    Hi, I thought of this more a styling issue but feel free to move the post

    Im looking to upgrade to HID's but i'm unsure if i should keep the side lights the standard yellow to give it a oem look?
    does anyone have any pics of their HID's?

    If your sidelight is in the same cluster then go white LED. If its in the cluster next to the headlight then i'd keep it halogen. Looks more better, white/blue can sometimes (most of the time) make a car look cheap and they're shite in the daytime you can't tell their on.

    the sidelights are in the same unit as the main dipped beam. so its better to keep the halogen sidelights? im thinking of getting halo's installed and 2 minded about them too
