They have whole cars...you strip whatever you want from the cars.
That stuff looks quite expensive. Also, at night nothing screams "pull this ricer kid over" like HIDs in a 20 year old beater Civic. At least it promises not to glare and seems to have enough equipment/cost to deliver on that promise...not sure it truly would but it could.
Yeah That is true. I am going to take a look at the junkyard for future. Thanks!
Also on the HIDs, yeah that is true. The high beams are great. It's just the low beams that could use some work.

The lights are so good on that car that I never even bother with the hi-beams. The thing I like best is that they REALLY illuminate both sides of the road incredibly, which is fantastic for spotting deer. In the past, I relied on driving lights for that "wider" illumination. I honestly don't know what Audi did to make their headlights so good. Our MDX has HID Xenons with projector lenses just like the Audi, but they don't even compare....not sure why though. Maybe its in the aiming.
My 4Runner with the modded bulbs is pretty decent, but I run with the factory driving lights on all the time. In fact, I wired the driving lights to stay on when I use the hi-beams. And considering that my driving lights use the same bulbs as my headlights, I effectively have 6 hi-beam bulbs blasting away when my hi-beams are switched on.
I must say that I have driven my parents 02 focus and those have the best headlights I have seen. The low beams on the car are perfect and the high beams have great aim and are perfect for length. The thing that sucks is that the low beams turn off and the highs cast a shadow on the road sometimes which catch me off guard.
So you have something similar where you have wired up the lows, highs and driving lights? How is it for dimming?
