Default HIDs at night

Going 70mph, no street lights or other cars on the road. I could see the reflectors in-between the lanes for at least 5-8 car lengths in front of me.

It'* like a video game. I've done a lot of late night drives home, and it'* a freak driving and not seeing any other cars. I've already drove over 7 miles without seeing a single car.

I drove one night and didn't see another car in so long I thought, I could open it up and just fly. shortly after that my radar detector went off at 100%. There was a state cop hiding, didn't even see him until I was right next to him, and he would have had me.

Its worth it. You can most likely get aftermarket headlights with projectors for your Monte too. A lot easier than having to retrofit.

idk no one has found any aftermarket headlights for the montes but the black housing ones which i cant decide if i want them or not. but lots of people on the forum are buying the HID kits for the daytime lights, foglights, & high beams but idk it sounds hella expensive & i'm trying to save up for an intercooler system first lol
