    Out driving

    Just a random post really
    I was driving home from my mate last night and figured I could film the drive home. I stopped and mounted my phone on the dashboard and continued on. The camera is pointing a bit low, but there was nothing I could do about that...

    The road is the old main road over here, it's small and bumpy, but it's way bad now because there's a layer of snow and ice on it...So in other words, my tires and suspension got a real beating even when I drove slowly!
    Actually when I come to think about it, I think my exhaust pipe got a bit shaken that night as the car was a bit louder when I turned the engine over this morning.

    This is also a chance of showing off the light output of the xenons.
    My low beams are 35W 5000k xenons and my high beams are 55W 5000k xenon connected directly to the battery via a relay (though only one was working because of a broken ballast..)
    I noticed in the film that when I turned the main beams on they look a bit greenish, this is because the windscreen is slightly tinted green from factory.

    Enjoy the ride

    Breaking news! As I'm a big fan of murphy's/sods's law where things tend to go from bad to worse:
    I just got myself the most chavviest exhaust system one can get on the market!

    I think the roads have shaken the exhaust system to pieces, more specifically I think there's been a weak joint somewhere underneath that has been gradually shaken off as I've been driving along.
    Ohwell, there's an exhaust shop not far from where I live, so I'll pop in there next week

    a little off topic, but what sort of colour are you 5000K bulbs in person? just pure white as they look in the video?
    need to buy myself a kit for my sharkeyes but cant decide on 5000 or 6000K. really just after a pure white light, not much of a blue tint.
