Can't see your vid man. Did you custom fit bulbs for this or can you just buy the set up?

Installed my new header panel, grille, bumper, and headlights. Have to soak my foglight bolts in WD40 before I can reinstall them. I gotta figure out something with my front bumper, my tires STILL rub. Picked up a drop-in K&N and picked up an Optima red top. That's it. I'm done spending money for awhile.

Edit: my phone was being screwy, looks nice I really like it. Is it cool to flick an hid ballast on and off for only a couple seconds like when maneuvering and stuff? I thought they didn't like that

What's the check engine light on for?

Thanks bro!
Ahh, well it lessens the life of the bulbs more than the ballasts, but it wont affect it as much as headlights in my opinion. My reverse lights will be on no longer than 20 seconds so it should last.
My civic i had in high school blew bulbs within a year because i ran it day time and all to be oily, haha...but the ballasts lasted another 2 years until i sold the car.

Yeah in my experience with hids I've noticed replacing the bulbs every year doesn't hurt because they really tend to lose their impact over time anyways

my tint is 5% over 5% so this works for me. within 5 seconds it'll outshine those LEDs, i can wait a bit.
plus the total was only 20 bucks.
