Also what's the difference between the 3five and the 5five?

Let me try to answer everything.

Those lights do look awesome, and it would be SICK on my car. I just wanted it basic for less things that could possibly go wrong. My lights look like they could be stock. I guess....

Anyways, I would scuff the plastic and use an etching primer. The etching primer is for metal and probably plastic. When I did the quarter panels of my old car, I sandblasted them back down to redo them. The sand cut right through the clear and the paint but when it got down to the etching primer that stuff was like fused on and took forever to blast off. Good stuff.

Morimoto 3five is 35w and 5five is 55w. That's the only difference. To anyone who hasn't ordered yet if you want maximum brightness go 4300k or 5000k. I noticed a huge difference in brightness from the 6000k to the 4300k I got. I also got the upgraded xb bulbs when I got 4300k.

Here is my 6000k bulbs. They were always bluish.

My 4300k bulbs start off blue for about 15 seconds then go to a very nice white.

plus they still give off a wonderful purple and blue color at the top of the beam because I modded the lens fitment a little bit with some washers.



4300k is an obvious win!
