I'm going to give you a piece of advice that some on here will take issue with. If you have to depend on your car, every day, all day, rain or shine, do not, repeat DO NOT modify anything. Read all about the mods, and then read where something is broken, and how do I fix it?

+1 I agree, but what fun would that be

My car has quite a lot of mods and in 9 years of ownership it has never left me stranded. I think the caveat is more along the lines of 'if you're going to modify your car, don't do a [email protected] job of it'.

If you are going to do the HID conversion, use OEM and not aftermarket. Its more expensive, but you probably won't get punched out by someone that you blinded while using a retro kit.

Exactly. In addition to doing the work right with quality materials and methods, one of the keys to making a project go off without a hitch is to think of the ways in which disaster could strike, then figure out how to deal with these circumstances should they arise - have certain tools/safety gear on hand, keep extra fasteners and other small parts, have my mechanic on speed dial, etc.

I followed these instructions. The Angel Eyes look great and I've had no problems except for once when one side went dim. After inspection, it turned out I missed soldering one connection. Go slowly and carefully and everything should be fine. If this is done correctly, it shouldn't affect anything else on your car.
