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.

Looks pretty good I definitely think it's a good deal to go with either 5 or 6k because it doesn't absolutely blind other drivers but you still get the advantages. Plus it's not blue! I like it.

Yes I like pure white, usable light.

I'm thinking of going with the AM HID Dual Beam Headlight Conversion Kit (H13 Bulb). Anyone have any experience with this kit?
The product description states..."This HID Kit utilizes electromagnetic servo technology that is integrated right into the bulb holder to re-aim the headlight bulb up or down to switch between high and low beams." Electro-magnetic servo technology!? What the heck does that mean?

2006 GT Coupe, Black Clearcoat, 5 Speed, Dark Charcoal Leather, 18" bullitt (64W), ISAP, Spoiler delete, sequentials, 20% tint.
