Took some new pictures. It's been snow+freezing rain+thick fog, therefore the car is very dirty.

Correct,especially in bad weathers(rain, snow, and fog) because yellow color has better penetration through water. Though I understand many people are not big fans of this color.

They are relatively inexpensive, only 250CND(no tax :lol:), made by (not "in" anymore;) ) China, a Chinese company started to export their products to Canada only recently. I bought them from a company sales man at Toronto, and paid 60CND for installation at a garage I know of.

The quality of the HID kit in general is excellent, but I can easily tell that it is not so delicate as those made in Japan and South Korea. Well, way cheaper, though. I have no money, and it does the job.:p

Need more infor?

Yellow is the EURO and JDM look now.






60 for installation of a complete HID kit is pretty cheap since the norm is about 100. But if you have time it would have took you less than one hour to DIY it.

here are how my sister's MK4 look like with 5300K lows and 3000K fogs in her projectors

see how yellow that light is? PISS YELLOW Lol!!

see how white the 5300K are compared to the 3000K
