Purple headlights

What do you guys think about switching my blue headlights for purple on my blue xi? It's my fab color (ps im a girl) is it too cheesy? I was also thinking about the emblems I've seen some purple ones on eBay. I wish my car was white or black it would look so much better....

You guys need to shut the hell up, how can the concept of a girl be so foreign to you?

Scarey question for a lot of these guys. Seriously, it's nice to have a woman on these forums since its so rare. Let's see what the car looks like and offer CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

What constructive criticism is there? If she wasn't a girl, you'd be all over this like white on rice. Remember the dude who spray painted his brake calipers baby blue? He was laughed out of here. Now someone wants purple headlights and emblems and it's ok? There is NO, repeat NO, reason to have purple headlights. They are dimmer, have less range, worse beam pattern, distracting to other drivers, and most likely illegal to have anyway. Not to mention you look like an idiot with them on your car. The ones you have now are not blue, they are white and they are white for a reason and not just because it was the chief engineer's favorite color.

Girly is having a handbag for every outfit, painting your room pink, and hello kitty posters. Purple headlights are both illegal and unsafe.

Fellas, we seriously needs a better game plan when welcoming girls

E46kitten, I'd stick with your original headlights, mostly for style reasons but also safety. Personally, I think blue can be a great body color with clear corners, yellow headlight bowls, etc. Look around these forums and get some inspiration

You're right you can do whatever you want but you posted up the question...and this was my answer.

Also, painting it purple and calling it barney is not illegal. Having purple headlights is illegal. Also, having a blue light displayed to the front, rear, or sides on anything other than an emergency vehicle is also illegal in every state.
