I ran cool blues in my Bonneville, for some reason i figured the glass would filter out most of the silverstar look, i have the Silver Stars in my Alero, i love it, WAY brighter, made a huge diffrence on the highway at night.
Fuddy'* HID converson is amazing, you could cook a hotdog on a stick infront of his headlights im sure!!

The HID on my tractor could roast the whole pig, but i'm not spended that money on my car.


I don't want to install driving lights because it is so inconsiderate of other drivers. If i install driving lights, can i rig them to run ONLY with the brights?

If your driving lights are aimed right, it'* not a problem for oncoming cars. I RARELY get flashed with brights from oncoming cars, even with the 100W H3'*.

Rig them to come on with brights only? Sure. You need a relay. Cut the 12V feed to the lights, and run that through a relay. Put a seperate source of power through the normally open contacts of the relay when it'* energized. This keeps them off when the low beams are on. Now when you switch to high beams, and the ALM drops power to the fogs (like it does on every car except mine ), it'll energize the lights when the highs switch on.

Elementary, my Dear Watson. You just made a relay into an inverter.

Mine are fresh from the '80s.. work like ****, but they work . You guys are talking about 100watt bulbs.. I am probably looking at a 5watt book light.

Corners and headlights are not interchangeable.
