    I like the wheels. Did you do the HID install? If so, did you use a relay or wire directly to the Prius lights?
    Thanks.

    Looking good. What % tint are on the front? Those look really dark for being in the bay area. Any problems with the police?

    any chance of a pic of the hub caps in the light? Did you buy them or do it yourself?

    What temp are the HID bulbs? They look very blue, best to never go higher then 6K & for better visible light to stay at 5K or less. :)

    Very hard to see the hubcaps in the night pics.

    I agree with the above comment. 6000k+ just screams noob ricer. :)

    I would have to disagree on that one. I had the same color on my old car, and while it is true that below 6000k is going to give you the best visability, the loss is not that much in compared with the 8000k, the main difference is the look.

    6000k and below looks more like OEM HID

    8000k looks after market... if it IS aftermarket, and you went through the trouble of modding it... I don't see the problem in being different.

    I draw the line there though because varying too far from 6000k say 2000k or 12000k makes your car look like a noob ricer and you have horrible visability lol.

    Almost all OEM HIDs/LEDs look white and 6000k has a rather blue hue so I'd say not even close. 5000k max would be more like it.
