HID Bulbs???

Ok guys, so I am looking to upgrade my headlight/foglight bulbs in my truck and my wifes Yukon XL. I don't want to spend a ton of $ for an HID kit, but am looking into cheaper ways to upgrade to a better/bluer bulb. What should I do??? Any advice please??? Thanks guys.

I have a kit from DDM in my truck and they are good for the $ about 55-75 for a kit.
In the wife's van and dads truck I have kits from Retro Solutions and they are GREAT, about 165-175 per kit.

ddmtuning.com I got my hid kit for 25 dollars. Low beams only and they are 12k. They are the best investment so far. Easy to hook up as long as you have common sense and its only twenty bucks more for the high beams. But u won't need them I promise.

Not sure where you're getting this $150 number, but as stated above you can get a complete HID conversion kit from DDM for $50 Hi/Low. Or less for just low beams (like $30) and most people who have them will tell you that's plenty of light.
