I know a lot of guys on here have them, and I don't think I've ever heard of anyone having those kinds of problems.

I have 6000K hid's and Im pretty sure Hid's are supposed to run cooler than reguler head light bulbs. You shouldnt have a problem.

Is your kit a Pilot kit? How does the 6000K look? I got 3000K yellow for the fogs. Im pretty hyped i cant wait to install them!

Hmmmm.

As far as Colorados go, no. But, when I redid my TransAm from a '95 to an '02 (aesthetics) and replaced the front bumper/foglights, I bought a set of "Ultra Brite" something or others...they melted the entire housing surround after 5 mintues. :ugh2:

They're not that blue. The first picture isn't accurate. I'd say the second picture I posted is most accurate. It's a little difficult to capture the light color.

OIC. HAVE YOU GOTTEN PULLED OVE B/C THEY'RE "TOO BRIGHT". I GOT BUDDIES W/ THE DEEP BLUE HIDS AND THEY'VE GOTTEN STOPPED A COUPLE TIMES EACH.



BTW HOW DO YOU REP ON THIS FORUM?

Nope. Never been pulled over.

Just adjust them down a cunt hair and you'll be good to go.
