Default 2013-2014 HID Headlight pics?

Curious if people could post their 13+ hid headlights running. Ive been browsing the forums to find night/day time pics but couldnt. are the LEDs the DLR now or what? If you could post different photos of your HIDs day and night id appreciate it. I do know they got rid of Bi-xenon so im just curious of the look at night.

Thanks!

Anybody? All I can seem to find are halogen photos and no HID. Even day shots would be fine for now.

Yes u are correct the LED strip are the new DLR on '13 forward.... I don't have the HID setup but changed the H11 bulb on my halogens so they "kinda" have the HID effect since the new headlight housing all look like projectors -pics to show tonite-

Hopefully this helps. I just took then now, at dusk with DRLs (LED strip) only and HIDs on (DRLs on too).

Pics don't give it justice, the LED and HID lights are whiter with a jewel-like appearance than what is shown. Also note how yellow the fog lights are and in reality, they're not as yellow.

thanks! i plan on swapping the fogs for the led ones at sewell (if i do get an RX) but ive seen a few rx's with halogen and i was completely turned off by the look so thats why im interested in HID pics.

here ya goes as promised.... halogen bulb replaced with H11 PIAA Astral White/JDM 4600K... perfect match to the LED strip a pure white wit just a hint of blue... factory fogs untouched they look really yellow in comparison now but soon to be replace with PIAA Solar Yellow 2500K once the weather permits!!

Yes they look pretty good aesthetic wise but will never be as nice as full HD/xenon conversion setup (w/ballast)....
