    I have Morimoto hids and it’s been giving me problems after having it worked well for a couple of years.

    When I turn the hids on, it does not ignite. After driving for about 5 minutes or more then it decides to turn on.

    Weird

    I’ve had my DDM hid kit for over two years and still running. I’m just swapping the lens to Morimoto clear lens.

    If you are doing that, you might as well get the Morimoto retrofit projectors, if they still sell them. Then you won't have to worry about blocking the squirrel finder cutouts on your oem projectors.

    I bought it off of Amazon and its a Prime item so you get free one-day shipping! Just look up EZ lip and it will pop up. There is an original and a 'pro' version.. The pro version is 54 vs 35 for the original.

    I don't have one, but maybe I can answer your question from experience with other "visual" changes to a car's engine at a smog inspection place. Rule of thumb from a visual standpoint, "if it ain't stock, it won't pass". The technicians are certified by the state of California and everything in the engine compartment should be stock from the get go.

    Should pass smog. Although my Prius is stock under the hood.... my truck passes smog in Cali and has cold air and Borla exhaust. I have a programmer for different tunes depending what gas I use even e85.

    Took the Prius to West End Alignment today. Had Chris adjust the height, camber and alignment. I love the stance now.
