    Is the price what keeps you going with HIDs? Sure, I paid out about $250 for my low-beams, but I would never go back to filament bulbs.

    silverstars are good, but pricey. i got 2 sets of eurodezigns bulbs from ebay for $1.98 total and they come with a lifetime warranty from the company....so when they eventually burn out i can get them replaced for free. i'm happy with the results. before and after pics are on the 3rd page of my cardomain.

    What are you talking about??

    The pop-up headlights on the Firebirds looks great, they fit the character of the car perfectly.

    I think they may have a slight blue tint. But they are mainly a bright white.

    Most I've seen are just diff temp HIDs that give off that yellow color. The diff temp makes the bulbs color change... It goes: Yellow, White, Blue tint, Blue, then Purple.
