Default H.I.D. Conversion question

Has anybody put HID's on their Reno?

I'm curious, will they work with the low-level running lights or will there be problems??

Thanks for any and all help.

I have a HKB 4500K HID kit on Optra (same thing as Forenza). Although my car doesn't have the projector headlights, I love it. Colour is nice and pretty close to white, with a slight tint of blue. They light up the road much better than any halogens. Theres no comparison to those blueish coloured bulbs. We had to disable daytime running lights on mine as there was not enough current on that setting to power them properly. So now my lights are fully manual, only on when I turn them on.

Thought so. I'll just settle for Silverstars. I get an insurance discount for the running lights

So did I... and then disabled them for my silverstars.
The silverstars are ok. I'm just running into the common problem the reflectors seem to have about shining straight forward

LOL you are telling me that you would tell your insurance about your mods? I don't tell insurance shit. The less they know the better.

Yeah... but it maybe worth doing some mods like the suspension which would break easy in an accident but not things like the big brake kit which can't be damaged badly in an accident.

true then again you might be getting a discount for that since there more like safety features better suspension for handleing and bigger brakes for fater stopping depends on how you word it to your insureance agent you get me hmmm got me thinking now to sweet talk my agent (she's a girl so wouldnt really know im doing it to go faster or performance) Nice
