Need Help!!Projector lamp (Low Beam)

I am thinking of changing the projector lamp to 10000k because i installed a 8000k hid xenon kit for the fog light and the color doesnt match. but now im stuck on deciding what to get. the back of the the projector, there is a Grey cover that you unlock to get to the lights and that means to me that i cant install a xenon kit on to it cuz its suppose to be covered up....so im just wondering if its possible to install a xenon kit or you can only change the bulb? need reply asap cant wait!!

What do you mean gray cover that you need to unlock? Lots of 2010 owners have installed hid kits with no problems.

Corksport SRI - 35/5% tint - Sumitomo HTR Z - MTX Audio - Lamin-x headlight/foglight film - Part Plaza eyelids - 6000k DDM HID- SR*S Exhaust - Hypertech - Grounded TB - VG Sharkfin Antenna - Mazda Club Of Kansas City

Re: Need Help!!Projector lamp (Low Beam)

being a GT model you should already have xenons in the lowbeams. or is that a seperate package?

It is standard to get Bi-Xenons in a GT but it sounds like Ptrsracing just doesnt like the colour, the stock HIDs are around 4300K or white in color and 8000K to 10000K are more blue.

ARC Shift Knob, 25% Front and 15% Rear Window tinting, Blue LED interior lighting, 6000K HID Headlights, Höen Endurance Fog lights, 6000K LED driving lights, LED reverse lighting, CS SRI intake, Racing Beat Power Pulse Exhaust , VG Sharkfin, 17" Tenzo DC-5 rims Black w/Red Stripe, Royal Purple oil & filter

Yes standard in Canada but in the states youd be surprised of how different the options are. for example from what i heard their sound, nav keyless are all seperate options not like here. I see the differences between canadian cars and US cars all the time at work and I do work for a major car company not a small shop

Your 8-10000k will not be brighter than 4300-6000, it will just be more blue. Your greatest light will be from 4300-6000
