If you have max 30 mins. then you'll get it done with ease. I did mine while I was at work!

I only wish I had that opportunity. Doesnt exist for me. Its either a nightime project in garage after kids go to sleep or weekend. Both are difficult. Seeing your pics makes me want to just get it done tonight. Ive had the kit for 2 weeks.

Besides 6000K, what are the other available temperatures for the Alpine HID Angel Eyes?

You guys motivated me so last night I did the install. Wasnt difficult. Also did the 6000k D1S bulbs and also swapped the turning bulbs with GP Thunders. These angel eye bulbs change the whole car. I love it. I cant believe what a difference. Took some daytime pics. Was an overcast drizzly day today but you get the idea. The lights dont bleed into each other in real life as they do on the photos. I just dont know the proper setup for the camera.

What aftermarket main headlamp bulbs are people using here? I've found the color of the OEM bulbs pretty nicely white. It is just the OEM AE's that are way too yellow. Is the color improvement really there? Supplier, price?

The OEM temperature is 4300k. There is a noticeable difference especially if you see them side by side. It's a nice mod.
