Do the headlight's come with everything needed to install (outside of the bulbs) and do the side view mirrors need painting?

sorry for doing this 7thGenVillain, i know youre trying to make money but....

for the love of god, DO NOT BUY THESE HEADLIGHTS. they are made for RIGHT HAND DRIVE and you will be blinding all of oncoming traffic! not to mention these are HID reflector lamps, so you dont get the nice colorful and sharp cutoff lines as you do with HID projectors.

actually he is correct but you know u can always point the beam downwards and avoid blinding people and plus depending on which hid system u get it comes out better.

You can aim it down, but then you're not going to be able to see much of anything on the right side - essentially making pitiful use of an awesome hid system.

you don't have to adjust the right side so much that you wont see anything on that side. People have done the modification + adjustments(i think) to their inspire lights with a lot of success.

7thGenVillian and Sick6Speed both have them and have posted their 'beam patterns'

Really. Do you mind posting up a link because there's none posted in their gallery.

looking closer it looks like the left side is a little higher than the right.

This was his answer to if his lights blinded others from this thread: http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...7&page=3&pp=30

I thought he had posted what his beam pattern looked like but that doesn't look like the case. My bad.

Yeah, neither of them have posted it. That link only shows Inspire foglights and ebay projectors.

7thgenvillian does not have the inspire headlights. He has the aftermarket projectors, which he is trying to sell btw.

keep in mind that if you do buy the inpire headlights, you will still need a pair of ballasts (hella makes quality ones), D2R HID bulbs since its a reflector housing (phillips or osram are quality) and a wire harness to wire the HID directly to your battery. thats another few hundred.

how much are "inspire" mirrors compared to tsx mirrors? aren't they the same? i've read that tsx mirrors fit on an accord, so i hope you didn't get ripped.
