Jes, I am stangless. I will either do something stupid and remedy the situation too soon or I'll be smart and wait and save up for something really nice.
Here is a pic of the HIRs. The cutoff is the HIDs but those two really freaking bright spotlights on the garage are the hi beams with the 9011 bulbs.
Yes, halogens as bright as a higher end aftermarket HID kit... head explode.
Edit: There is no blue film or anything to achieve that pure white either, they are just really goddamn bright.
