Camaross305 HID 20,000+ installed Pics

Hey Everybdoy,


I'd like to thank Camaro for his great service and quickly responding to all my emails. I installed his 20,000K+ HID Kit, and although it took me a little bit longer than original assumed, it works well, and looks even better. I love the new look, and I am personally glad to have the hint of blue (not just white). When you see Xenons from a distance or in a certain angle, a lot of times you find the same hint of blue. My new angels work the same way. To each their own though, whether 6,000K, 8,000K or 20,000K, I think any of them offer an improved looks over stock.


Here some pictures, also compared to stock:

I acutually have a question:


How can I turn of the turning signals during regular driving, so that they are not on all the time. Whether during the day with just the angels or at night with Xenons, I really dislike the orange look.

How can that be done?

Thank you in advance,


CSL

They do look nicer. I don't have any experience changing headlights, so my question is even though they look nicer, can you see better?

Thanks for posting pictures! Finally helped me decide what color i wanted! I really appreciate a fellow forum member helping out another enthusiast

Quick Question: When you pass people while driving, do they get mad at you for having bright lights or anything at night? That's pretty much my only concern..I dont want it for it to be hazardous to others/cop magnet lol

I actually have the 6000k (which are probably the brightest) and ive had zero issues

I know a few have had some looks but no one has ever been pulled over or a ticket that i know of

I got the 6000k and they are extremely bright. But they do not project their light forward as headlights do. So I guess it doesn't bother other motorists I've never had anyone flash me or complain. They are only bright if you look into them.

One funny story with them though:

I have the 6000K kit and never really had a problem with the light being too bright and getting pulled over. I have only gotten flashed once in the past three months. They are bright if you look directly into them, but as J08M3 said, it does not project much light forward, so you can't really use it to illuminate your path of travel.

On the side note, I love seeing reflections of my angel eyes on the car in front of me while waiting at a stop light

M3Kid has the 6k installed and yesterday @ the meet standing about 100 ft away they were blinding the entire group looking at them while he parked...

These will be a future mod I was all set to order but for now decided to spend MOD $ on trackdays & track goodies...

Has anyone installed/have pics of the 8000K kit. I don't want a superblue look like the 20000K (though I admit it looks really good), but I think the 6000K will be too bright. I'm going to run stock headlights for now but switch to 6000K shortly. Thoughts, suggestions?
