    For your reference, Heres a pic of mine with white LED's & 8K HID's. With the headlights on its very hard to see the bulbs in the pics. I have 8K fogs & amber LED 3157's in the turn signals also. IMO the LED's look so much sharper than the stock bulbs.

    The blue looks pretty cool but i agree the white would be even sharper , is it just as simple as a bulb change ?anythings better than the factory yellows look like crap

    I think the OEM HID's & the original peanuts are a good match. To each their own.

    I removed my led parking light bulb and changed to SMT LED halo rings instead.
