if you do this remember you get what you pay for, ive gotten $50 kits before that wont have the color in them that $100 kits have in them. but you will need a kit with bulbs and ballasts.

Re: Quick question regarding HID lights

Price doesn't really matter tbh...I've purchased a $130 JD Lighting kit that came with an extra relay harness; and the 8000K bulbs shine like 5000K/Super White, which kinda blows...I also ordered a $40 3000K/Gold Yellow kit for my fogs...And it works fine. Damn relay harnesses are giving me **** though. Lol.

Yup. This was the point of my other post here; all HIDs are gonna be the same...My $130 kit actually was a different color than I suspected; but the $40 kit I got was actually correct. Lol. The $130 kit IS made from better quality material though...But honestly, it's a car. Not an off-road truck, so quality isn't really that big of an issue with HIDs.

Re: Quick question regarding HID lights

I have had a ton of different H.I.D. kits, and all of them sucked shaft except my latest one. I kept buying ebay kits for $40-$60, and ballasts would go bad, short out, the bulbs were slightly different colors, they were all just unreliable POS's.

I bought a kit from v-leds.com and it is the best kit I have seen. I bought one of the slim ballast ones with 6k purple bulbs and have had them for almost 2 years now without a single issue. A few of my buddies have been so impressed with the kit that they bought them for their cars as well, and still have not had any issues with any of the kits.

v-leds.com are definitly the way to go in my opinion.
