Yeah it's like a plague . Once you drive with HID's you never want to drive without and start thinking of the ways to upgrade other vehicles you have ridden in. Do they have any good projectors for the PT Cruiser?

Looks like I'd have to do custom projectors for headlights, but there are projector fogs. In other words it looks like its just getting silverstars lol.

On the plus side there are only 3 interior lights (and glove box I think maybe) and the lic. plate i suppose so it wouldn't quite be as expensive as the jeep.

The wife works from home now, so it only gets used about once a week. She'd probably get upset if I spent any money on it though, and I'd rather put the work into the Jeep.

Re: 01Grand finally gets HIDs and projectors!

I'm still trying to get rid of my Gen 3 housings and XD Philips 4300k HID kit.

35w is surely sufficient but I guess it really comes down to the quality of the projector you're using.

Why's that? Illegal or something?

Thanks Marty!

Yes, they are illegal there, I think because they don't come from the factory that way? Too bad shipping across the Atlantic is expensive, although I really wanted the 6000k too, all my LEDs/HIDs match.
