Yeah, good combo. You should be able to see really well. Too bad nobody else that'* looking at you will be able to LOL. There is a guy here with a Mustang that has that combo, and everytime he'* coming towards I can't see a damn thing. It'* not because of a glare, its from the color combo. The nice blue mixing with the yellow kills my eyes.

aside from buying projectors, im gonna try and be as polite as i can to other drivers. from my research ive found that blue is a very hard color on the eyes, which is why i am going for the whitest light i can.

im still debating on 4500k or 5000k kits. opinions?

I went with the 6000K....I live out in the country and the more light the better for avoiding critters and crack heads.

I would also go with 6000k. It'* the most common HID color to use that'* not hard on the eyes. I think the guy I was talking about uses 10000k or something. That'* probably why it hurts my eyes.

There'* a few Honda'* around here running 12000k or 14000k because their lights are VERY purple, and don't light the road very well. Seems to be more dangerous for them.

You don't need those but you will want a relay harness for each kit

I would think they do, if not check Ebay

They pull power straight from the battery because stock wiring doesn't provide enough power, it uses the stock wiring to trip a relay

OEM HID'* are 4700k, I went with 6000k because that'* the most usable light you can have. Anything higher than that starts to change color and light output goes down, and it will get you noticed in a bad way from Johnny Law.

I am going with a 35w 4700k (or 5000k) heads and fogs in my Mustang this spring, since it is noticed more already by the cops thanks to my exhaust.

I want to go with a 3500k fog set up in the Bonne for the winter time

That harness will do fine.

Disabling the DRLs disables the flash sequence with it. If you have an 00+ Bonne (might help us to help you if you fill in your signature), just pull relay #30 in the fuse panel under the hood.
