I've been hearing good things aobut getting the made for Legend HID kit. Does anyone on this forum have them. If so, do you like them, how much did they cost, and how difficult were they to install? Thanks in advance!

I got mine from www.Autolamps-online.com as part of the group buy and I must say its the best mod I've done so far.

Yes, I would say that this is one of the best mods for the car and the hardest part for this job is the drilling and the removal of the battery(hey, it's hard for weak little asians like me, ok?) to have more space to work around. Go for them if you have the $$, especially because they've just lowered their price = )

The Kelvin number refers to the color of the bulb, not the brightness. The Ultinons at 6000K are actually rated at less lumens than the regular 4100K bulbs (I think 2800 lumens vs. 3200 lumens). It's like aftermarket blue halogen bulbs. The bluer you get (highter Kelvin temp), the less light is actually produced because of the blue coloring on the bulb filtering light, so many aftermarket bulbs have higher wattage to make up for this.

I have generic 6K bulbs with Philips ballasts. $540. The color is awesome. Slightly blue. But the beam pattern could be better.

As for your gas mileage, are you going mostly highway or streets? When was the last oil change?

bad gas mileage

its mostly mixed driving maybe even more highway then streets...........i dont know when the last oil change was i just bought the car about 2 weeks ago. does not having your oil changed affect mileage?? what else could affect it and make it that low?? because i thought the legend is supposed to give 19 mpg in CITY driving!! like i said mine is mixed driving and more highway too.............i have even been trying to drive it extra easy and slow, and accelerating slow.................and with THAT im getting 16 i think....................dang somebody help please............

16 is not unusual for the our legend, the most I can get is 20. The legend is a gas guzzler for a car it's size.
