In Reply to: I'm assuming aftermarket HID's (more)... posted by M5 LITE on July 03, 2000 at 13:24:22:
: I'd just like to know, which ones did you get, where did you get them, how much did you pay and lastly, are you satisfied with them (besides the MID warning)? Do other drivers flash you becasue they are being blinded (cutoff not being agressive enough with standard relectors)? How is the color compared to OEM Xenon HID's?
: Sorry for all of these Q's, but I'm on the fence about buying the real thing (I have JIMMY's Xenon look-alike bulbs - as good as they are, they aren't bright as the real thing, the color is perfect though). TIA
I understand how you feel about paying up for BMW Xenons; I felt the same way until I started driving with them (2000 528i). The increased visability probably saved me from hitting a deer about three weeks after I took delivery of the car. For my tired old eyes, the extra margin of safety is "worth it".
I do occasionally have others flashing me, especially on two lane roads. Good luck/Ken
