skipped over all the arguing here... but I don't think those bowls are painted blue

looks like the bowls are still chrome, but the bulbs themselves are blue and are reflecting at the right angle into the bowls....

look again:

Everyone decides which camp to associate with. Safety/purity/proper or "DONT CARE ABOUT COPZ LOL CHRIS BROWN MOD FTW LOTSA CAMBER"

Looks like you've made your choice
You keep saying this is dangerous. That's just beyond hilarious.

I'm using stern language with you because that's how you are being with anybody who disagrees with you. I had a perfectly civil tone with you. Then you proceeded to speak in a condescending manner to me.

You are so polarizing. It's ridiculous. I don't even know what to say to you about this. It's been pointed out to you many times. You still fail to see how you come off as a massive dick to anyone who disagrees. Your manner is fine when helping someone fix a problem but god help the man who asks about a mod and gets an answer from you.

Good eye. That's definitely the case. Now OP doesn't have to permanently mod his car to experiment with the look.

I've never cursed or insulted anyone requiring a censor. You are 23 years old and have only been here a few mos. Not sure why you're cursing. You know how these things work. You've been like this lately.

I think anyone who read this thread would agree that my curses (mild ones at that) are less offensive than the condescending tone of your posts and the assumptions you make about people who are interested in this mod.

I dunno, telling someone to ****, you're a ****, etc. etc. isn't exactly Kosher.

Simple question:

Do you believe that telling someone a mod/car part is tacky to be condescending?

Also WDE, please vote on the poll in my sig

Not sure why you're on a streak of defending stupid things lately. It almost seems like an April fool's joke but we're already in May

All of these just reek of the attitude I am annoyed with. If you can't see how insulting those things above are, then that is the problem.

Yes, so we can wait to see how Mango judges each member's opinion. So even if "Okay" got more votes, you'd merely discredit everyone on that side of things. This is called polarization. It is not cool.

No. I did not quote where you said it was tacky, because that isn't necessarily offensive. If you cannot see where you were offensive in this thread, then god help you.

You know I'm really trying to help you here. If you realized how insulting you were to some people, maybe these argument threads wouldn't occur in every thread someone disagrees with you.

You're getting mighty close to being on my ignore list. It takes.. a special kind to get on it. You just can't let this go.

Okay well I tried. I'd be on your ignore list because you know I'm pointing out a character flaw (at least in your internet character). I will at least admit if I'm being a dick. I'm not gonna hold it against you. But I'll probably point it out if you're being insulting.

What i don't get is why you continue to argue with mango? Can't you see it's pointless? Just as the undertray thread, it's not about whether or not you like the mod, it's do you agree with mango? That's what this is about. If you agree with mango, you're cool and can sit at the cool kids table. If not, you go eat your lunch outside.
