HID FEELING, Headlight lamps
« on: September 20, 2004, 11:20:51 AM »
Hey everybody.  Does anyone know anything about these.  My visibility at night is not so hot, and would like some improvement.  Thought these might help.

That'd work.

BTW: I'm going to be DT tomorrow. Mind if I stop by and pick up those mats?

they are only ~$12, I'd say go for it.  If you get them and don't like them, then sell them to me. My fog lights are also H7's and I'd love it if they looked more like my HID's.

Yeah, I was supposed to call Greg (ESPN) last week...hmmm, they want me back to do some imaging.
You can probably tell it's been a very high priority since I've not called him yet...Jeff's trying to sell me his '67 Fastback.

the mustang would be a better choice anyway.

My friend Jim still wants to unload his 996 carrera 2 so he can buy a 993 turbo.  anyone want a 996?

Not sure...'cause Tish pretty much nixed the idea right off the bat. I want it bad. I love that style...especially nice and done up.
It's not street legal by any means, but I don't think it'd take much to get it there...lights is about it. It's old enough that it doesn't have to though...
I can find out though.

*sigh*
Unfortunately I already have the two cars and a motorcycle. Going back to three cars and the bike would just be silly living down-town.

I'm actually pretty close to selling the Porsche. *double sigh*

Porsche? Did you say Porsche? PM me...I want one. Don't think I can buy, but I want one. Or don't PM me. I don't care.
I really don't have room for another car. I want a Porsche though.

Wait, it's in your sig. Duh. Tish hate's white cars. Unless it's the other way around...eh. She' probably still hate it. Probably 'cause it's white. Makes sense, her being Native American and all..HA! joke...I should probably edit that out....

lmao! sometimes being hasty with the submit button can get you in big trouble like that ;)

yes, it's very white:

http://www.tw34k.com/porsche.php

Lots of work into it, custom engine built to my specs, dual 44IDE webbers, Bursch exhaust, custom cam, big bore kit, 911R replica rear bumper, 911S front bumper, Alpine tape in dash, 12 disk changer in boot, so many original parts i can't list them... *BIG SIGH* but since I've moved to the mountains I haven't been giving it the attention that it deserves, no... scratch that... HAS TO HAVE.

How's this for hijaking a post :D
Sorry!

Man, I'd love that car. I don't have room for a third and seeing as how I need like a year round ride...not a good choice. Otherwise, I'd have a Datsun, Fastback and your Porsche :P

Yeah, we hijacked this pretty good. Doesn't seem like he's been concerned with it though.

CBTB? What's the word on the lookalikes? Did you get 'em?

I did get them.  They are really sweet.  I was in the process of writing a review and saw that I really didnt know a whole lot about them yet so was going to wait.  They look cool, and the quality of light is great.  Great deal to.  Two bulbs for 20$, as opposed to 15$ a piece for replacement stock  bulbs.  I am way pleased.  Now just need to put the real mods in place.   :lol:
