God my formatting is so bad. Well just to update, my HID's are not coming till tomorrow. Probably because of hurricane sandy. I've also ordered some nokya 2500k bulbs to compare with the piaa 2500k. My fog light kit comes in on friday.

Got my HID's installed. They cut off the same as halogens and if not, even less. I will post pictures soon, but not now because it's been raining.
So far, it actually looks only slightly brighter than the PIAA's but I'm sure it might be the rain making it look that way. I'm not sure if I installed the HID's correctly because there are like two plugs that aren't plugged into anything right now.
Also, I'm going to compare between the Nokya 2500k, PIAA 2500k, and 3000k HID's. Then all of them with yellow overlay.
My final setup I'm expecting should be 4300k HID low beams and 3000k fogs with yellow overlay.

3000k hid fogs are well worth it but using hid on low beams are a bit too much. it's just that eventhough there is a cut-off line, there is still too much glare coming out. it would be best to do a retrofit/projector setup first on the headlights before changing the low beams to hid. well, it's just my opinion.

Sorry about the delay. I bought a new camera so hopefully I can get better pictures of the HID's since they're blue on video. Plus I'll do the fog light comparison as soon as I get my camera.
Very good info! Thanks a lot

So the intense white 4100 k is brighter than the xtreme white and provides more visibility just not as white ? Only asking because I'm looking to buy some and from what I've read the intense white are brighter, but on amazon are 40 dollars cheaper than the xtreme white . Do people really buy the more expensive xtreme bulbs for looks than performance ?
