I drove a 91 auto and it had power steering and I found it to be VERY heavy at low speeds. I cannot imagine what it is like to drive one without PS. But i want to try! :)

NetViper -= looking to get an NSX before I turn 26! =- Didn't make 25 :(

NetViper, I don't think you would miss the power steering at all. You would get used to it real quick. Once you are going about 5-10MPH you can already steer with one hand. I switch between my wifes new 04 Lexus RX 330 with a very light power steering to my 92 NSX and I don't miss a beat :) I actually drove a 91 auto as well once and from memory the steering for some odd reason felt just as heavy at low speeds as my 5-speed 92.

That quote from NetViper is two years old. He now has an NSX that does not have power steering.

Hehehe, I didn't notice the date. I thought it was kind of odd since I know he has the white 93. :D

...but I'm planning to install HID headlights (since they're so terrific on my Integra GS-R).

Ken, is this going to be a DIY job, or are you going to get it professionally installed? If the latter, have you decided where you are taking it? Let me also ask the obvious: I assume this is going to be the SoS kit?

The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of a similar upgrade (not immediately, but rather, at some point down the line).

Regards.
 
Swede,
If you just want super white head lights, I would just buy a pair of Xenon bulb with Krypton gas (100/80W should be fine and bright enough). they cost about us$30 on ebay. If you want somthing with a little blue or purple, just get a Xenon bulb with color temperature of 4500K or above. I am using the brand named "showoff" xenon krypton bulb, they have pretty good quality. I used them in two cars, one of them is over a year and I never have any problem, and they are very "white"

I had a custom HID kit installed on my NSX in the winter of 2001-2002, before the SoS kit was on the market.

It was installed by a very proficient mechanic at a high-end BMW repair shop, but he no longer works there.

I would be somewhat less picky about the qualifications of the installer with a kit designed for the NSX like the SoS kit, since it already takes into account stuff like where to route all the wiring, where to mount the individual components, etc.

A "Xenon bulb" - in other words, a bulb containing Xenon gas - is not a true high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting system, including ballasts and igniters as well as the real HID bulbs. Every "Xenon bulb" that I have ever seen, looks nothing like a real HID system. Put it side by side with a quality HID-equipped car and see for yourself.
