Im thinking about installing after-market HID's and I wanted to know if they will still have the same "instant on" look that the factorys do, when you turn them on.

Hope everyone knows what im talking about :klavergreg:

Depends on how long it takes to warm up. Usually its 5-20 seconds, so maybe. Factory setups are unique (and aren't using halogen projectors), so the nice looking flicker (light looks like purple then blue then white, etc, etc) you see on bmws, cadillacs, etc won't be there, but it will be still be a nice solid blue looking colour.

Yeah mine take a couple of seconds to warm up, as Stephanie said when they haven't completely warmed up things look bluey to me hehe. I have 6000k HIDs btw.

ALL HID bulbs.....factory or not take a few seconds to get their optimum operational temperature and brightness.
