Seriously, people paying over 50 bucks for these, STOP. These are easy to find online for 30-50 bucks, why risk buying used junk?

any of ya guys have pics of there kits?

i wanna buy some for my trucks high beams but i dont know to much about the 55w kits. i want a typical 6K temp with mostly white with a slight blue tint perferably... so what temp should i get with the 55w kit? like the 6-8K which one should i look at getting for a slight blue tint?
when i get back from vacation ill be buying 2 kits to be sure they match for the high and lows together. and just remove my hids i got from oz along time ago and keep em for a backup set.

i got the 8000k for my f150

has a bluish-white tint to them.

color also will depend on the housing. how it reflects the light.

my wife has 8000k in her TC and they are more bluish-purple

So you would rather have people using HID bulbs in housings designed for halogen bulbs?

This is just my opinion Eric and no offense is intended, but it's really none of your business what people are selling HIDs for in the FS/T section. People are allowed to charge as much as they want for them and if the buyer doesn't take the responsibility to research the technology and the price that they are going for, then let them pay twice the retail value. This is America man.

well IMO just as many people IF NOT MORE dont know how to properly align there factory headlights and they blind more people than anyone with a HID kit do!

i have guards on my aftermarket headlights and have them properly adjusted and i havent been flashed ONCE since i installed them ruffly a year ago.

but i get blinded all the time by these stupid people that dont know how to adjust there headlights and always have that one headlight pointed up and over right in your face!

^^ dont do HIDs for ur highs, HIDs do not like to be turned on and off constintly, it would kill the life of ur ballast. just get some off road lights behind ur grill and hide them, and there ya go, brighter than highs depending on what u get. o and i got the 35w kit, and my 6K are PURE white.

^^That's actually an extremely common/easy mod on those GM trucks and it's also a bit less harsh on the H.I.D.s icon_smile.gif In case you don't know,that mod simply allows your low beams to stay on when the high beams are on. icon_cool.gif He will certainly have alot more light output and surely would blind on coming traffic,but seriously you should always turn your high beams off in that situation anyway,so it shouldn't even be an issue.

I have a set of 55w 10,000k, since they said the 55w kits burn 2,000k lower. so 10,000k are 8,000k in color. But mine are nice and clear. Ill try to get a good picture, they are in my high beams.

And this is a public car lighting forum, where people try and help each other out in the interest of modifying and customizing their cars. Value plays an important role, and I'd like to share my cheap HID knowledge with the rest of the world.

Hows that? icon_smile.gif See what I did there?
