Re: hid upgrade

Re: hid upgrade

At first I wanted the 8k, but ended up getting talked into the 5k and I'm glad I did. The light looks much better. I also tinted my tails a few weeks ago, it was pretty simple and turned out great. I really wish I would have spent the $20 and done it sooner.

Re: hid upgrade

6000k will still have a little bit of blue. 8000k is too much blue IMO.
