Default White headlights? HID'*?

Are these available for our cars? I love the look of the European cars when they come towards you. Really makes them stand out.

I run the PIAA Extreme 4000k for both low/high beam and PIAA GTX 135 watt H3 in my angel eyes, and honesty they dont look anything like H.I.D. They are a great improvement over stock byfar but they do not have that heavenly glow of H.I.D.
Dont forget H.I.D headlights usally run around 4500k and hotter. If you even try and jack the voltage to the headlamps you will end up burning the wires and possibly melting the lens. I advise putting in the PIAA'* and calling it quits.
Remember it'* a Bonneville...not a Mercedes.
Cheers

Incorrect, stock HID'* are 4100k reputable manufactures only make 4100-4300k.

I wont get into the whole, must have projectors with HID bulb debate.

You get what you pay for...hence why PIAA'* are more expensive.

That sounds good....even though I won't be racing the Bonnie anymore. Once was enough. I still like to go though. I go sometimes with my buddies from the GTP club....
