What do you guys think?

Maybe we can get a deal or something, for a mass purchase for the HID's :D

I'll make some inquiries as to where we can get them from....maybe even Mazda dealerships here.

BUT....I've wanting to drive down to WA for the install. I'll see what kind of dealerships are willing to do it.

Here's the verdict guys, and it's not great.

Retrofitting our non-HID housings with the factory housings would number in the thousands, something like up to 2 grand....according to Bruno.

So, it seems the most viable route will be going with aftermarket stuff. Any opinions?

Too bad those Hoen bulbs are tinted blue. Illegal here in Vancouver. :(

the chance of having the police give you a ticket for that is really small, I used to have headlight bulbs tinted purple and still no problem at all :wink:

You don't live in Vancouver, so you wouldn't know.

MANY people here (including me) get "VI's", short for Vehicle Inspections costing upwards of a hundred dollars CAD......all simply because of our vehicle modifications. I had blue bulbs before, and I got ticketed.

It's unfortunate. The police here would rather spend their time setting up roadblocks for these kind of things, rather than patrolling the streets for crooks.

FR3D is in Richmond isn't he? :lol:

Actually IMO some of the luxury cars have headlights that are very very bright, sometimes annoying whether they are behind you or coming on the other side.. i think police should give them tix instead (even though it's not the driver's fault)! :wink: Those M class MB are most bothering since they sit higher and their HID are so bright. Those ones on S2000 change colours..

Sorry off topic..

so is there still a group buy interest?

btw, 2k1_bug, i gotta agree with you, those M-Class just completely blind me whenever they follow me with their HID on! but the S2000 ones change color? I never notice that! :?

There has been some interest over in the Lighting forums...and there seems to be a group buy for Catz lights.
