Default Need advice on new mods!

Hello,

Well first off, I have an 01' Limited Edition PT w/ around 70,000mi on it. Beside the fact that Midas/Belle Tire told me I needed new Shocks, struts, lower control arm bushing, rotor and brake pads I want to get some decals done to my car!

First off, I want those luxurious looking blue Xenon lights for all front end lights (Low Beams, High beams, fog lights). I have been looking and looks like H.I.D lights are the ones to get, but they are a little pricey, any other substitute for the same look? Brand? Link if possible??

Second, I want to get those headlight covers...the 'Smoked' look. Should I go to my local tint place and get them done, or buy the headlight case itself?

Any help is much appreciated!

For the lights, check out Sylvania's line of Ultra Bright replacement bulbs. You can get the number of the bulbs you need from your owners manual.

The smoke headlight covers be be illegal in your state. Better check the laws. Also, most of them aren't the kind that will pop on and off everyday when it gets dark so you can see down the road. If you plan on keeping them on at night, why go to the expense of looking for the blue lights?

Thanks Crewzin.

I did buy some headlights that costed me $45/pair but boy are they what I was looking for!

The smoked headlight cover - Their not illegal here in Michigan...well they may be but I see a lot of people that have them. I just decided not to do them because quite frankly it'd be a waste of money.

I'll be going back to the shop to get my high beams and fog lights !
