Also, by reading your sig, might I suggest going to lower color temps for your bulbs? 10k bulbs are fairly ineffective as a light source, and seriously hurts oncoming drivers eyes even if your bulbs are aimed correctly.
x2 on the lights, 10k are way too overkill.. personally, i wouldn't go any higher than 6k.. I know somebody who had 8k (55w i think) and i honestly hate driving towards them at night..

Well, it'* a good thing I don't live near you, so you won't be a cause of my rage.

I'm not sure how on the Bonne, but I had to do it on my 01 Camaro. To do that one I had to pull the radio, and then take the senor out that way. The Bonne may be similar.

No, I didn't do that write-up, but the write up did come from here. Somebody from here wrote it. I just took that picture because there was conflicting info on how to properly set the jumper.

Well, you learn something new every day. lol


To disable them on my Century, I only had to wire in a resistor across the wires at the bcm that go to the sensor. My car has 2 sensors, so even with one shorted, it would still get a reading from the other.

I dunno if the Bonne has multiple sensors. I know the one on the dash. I never really looked into. No point really because I'm not one of those people who starts my cars and begins driving right away. I like all the fluids to begin flowing before I move. By that time, my HIDs are warmed up to sunlight anyway.

I know how the color spectrum works. What our posts were talking about were not how bright they were, but how the color of them hurts others eyes.

4300k/5000k is the best you can put in your car. Most light output, doesn't hurt others eyes, safest to dive with.

The higher you go in the color spectrum (8000k+), the lights begin to be useless. Your headlights where I'm from would be just a giant waste of money as I wouldn't be able to see more than 10 feet of so in front of me.

I have 4300k in my car, and imho, its the best money i've spent on my car so far. I have them in the stock housings (I've been trying to get the money to pick up an extra set of headlights and some projectors to do a retrofit), but have only had one person high beam me since I got them in march.
