Well, with three HID kits, you probably blinded a few dozen drivers and ended up killing another few. When will people understand - HIDs do NOT work if you use it in a reflector lamp designed for halogen bulbs. They will just blind people coming the other way and illuminate everything but the road. God save if you there is fog or rain.

The 8000K+ bling HIDs are also absolutely useless, even in projectors. If you want a high powered halogen low beam, look in the auto lighting thread. Plenty of choice. Bewarned that high power bulbs are bound to melt your plastic reflectors in time.

@s.prashanth : Thats a beautiful looking Civic. Nothing over the top.
A suggestion would be to get the window tints, which would gel really well with the current looks.

Between, you forgot to mention the debadged look among the list of mods done.

Thanks Immortalz, you are right, except making people blind it is of no use, mate I didnt switch all of them on at the same time and anyone who would give dipper I would respect and give it back to him, though there are mercyless drivers on single dark road highways where they come with full beam with 100++ watts of halogen and make you completely blind.

TO surf thread you sometime landing up spending whole day with no luck, is it possible for you to advice me as a quick suggestion and I can go and get it installed, just want something more than 55 watts mate like 80-100 watts will do.

Cheers..

I believe the Philips Rally 90/100 bulbs with a roots wiring kit is the current favorite.

You'll need the following spec bulbs to fit into the holders :

Headlight (low) - 9006 (HB3)
Headlight (high) - 9005 (HB4)

Make sure you get the wiring done from a good specialist or at the dealership if you are cosy with them.

very clean looking car yours. keep it that way mate. the debadged look is fantastic. I'm thinking of debadging my humble black Alto too. I too don't have sunfilm.I like the clean plain glass look of my car. or any car for that matter of fact.

Also the other pics that you see are lower arm struct bar, front strut bar etc, will this help the car in anyway, i mean handling etc, also by installing this will I be able to sort bottming down noise of the civic with 3 people in the back, will the ride be compromised or will it improve.

Everyone's thoughts welcomed.

Thanks
