How do they light up the road? The wheels look good too :bigthumbu I went with my steelies for the winter. Your car makes me want to go back to the stockers but I was leaking air on those. Not sure if it was the valves or the actual rims.

I have Hella 4000 Rally lights with the Euro beam pattern on the front of my truck and they are VERY bright, can really light up the road ahead. If these driving lights are anything like them, then you have plenty of illumination available. :bigthumbu

Yes it is dimmer, that's because the camera automatically adjusts the exposure unless you use an option to lock it so it's the same in shots. So the bottom pic would be brighter if the same exposure was locked in for both pictures, but since the camera sensor detected more light it shortened the exposure, making the picture indeed dimmer.

I still see everything with them! In fact i avoid deer because the light reflected off there eyes as i approached and made them out real well. :hehe: but yea just my preference. Once you go HID you never go back is my moto.

Have you read my cardomain, they are real alright. McColluch HID to be exact. They are an old model as they are two years old and the fact my car is only a summer car. But still they are a real!! I don't use poser material on my car. My ballast are hidden behind the marker lights.

O the pic in my sig is over exposed thats why they look weird.

HID's need to be retrofitted or there is no sense IMO.

I dig those lights!
I'd really love a set of those in a CS bumper.
I may have to get some info from ya later on from where you purchased em!

I know they would look baller inside a ST165 bumper.
