    All the time...TSX's and TL's have some of the best HID lenses out there. People are ridiculous.

    My other half put them in our snowmobiles. It's amazing how much better they are.

    Shame you don't have Infiniti's... (they and BMW are my favorite car makers.)

    And what is an Acura here is a Honda over in Europe and Japan.

    My car search continued today, with a 1999 Honda Accord V6. Looked amazing until the mechanic told me the transmission fluid was black and the brake line was a danger. My quest shall go on...

    Honda is Acura's parent company.

    My friend bought a set online and put them in his 2010 WRX. The day after he bought the car brand new, he was ripping apart the headlights and putting those lenses in. They really do make a world of difference though. I'd never buy a car that doesn't have HIDs.

    Oh I know...but the Accords and Civic's etc that you see here arent the same there. They're called Hondas over there but they're actually the same cars that we see as Acuras (some of them anyway).

    Yeah. When the cars were still produced only in Japan, they were much better. Years ago, an independent test was done by taking one car, same make and model, from each country's plant - Japan, Canada, and the US. The Japanese-made car was, hands down, the best one. The worst one? The US-made one. Sad...

    My car I own now was made in Japan, thankfully...I've had US built Japanese cars before, it's just not the same. The one I had was at the dealership being fixed more than I was driving it, and I bought it new.

    Same. Once I installed ellipsoids with HID on my previous Bimmer, I could never go back to the crap halogens. Makes me wonder how I survived on them as long as I did.

    One day when I'm rich, I'll have a CTS-V. If I'm not rich, I'll have to settle for an RX-8. It'll be okay either way.

    Is it worth doing that? Someone suggested it to me, but I don't know exactly how it works. I've only gotten cars from private owners, never a dealer.

    It boggles my mind that newer BMW's didn't/don't come standard with HIDs...my Mom has a 2009 328i and she has Halogens. Such a rip off. My 07 G35 has them, and my sisters '10 cheap ass TSX does too.

    I was going to install HIDs in her car myself, like I did with my last one, but it's too much of a hassle...the battery is located in the trunk of the car, the wiring would be such a pain.
