A little tip for night photog.. never use the on-camera flash. It always looks weird. Just set a long enough exposure (if your camera has that ability) and take in as much natural lighting as you can.

Oh I assume you had your Hi's in that 2nd to last photo.

You may get flamed on for having HIDs in a halogen reflector by other members but have you considered doing a retrofit? I know they dont have any Aftermarket projectors for your 3rd gen yet. Here is my retrofit that I've done about 3 months ago and I love them!

You can always get EDM headlights from Germany. They get HID options over there. Lucky bastards

[facepalm] We flame because it's improper and makes you look cheap. HID Projector Retrofitting has gotten so freakin easy over the past year or so, yet people still go for cheap kits. You don't even need to cut the reflector bowls anymore!

He's correct. Projector hids are getting easier to install now. My retrofit was almost drop in. I just had to shave off some of the reflector bowl to fit it. It may cost the same price as buying cheap aftermarket projector lights but the outcome far exceeds anything else under $400.

I used to have HIDs in reflector housing and aimed them real low. To be honest, halogens had more usable light than HIDs.
