Question To buy or not to buy

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3AIT&viewitem=

I didn't want to spend money on a hid kit and was wondering if these lights would do any harm to the car.

I'm no fan of colored bulbs. The price is nice, but you get what you pay for. If your looking for that "HID" look then get HIDs.
