uh... one on top of the windshield wiper fluid container, and one on the driver side of the radiator "support".

there's a piece of metal there that if you clean it, and mount it, it is out of the way and fits perfectly.

i copied of some guy who did his on scionlife. you should check it there.

yeah, I used to have blue LED bulbs in my headlights about a year ago, but an effin' local cop stopped me and made me remove them...

All my interior bulbs are blue, though...

superbrightleds.com swears up and down they are cool white and not blue but I will see when I hook them up. They are rated at 55 lumen each so they should be pretty bright.

starting at 8K is blueish... i have 5 K hid's... white... noon sun white.

6K has a tinge of blue. they call 6k "diamond white".

8 K starts the blue. 10 K bluer. 12 K blue with tinge of purple. The higher you get, the closer you go to purple.

counterwise, 4300K is stock. yellowish white.

3000K is yellow. 1000K is red. No need for anything that extreme. i think legally you can have 3K to 8K before you have legality issues.

Wow, I just ordered my HIDs on Thursday over my lunch hour, and they arrived in Saturday morning's mail - only two days to get them!

Now I got some work to do...!

No, not yet - and I might not get them in until perhaps this coming Sunday afternoon, if at all this week. I have a car show to get ready for on Saturday (don't need the HIDs installed for a daytime show!) and I also have a movie night Thursday to show AVATAR in my theater to a small crowd, so that will tie up another evening as well... I'll let you know once I get them in!

Did you mount yours with bolts or did you just use the double-sided tape included in the kit to mount your ballasts? I'm sure the tape won't last long in the engine compartment...

I just ordered a new set of HIDs from HIDExtra.com, shipping was extremely fast, got here in 2 days, I should be installing them in a few days.

i used the double adhesive. It seems to be holding well after probably 30+ hours of engine run time, including non stop running from 6 pm friday afternoon to 2 am saturday morning (fire calls, most of it engine idle).

It's been quite hot in there, but they seem to be holding strong still.

hidextra.com, Bi-xenons (both high and low beam HID) with our $17 discount code... the single beam HIDs are less, $50-something, aren't they, Joe?

the lo/hi xenon/halogen low beam/high beam ones are $80 before the code i think. or $85.

the bi-xenon (high and low beam are the same bulb) are $105 before the codes. check out "scion owners!!!" on facebook and click on their links for coupon codes for $18 bucks off!!!
