HID kits

My nephew keeps telling me how I should get an HID kit to put on our mustang to make our headlights brighter. I tell him it's a waste of money. Opinions?

Re: HID kits

I've heard they are kinda pricey. I don't know if I could justify that much money on some headlights personally.

I've got 10k HIDs with projector headlights and it's honestly a completely different experience driving at night. I see everything if you live around deer or really anything that can run out in front of your car it's exponentially safer than stock and if price is the issue eBay is always an option got my HIDs and projector headlights for under 200 and I bought special ones so they were more expensive but completely worth it for nighttime visibility

Very clean I like it! my car looked alot like that not too long ago (different color)
I will say the biggest appearance enhancer I found for our model cars is simply lower it down a couple inches not sure what they were thinking putting as much wheel gap as a f150 in their mustangs lol but it annoyed the he'll out of me that I could put my whole shoe between the wheel and the well and not touch anything... I dropped mine two inches roughly all the way around and it now looks much better but suspension gets expensive... But it also makes corners more fun and more safe

Ha ha that reminds me of my first idea for my car I thought it would be hilarious to put like a four inch lift and massive muffin tires on it and stick a big sticker on the back window that says my pony rolls in the mud god knows the gts have enough power ... Just need a 4x4 conversion lol

Lowering kit is ordered. We went with 1 1/2 in kit because of our driveway. And probably will be getting the HIDs tomorrow or Saturday. I can't wait for car shows to start here in PA!

Re: HID kits

they make driving at night much brighter, but the downside is the headlight housings your car came with are NOT made for these style of headlights so... you can end up blinding traffic etc plus they are not technically legal~

you can retrofit a HID projection setup so the lights work correctly but you are looking at 700 dollars or more and no one makes one (that looks good) so its a custom job. The aftermarket ones look like crap that do this.

This is what I meant by saying I couldn't justify the price of lights, lol. $700+ Eh, I'd rather do some other things to the car.
