can you even see with the 10k bulbs? seems very unpractical.

yea actually they look great but look better on my 08 300 as the housings are more clear. Gonna fix that soon. But yea they look killer and put out a ton of light. Im strictly 10k will not change. I've tried 6,8 and like these best.

check out this video. each video is a small step in the painting/ restore/ prep process.

watch them all and that should help out a lot

watching these makes me want to just re do my bumpers myself so bad

I did mine by hand with spray cans, if you're painting a whole bumper, I'd get a paint gun and compressor

^ I got a spare set too. That's the only way to go if you want to take your time and make sure you do it right.

Well i got bored and was sick of looking at all the nice black housings on here. Im in the process of doing it right now. Got em split and letting the paint dry. I went with semi gloss black. Thinking of taking the low beam light restriction thing off, but dont know the cons if any(besides blinding ppl with my hid's). Will post up when finished

I'd say that's a pretty big con. Not to mention the light will scatter like crazy.

What is it with you n00bs and looking for cheap wheels? Geez, it's like, the new intake thread...

But the last set looks nice. Too bad they don't come in 18"

Take a look at the Evoke C8s. Those are 18".

Actualy, I don't think those C8s are the right lug patter. You should look for some wheels localy because the shipping is gonna rape you pretty hard.

That was a bit much but I feel your pain, you're working with what you have, but please take this to one of the 100 wheel threads from the last month and stop hijacking my projects thread, we actually had people posting projects for once
