    What happens when people find DIY info online with pics!

    The do things like this to their car for the first time lol!
    thanks to ScionLife this is what my car looked like for about an hour or so. -








    Now all I have to do is get the 08 headlights and I will be done with this portion of my mods. I do want to get some fogs and upgrade them as well.

    Great upgrade. But thats only a kit right (bulb+ballast) ? Is there any shield on the bulb?

    Reason being is that HID kits have excessive glare especially on a reflector setup. Hope the 08 headlights have projectors as this will at least tone down the excessive glare.

    I've been playing with those things since 2005 and I've learned huge amounts of info from Hidplanet.

    Yes the 08's have projectors and actually on my scion have a little be bit more glare compaired to my silver star ultras. I still want it right but seeing as my last silver stars went out this month and I had to pay my insurance I decided to get the lights this month and then the projectors next month. The projectors will also give me a lot more light on the road since it's not scatterd. I don't do night driving much since I work d uring the day and get off at 5. I did check to see if I had anyone flash and no one did lastn ight. I did get flashed with my sivler stars and even my brother told me the lights were bright driving behind him so I'm sure there is some glare but not enough to cause a wreck.

    Re: What happens when people find DIY info online with pics!

    My lights have kind of a mean eye look have ever looked at a scion's headlight. It's a sweet design and I can tell a scion by the lights at night because the way the light is cut by the housing. I might get the eye lids anyway because of the look but the light housing is the first priority. I also kept my blue lights in case I did get more than 1 person flashing me. Thanks for the thoughts because if I didn't do research first I would have to check more into it.
