Latest mod-6000K HIDs



Installed these a couple of weeks ago, pretty simple install, not too bad looking either. Just saying.

HIDs are always a great improvement.

I don't think I can go back to standard bulbs, in any car.

Installed some 6000k low beams on the G8 monday, will have to find some for the fog lights. Anyone have any part numbers for those?

Fogs for the GTO are an H10. I ordered 4500K bulbs 35W ballasts and wiring harness.

VERY pleased with the results. They actually give off USEABLE light now!

I recently upgraded lighting on my snowmobile to HID's, I cannot believe the difference it made while night riding. It was like old gas lamps compared to the new set up.

I will be looking into better lighting for the GTO now too, the OEM's are definitely weak output by todays standards.
