bring it to the dealer. maybe there is a problem with the ballast or housing seal.

welp, i did try that and they told me "the system is working properly" and that they didnt look pink to them. yeah but wait until the first time i take my car in after the warranty goes out, then they'll tell me that i need to replace the whole system because something is fried. :roll: d$%n dealerships. :noway: any other suggestions?

yeah the stock hid's will have a purple-ish pink hue to them when you look at them at a certain angle, but the output will still be brighter than regular hid's and more yellow than 6000k....if you look at your HID's in the daytime they will always look a liittle pink...that is the nature of teh bulb. If you look at them at night they should be pretty white.

i have the stock HIDs and the clear fog lights with 5000k blubs.. at night i can tell the difference between the two because the HIDS look a bit more light purple and the fogs now have just the slightest bit of light blue in them.. im gonna try the piaa super plasma bulbs soon becuz they are a light purple.. hopefully they will match up..

when people say do a search, it's probaby because the topic has been brought up many times already.

The fact is...alot of these questions are beaten to a pulp and it would do a person good to search for the answer...you'll learn one hell of a lot more than you were looking for and that is a good thing. When that fails, post something and maybe someone will be nice enough to answer your question or give you the link.

ok well dpatterson, let me know how those bulbs turn out ok? i bet that it will look great!

blklexis3 thanks for agreeing with me man! can't stand when people tell you to do a search.

and ucla-is300, i appreciate the help you gave me earlier, but in all honetsy i did do a search and came up empty handed so i did do this as a last resort. can somebody give me some pointers on doing a search maybe i am not looking in the right area or something. i haven't only been a member on this thing for a short time, and am not really on here all that much except for recently.

thanks to all!

honestly i don't know if anyone has ever complained about their headlights being pink/purple on this board...searching probably wouldn't help you too much. but it might have answered your question about the interior lights...

A search for "map and light":

http://www.is300.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13324233&highlight=map+light - user edgy talks about changing the map light bulb (near the sunroof controls)

http://www.is300.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13325043&highlight=map+light - some discussion about the dome light bulb

hope that helps.
