Picked up the car today and I just went out to take some pics. Here's why I didn't think the lows were HIDs to begin with. Yellow tint to the low beams and angel eyes. The low beams look like perhaps 3500k or 4000k temp. Or maybe the angels are hiding the bright whiteness to them. The seller had them listed as halogen. Didn't have time to read manual and look over car very well today but I will tomorrow. It looks great and drove great on the way home.
