After HIDs...

Now that my HIDs are in, the hyperwhite corner and turn signal bulbs pale in comparison - they look totally yellow. What looks good next to the bright white/blue of the HIDs? I was thinking amber might look good, but what else?

Go with PIAA's

either the Xtreme White Plus bulbs or the Super Platinums

Do a search on ehre to see what other people with HID's have used, most likely its PIAA.

Re: After HIDs...

I second the PIAAs. I have the Xtreme Whites in my corners. They are the closest match to my HIDs. Plasma Blue, the next "whiter" bulb in the chain is too blue and ricey looking IMO.

After HID's just put in Amber bulbs, they will make your car look classy and expensive at night.

Yeah even if you try to match the bluish/white color of your hid's it will cost you a lot of money. So I suggest you go with amber color. I have this setup and it looks great.

Yes I'm for sure going to the CO meet. We should meet up even if you can't go to the meet, I'd love to see your car, it looks bad-ass from your sig. Plus, I'd be happy to take that carbon fiber intake off your hands. Let me know if you can make it

Once you get HIDs the best thing to do is get EDMs and do away with the white running lights - EDMS only use 1 bulb per side (amber turn signal bulb).

This set up looked amazing on my Sedan....

They are rather hard to find as not many people have them and you can only get them in Europe. These were factory originals in Europe. Occasionally forum members have them for sale. I sold mine about 2 weeks ago since I bought a coupe. Whitelegend also just recently sold a set.

To see what they look like, check out whitelegend's for sale post:
