How do you shut off your drls though? Do i have to go to the stealership?

OK so when I turn off my day time lights, does that mean I have to turn them on manually via that swich. Or will I not be able to use them again?

Once you disable the drl's, they're only used as high beams.

Notice the LED turn signals that I got? I think you should get some of those for your front and rear, unless you are planning to get LED tails. They come in amber and they are sexy As for the fogs get HIDs, it will match really well with your stock Xenons and halos.

You will need a HID conversion which is very simple if done properly. It took Matt from Umnitza all but 5 mins to install and made me look like a You can ask anyone that had it done, and they can attest to all the head turns. I usually just drive with my HID fogs on with the halos. That way people can notice the halos more and its still safe because the HIDs are still blinding.

I think there is a DIY for the halo installs on the forums, as far as the warranty goes for the HID fogs I don't think it should be a big issue. Because the prolumen HIDs itself comes with a lifetime warranty and even if it does void the warranty it won't void the entire thing, just the part that covers the fogs. Not like installing fogs ever affected engine performance or break your ecu. Although I have been wrong before .

I already have 6000k chromiums with factory xenons. Im thinking about upgrading my xenons and fogs. How would 6000k chromiums from Umnitza look with 8000k headlights and 8000k fogs? Please help.. with pictures too!
Thanks.

Also, would 6000k headlights and fogs have looked better with 8000k chromiums?

Thanks a lot
