Today I installed the HID bulbs. H7 low beam. Morimoto 5500k XB series. Pure white to ice white. The 6000k are ice white to blue hue. So far I am happy and the results are what I expected having a similar setup already. I also put an LED strip along hood edge. $40k and you would think they would have one. I was prepared to add side stripes with connectors I found to allow cutting led off a roll and have power supply to do as many as I saw fit. One was all I needed. Wow it is bright. I will get links to the connector and led roll as well as tilt switch I added to control it. I will get closer pics of the way I hooked it up. I also did led for the plate and reverse lights. Real bright. I will dig up links for those too. Really like these headlights.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

I'll give you about 6 months with those lights. Then I'll buy some

There is enough bleed over to get reflective signs to glow when your right up on them and I have the height of cutoff at most sedans trunk lid height. I have great vision and zero people flashing me. The blue line you get at the cutoff is pretty uniform. There is a slight hot spot, but it doesn't affect anything for me. Unless I am against a wall I can't tell. I have no complaints. Way better than halogen.

I am trying out some Lamin-X yellow fog light film. My white fog lights don't really help in fog so gonna give these a go. So far from a cosmetic standpoint, I like it. The added color especially among all that chrome, it pops. I have 800lm Diode Dynamics LED's behind them and they are bright, but no flashes from oncoming traffic. With out the film, I used to get flashed so I didn't use them much. Now I can actually use them and next time it's foggy I will have a useful mod. It gets foggy here a lot with the lake nearby.
