Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

I think 8000K is the furthest anyone should go. Anything more then that is too dark of a blue or purple!!!

I'm running on (icy blue) 8000K 55W ballast in my heads and (yellow) 3000K 35W ballast in my fogs!!!

Love that combo ever since!!!

i disagree natural light ( sun ) is about 4100-4300k but still a bit yellow ( like a normal 100w house bulb

6000k gives you that clear light bluish tint( like a house hold Florissant bulb) with out blinding other people ( if fitted correct )

8000k is over kill of the blue

anything over 6000k does not really give you any more light just makes it more blue to purple and more of a distraction to others on the road

you need a whole kit , Ballast and blubs, if you not really to sure what your doing then id suggest you go pay some one and get the whole kit and installed for $100-150

you will be happy with the money you spend on it

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

I wouldn't put HID's in my high beams. HID's are not meant to be turned on and off frequently, as you would be when signaling someone by flashing your high beams.

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

I hope I'm not too late...But consider getting this: JD Lighting HID Conversion Kit (H1) | Password JDM

MAKE SURE you get the "recommended" wire harness; which is to be wired to the battery. I bought this kit. It's a little more expensive, but worth it. Also, I live in Utah too.

EDIT: Forgot to add this, I got 8000K too. It looks INSANE with my yellow JDM fog lights. There's less "white" in 8000K bulbs and higher...So anything past 8000K would be taking away from your visibility.

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

I'll definately take a look at those I feel more comfortable buying those then some others just cause this website tells you what you get.. I'll probably get 6000k ones but what is the HID wiring harness?? Do you get that??

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

How do you do HID's on both high/low being that they are separate bulbs? Is there a way to do this without having to get two kits?

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

What people have told me is there is no reason to get high beam HIDS just for the fact that your low beam HIDS will already be bright enough.. But if you want both then yes i believe you need two kits

Well, I mean your high beams are positioned at a higher shooting point than your low beams. So even if you have 6000k 55w HID's for low beams and stock high beams, you'll still have further visibility with your high beams on.

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!



When I had my HIDs installed I had 6000k 35w for my low beams with the wiring harness from DDM Tuning and left my high beams stock. I LOVED the way they look. I can't wait to get my JDM style one-pieces and install them again.

And you really don't need 55w. I recall seeing somewhere that 55w can actually produce less visible light. But don't quote me on that.

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

4th gen or 5th gen, it doesn't matter. I'd still recommend 35w.
But I would recommend getting the wiring harness as well. Most people who don't find that their lights will either flicker while driving, or they will take a couple tries to turn on.
HIDs require more power from the battery than stock headlights so instead of trying to push all that electricity through the stock harness, you use electricity directly from the battery.

Re: HID's!!! Help!!!

HID Kits, BMW Aftermarket Bumpers & Lighting, DEPO - DDM Tuning

Get these. 35w, H1, 6000k, HID Harness. You don't need the CEL eliminator nor do you need the H1/H7 to 9006 adaptor cables.

They're $37.50+shipping. Best price I've found, best HIDs I've had experience with.
