Are the HID headlights that much better?

You can tell work is slow for me......... I'm spending way too much time on here. Just curious. I'm sure that all the people that have sprung for them are gonna say yes, but are they really worth it in a standard headlight assembly?

I know they make a huge difference in a bike. Never tried them in a pickup.

I installed my hids yesterday and I must say they make a big difference. I spent all night driving around. I adjusted mine way down so I don't get busted by the police, but I think I need to raise them up a little bit.

yes and no... depends on which kit you buy.. you can buy low beam only, bi halogen( small piggy back halogen high beam just so you dont lose your flash feature) or bi xenon (motorized bulb that moves up and down)

just FYI but they will be on sale for the black friday sale

Thanks for the response Raul. I was just on your website. A lot of options. I guess I need to make a phone call. To many options for me to figure out without some feedback. I'm thinkin'......Christmas. Black Friday eh? Just figured I'd ask this in case anybody else wants to know also, What's with all the different temp.(4500k to 12,000k) options? What does that do for the buyer?

thats the color spectrum... the higher you go the more blue/ purple it gets... all the pics i posted was of the 6k color temp.. 4500 is about pure white... but the most popular is 6k

yah black friday sale is in like 2 weeks.... will go on that whole weekend.. im leaving the office in about an hour and i wont be back for a couple of hours after that
