My Jerez Black with Nokia 2500K H8 bulbs.

Photos just won't show how sexy these actually are in real life. I think the perfect description would be; unique and bright

If you havent done coding you should. They look sexy at night with HID on and the intense of the yellow not dimming.

The car will be coded next week. I was also thinking about raising the wattege on the DRLs/AEs to go even brighter. Would I be stepping into trouble by doing this?

You know, there is no real need to specify this every single time. The model year of your car is not relevant, and what packages you have even less so. Quit being a douche.

Then again, maybe I'm just better because my M3 is a civic

I have no idea. I know that just leaving them intense with no dimming at all, give a really good look at night. During day it's the same but at night a whole new different look.

If you don't like it, not my problem. Stop reading and you'll be fine. Quit being a bitch and stop whining.

Just go ahead with it man and don't tell him anything. I doubt he'll notice anything different other than they look super good as you're not switching to white LED or something.

It's actually a she hahaha. She said no way can you not mod for 3 more months. I thought it'd be cake because I really actually thought I was done, but this is a nice touch.

Been going back and forth with these, but I think I'll add them to the to do list

Ok, so I'm thinking of doing something like this on the Fire Orange I'm picking up soon.

Do you guys think the yellow Lamin-x will go with my car?

Man, checked amazon Canada and the PIAA H8 is over $100 here. Price discrepancy even for the little things like this is retarded.

I bought the PIAA Ion Yellow on eBay for like $60 shipped to Puerto Rico. Something like that.

The car will look amazing with Ion and lamin-x

I don't put Lamin-X here because I know cops will pull me over. That's why I only did coding and Ion Piaa H8.

Been running Yellow Halos for a few years now...looks great and I get so many compliments on them! Looks mean as hell and gives that GT/lemans racing look to the car while still looking very classy.

I went with PIAA Ion Yellow bulbs and had my halos coded to full bright at all times...a must do if you do this mod if you want it to look proper.

Not the best pic, but here's a pic I took while I changed my low beams as well...
