help me make a decision

well, its in between getting my windows tinted

or

buying 2 sets of HID conversion kits to convert my hella 500's to HID's and my foglights to HID's, because right now it looks like this

the tinting and the HID's are roughly the same price ($100-150)

im also buying an alarm, hopefully for less than 200 installed, which by searching around on craigslist isnt a problem

what you think?

I would go with HIDS... they would make more of a difference in appearance than tinting...

you know my views on aftermarket (non factory) HIDS. tint: as long as it's legal where you live check your local laws for tint % requirement.

The majority of the people here said tints, your going HIDs. So it seems to me like you were pretty bent on HIDs. Why bother asking then?

SAS! Oh wait... that wasn't a choice.

Haha... I'd say HID's long as your not going to run all of them when driving normally. Jebus... you'd blind everyone with that many HID's. Hehe...

Hahaha exactly, my girl loves that **** too bro. Limo tint does wonders when your lady is with you, trust me she will feel real secure hahaha.

CoughroadheadCough

anyway, get limo all the way around, I've been rolling that way for the past 2 years and no tickets, just be aware of your surroundings and pay attention for cops.
