Maybe he could've been nicer, but he did say it was not strictly directed toward the OP, but in general to use 'search'. I mean come on search 3 letters, HID, and you get enough threads to answer his question 20 times. Maybe had it been followed with a list of links to help him answer the question, it would've been a nicer way to put it.

Oh and Mike, you had HID's in your NG, so can't you shed some insight on this as well?

I don't get it, if you know the answer to something off the top of your head why not answer and save yourself the time and effort of typing up a "use search" rant. And you come off as a much more welcoming person in the process.

speaking of which I just ordered a h4 hi/lo headlight kit from ddm, I will let you know how that works out.

A humble thank you to all of you guys on here that truly made this a comforting experience.You guys are awesome. I really appreciate the numerous replies on the subject and all of the help that came with it!

Oh and to those who are pissed that I didn't "search" hid on this site, I actually did. At the time I only received two results. I assumed that was all that was on this site. Besides every now and then I get the "server not found" message. So I'm guessing it might of been an issue with the server.

And to "saabkid": try holding a position, out numbered and outgunned, in an ambush as two of your best friends drop dead in front of you in your first ten minutes of combat.

So while it took you four years to apparently stop shitting rainbows in college, it took me 10 minutes to see the "spectrum" of hope and life disappear before me.

People with your cocky mentality made a lot of us question what we were really fighting for over there in the sandbox.

I hope you learn how to live life with a more humble state of mind.

God Bless and Thanks again for all of those who helped.

yes, today was not the best, as a 3 week old died on the unit today, as well as having to listen to a woman in labor for 90% of my shift today gave me a headache.

My apologies for not pouring all my time and skill into using absolutely perfect grammar and spelling on an internet forum. Please forgive me kind sir.

what is it with people being so sensitive to internet bullying these days*

on topic - HID's ROCK, i suggest a pnp kit with cleared lenses.
