brake shields have been around for years; I had them on my 1989 Maxima. They may cut down on brake dust build-up on the wheels, but also impede brake cooling.

HID generates less heat than tungsten bulb, so of course it's not as hot. Fog light housing is smaller than headlight's, so it can get pretty hot after 2 hours, plus there is more air moving over...

for the frugal DIY type you can just buy a high-quality home air filter for $15 and cut to fit. One home air filter is enough to make several.

did they actually call it "HID" or just "xenon" or "HID-like?" Xenon just means the bulbs contain xenon gas, and does not equal "high intensity discharge." Blue-tinted bulbs of the same wattage...

All white--that's so 80's. Remember all the white MB's and BMW's in Miami Vice; and all the white Honda/Acura's in the early 90's?! Sometimes more is just more, not better.

don't bother--you won't be able to keep up with it--after awhile the black stain will set in. It's like trying to keep the bottom of your shoes clean.

it's recommended that window tint be protected with a thin layer of silicone lubricant spray. ArmorAll works, too; just be sure to wipe off the excess to avoid leaving a white film.
