I'm guessing that's Photoshop of some variety... if not, that color is approaching an illegal tint of blue and I'd like to know how you achieved it.

Is it even his car? Does the 2nd car look silver/like a different car or something?

Jeeze guys - sounds like an interrogation.

Photos are most likely underexposed/color corrected to achieve that look (which is why the DRL's are blue and the car looks silver). If he just pointed his camera at the headlights and shot it, it would probably blow out the colors.

Also in first picture, there is quite a bit of vignetting so it's definitely gone through post-processing.

Or I could be totally wrong and that's an awesome HID kit. Either way, nice photos.

Didn't mean to sound like I was initiating an interrogation. It would just be nice to have some background on the pictures rather than just leaving us wondering. The pictures are nice, yes. I'm just curious if there was a possibility to actually get the LED strip to illuminate with a blue hue. This would solve the issue many people are experiencing with the HID color contrast causing the LED to appear yellow.

Same here.

Not sure if that's possible. I figured out the LED's turn MUCH dimmer once your turn on the headlights. The LED DRL's by themselves are SOOOO bright in person, but once the headlights are on, they're scaled back a lot, so don't think it could happen. Now if there was a way to disable the LED DRL's from being on when your headlights are on, that might be another option?

The pics was taken with wide angle, under-exposed and no flash.
The original DRL color is white, it's post processed to blue hue and cropped to 16:9 for desktop wallpaper :)

These 2 pics were taken by my iphone4. No flash as well. No post processing done. I believe the area lightning is making the DRL look bluish.
