the **** are you talking about? hid's are designed for projectors only...there fore no glare or blinding of any kind should be happening i. lifetime warranty is great... i paid 200 bucks for my lows and highs. guess what i will never again have to buy another set of headlights or ballasts for the car. and not all kits are "all the same" 25w 35w 55w... some are digital. hid's don't belong in halogen housings. i know people who buy those cheap kits guess what the turned around and picked up the nicer kit. buy **** once

FYI Subaru put HIDs in the 04/05 STI and 2014 Forester XT Touring, neither has projectors. Subaru cray, though.

I have the low beam Xenon but I want to work on the highs I might just go with them again there pretty nice slim ballasts so they don't take up much room

Save up for the lightbar. It will blow the PNP HIDs in a halogen housing away. I can demo my SR 10 if you like.
P.S. The lightbar is "instant on". No waiting for ballasts to ignite salts in a glass ball filled with xenon gas.

I'm excited for spring!

It was actually nice on the roads today!

I've got some new goodies on order, and a lot that are already here for the 95 project car and the Leggy. I'm not going to divulge info until they are installed. I just can't wait to get it all in the works! I'm overflowing with excitement I can barely contain myself!

I finally got my amps and subs wired in completely. Its not going to win any audio competitions, but it really fills the space with quality sound. I forgot what it like.

It's comprised of a Kenwood Excelon deck, 2 Rockford Fosgate 10" Punch subs in a custom built box, a Rockford Fosgate amp to power those, and another Rockford Fosgate amp for powering my component speakers.

This system was built by Street Sounds for, and taken out of, my old 2.5rs. Been in storage ever since. The whole set up cost a mint back in the day. Luckily the Legacy has the same trunk structure, and the box fits in there perfectly.

never have i had a cheap HID kit go out on me. well there was one time were the ballast fell from where i mounted it behind the bumper and dragged across the road til it fell off but that was user install error. but then again, ive never owned the same car long enough to know how long they lasted haha

Nice! I too installed stereo equipment this past weekend. 6x9's are behind the rear headrest where the crap oem 6" used to be and installed new 6" door speakers. All powered by an Alpine amp. I can now enjoy listening to Skrillex!
