I am completely and utterly satisfied with mine, they were everything I expected both in the look it creates and the increased light output. :P
Where'd you get them? I'd love to get them in blue.
BTW, your car rocks...it'* possibly the sweetest looking Bonnie I've ever seen, honestly. Nice job.

I forgot to ask - does your SLE have a lamp monitor? Do the HIDs have an effect on the lamp monitor? Does it say that the headlamps are burned out or anything like that?

If you didnt disable your DRL dont get the HID'*. All the companies that I know or dealt with all say the same thing. You will mess up the Ballasts and it wont be covered under the warranty for those that have them.

I've never had a problem with the DRL and HID combo, they didnt run dimmer either with DRL. I finally got around to disabling the DRLs though. The only problem I have is in winter, sometimes one light wont come on. I found out though, it is a voltage issue and that the light wont come on, or it will turn off, if there is a irregularity in the voltage. It pays to read up in the instructions.
