NEED HELP!!! Different color lights

Hey people,

So i have a problem, All my lights are pretty much different colors and it makes my car look err...

1. I have CCFL angel eyes (white)
2. I have LED 1156 white light for my corners
3. I have Hyper white PIAA light bulbs for my (NON projector) headlights and fogs

** with all these, they all give off a different white and it doesnt look too good. I was thinking about getting 8000k HID's, will this help lessen the distinction or increase it?

If i smoked out the front with like 70-85%, will it help blend it better?

Please help.. thanks

well.. just fyi, if you decide to get 8000k hid for your low beam... it'll be more blue-ish more that white... i'd stick with 6000k hid, to match up the halos better, and smoking the corners will help blend in your corner in my opinion, but i like to keep things clean, so smoking corners wouldn't be top of my list...

there is a thread here about corner led, and his corner and hid matched up pretty good.. maybe you can contact him and see what he did.. hoped i helped...

In order to match them up, you need to know what color temperature your CCFL angel eyes are as well as the rest of the bulbs. Post a picture of your lighting setup and I can help you identify the correct matching color temperature.

^^ try not shooting directly in front of the car.. a slight angle would help.. also turn off your flash...
