Very very nice. I've been waiting to see your seats and the wait was worth it; those look so comfy I want to fall asleep in them! Wheels look great; everything looks really well done. Thanks for posting.

Your car looks great. How bad is the glare with the HIDs?

Thanks for the complements. the Clazzios are much higher quality than i expected. very comfortable and more than i could have wished for.

the glare is pretty bad. i aimed them way down so i won't blind people as badly.. but i still get high-beamed by oncoming traffic. i have a morimoto retrofit kit i need to get around to installing

some more pics from this past weekend:

There's a reason why they're not offered for the car: they don't fit.

Lots of work was done to make them fit. Front fenders rolled and pulled 1/2", front fender liners cut, rear fenders rolled, rear fender liners cut. I still rub a little when i hit a bump and my wheel is turned.

You HID's must be 6000k. There isn't much light. I had 6000K in my 08 Accord coupe for a month. I was at a light when a 03 BMW 330 Coupe pulled up next to me. Stock 4100k put my 6000k to complete shame as if my DRL were on. I then decided to go with 5000k to give me a close to stock look with a touch more white. I think my next kit will be 55watts vs. the normal 35. The FIT's head light lenses don't seem to "scatter" the light like clusters years past. But i digress...

Other than not a fan of the "slammed" look, you have a very nice car. You reminded me to order my Clazzio tonight ;-). Enjoy the car bro.

They are definitely 4300k--considering i ordered and installed them myself. You can also see the pure white color (no hint of blue or any other color except white). The reflector bowl is too large and isn't designed for HIDs, so the light diffracts and bounces all over. I've had a Morimoto retrofit kit i've been meaning to install. Just haven't had the time yet.

Thanks for the complements, though!
