 1 shows the cutoff. It's no sharp cutoff but I think it's decent. The color temp seems to be a bit higher than 5k but I'm satisfied with it.
Pic 2 is a comparison: 5k HID in the headlight and Sylvania Silverstar in the foglight
Pic 3 is the pattern with fogs on
I'd debating doing 3k regular bulbs or HIDs in the fog lights.
