If you want to waste it well, buy TEIN S.tech springs, pay a shop to install them and buy yourself a nice steak dinner afterwards.

Not to contribute to flaming on anyone (because I think jeffsta's joking)... but should you follow this advice, you would be the guy we make fun of in a different thread that can be found here:

if you're gonna go HID, dont go anything more than 6000k... i'd say 4-5000k would work best

and if you get springs and/or shocks, install that **** yourself.. paying a shop to do so would be a waste of money

in my personal opinion, i'd put a small drop on the ride.. but what kinda route with your car are you going? performance or show? or performance with a touch of show? or show with stuff to make your car sound fast?

I think theres a tradeoff though. Back in my ricer days I had the cheap bulbs when I couldn't afford HID. I got high beamed from ppl having 5000K white lights more then when I had 8000K blue lights. The blue is easier on the eyes to on coming traffic than the white. IMO 4300K hid's are good enough. xRiceBoyX is right. If you want to see the road stay below 6000K.
