JDM Itasha Cars Will Turn You Into an Anime Fan (Lancer Evo Edition)

The almighty Mitsubishi Lancer EVO. Once Subaru’s biggest rival and now an extinct breed.

Get Rid of Halogen With HID Conversion Kit

Newer luxury cars nowadays come standard with HID headlights, with a classy xenon white pair of headlights and a crisp cut-off line. It seems that HID headlamps are synonymous with luxury now and many people opt to go the aftermarket route with an HID xenon conversion kit. This handy kit is the most sure-fire way to increase the output of your car’s headlights or fog lights so you can have better visibility at night.

The HID Conversion Kit has a set of the most advanced ultra slim digital ballasts and a very straightforward installation process so that you can have a hassle-free installation. You can give your car a luxurious look without having to pay the full sticker price for an expensive European or Japanese car. Once you make the switch, you’ll kick yourself and wonder why you didn’t make the switch earlier. The ultra slim digital ballasts regulates the electrical current via embedded electronic chip so that the current is stable at all times. These ballasts have a reverse polarity protection system that greatly reduces installation related issues and improves the lifespan of your headlights.

The best time to get an HID Conversion Kit is when there is a sale! There are a bunch of bulb sizes available as well as their complementary sizes.

Each package includes:
2 x Xenon HID Light Bulbs
2 x 35w Ultra Slim Digital HID Ballasts
