i will warn you that due to the limited space under the hood you Will prob have to remove the passenger headlight assembly anf figure out somewhere to mount the balast for HID. Go pop the hood you'll see what i mean. Whatever you do and this goes for anyone changing bulbs...DO NOT TOUCH THE FILAMENT!

For those considering going HID (and I do support this as a worthwhile modification), make sure you select a 4200K bulb. Why you ask? Read and learn:

Skip down to "Human Eye" and "Chromatic Adaptation" if you aren't a speed reader. The 'cool' bulbs at 7000-8000K are vitrually useless. Generic Phillips kits are available at around $400, group buys can go as low as $300. Someone be a guinea pig please.

Also, with conversion kits you lose the high-beams. Currently, the only way of creating high-beams on a single-bulb headlamp (that I know of) is moving a reflector to refocus the beam, and those kits are $800.00++.

Thats OK. I saw a 1st gen with a HID kit on it and it was just SICK. HID's have a particular 'fluorescense' or shimmer to them that no ricer bulb can reproduce...except maybe the Catz system...but it's not available in 9007 and costs half the price of a real HID kit. Definately on my mod list :p.

Although I don't like those HIDs either, they do seem really helpful to the driver. I believe that as humans, we become attracted to shinny bright things, so we just have to look at the lights. I mean, you see a lady in shiny, skin tight black leather, you gotta look her over... common. :D

Short story:
Going to work tonight, I was at a stop light and on the other side I saw a BMW w/ HIDs and those really bright constrution. Thought about this thread and I looked directly at both of them to compare which was worse. By the time I was done I couldn't see what was infront of me and I had to stay there till I could see again. :lol: I'm not the BRIGHTEST person around.

I'm going to have to say, thats a no dice. 4200/4300 appear yellowish, and nasty to me.

Stay away from 5000k aswell, they're just 4200k bulbs with a blue coating.

If your going to buy HID's go for 6000k and be prepared to spend $400-800

Heres an idea of the color, its a crappy GTI ;) just kidding I admit it I am a whortexer

Have you guys looked at the kits here:

http://www.worldoneperformance.com

Go to the very bottom and click "Universal Parts", then click "Lighting", then "SPW", then "HID Plus Kits."

The reason I looked there is that their president was on the sight a while back (either here or Neons.Org) and stated they'd be doing stuff for the SRT-4. They have "dual beam systems" but I don't know if that means there are two bulbs or what.

Let me know if anyone figures it out.
