HID conversion

I know that there are some sponsers on here that sell HID conversions, but how do you know what a good conversion really is, thay all say they are better than the rest. I found this on E Bay what do you think? Price is very cheap and Sylivania bulbs with Panasonic and Seimans electornics should be good.

sorry, I forgot the link.
eBay Motors: HID XENON CONVERSION KIT 9006 H4 H13 H10 H1 9007 H7 880 (item 150179165454 end time Nov-11-07 13:16:33 PST)

It doesnt look like a link on the screen, guess I dont know how to do it. It is like $76.00 shipped. I looked at the ones on Rauls website but I dont know how to tell what is good and what is bad since they all say they are the best.

wow thats dirt cheap.. i would be wary on a HID conversion kit that cheap.... Real HID bulbs go for about 100 bucks just for the bulbs.... im not saying mine are the best but im very competitive for an HID kit. Many members on here are running the same kit i sell and have had no complaints about them....

Ya that is what has me wondering about these. I dont feel like your prices are out of line at all but I ran across these and they actually have name brand stuff. Most of the time the just say "high quality" and I would stay away from those. I am going to switch to HID just dont know when or what yet.

According to this pic from the link you provided, you are going to need a few things.


More wire, a few connectors, and some inline fuses from what I can see.

I'd have to disagree... The HID kits use the OEM headlight circuits and the get power from the OEM headlight plugs. It looks like everything is there. But I too am somewhat leery of the low price.

I'd say go with Raul, the Ebay stuff seems to be a bit sketchy for $76. Raul's is a decent price, I got mine from another guy that one of the members suggested for around $190 shipped, and they are great, But anything under $150 I'd be cautious of.
