HID discussion

Ok, I want to put HID's in my truck. It seems like a lot of info is scattered in other threads. Also, it seems like every time I make up my mind to buy them, I find another problem with them, such as this. I know that I'm probably worrying too much over less than $50, but I hate to throw money away or buy something and have nothing but problems out of it. Please post what brand HID's you have, the color, the wattage, any pics you might have of them and if you've had any problems out of them

Also, post if you have the hi/low or just low. I've read that you probably don't need the hi with HID's. I've been looking at just getting the low beams...

Damn Eric you are needy. Mine are hi lows. The highs do come in handy when you are out in the middle of deer country.

Thats exactly what I am planning to put in mine, the soon as I have an extra $150 to throw at it. (COME ON W2's!!!!!!)

Gonna do hi/lo's first, and if there's no problems, I will do the foggs next.

I have done them on my bikes, its an easy install.

I will be using DDM as well.

Keep in mind some inspection states/stations will give you hell about HID's, and some states require hi/lo to pass inspection.

Most discussions are in the "Exterior" Forum.

My vote (wish I had done this instead if the "Halo" projectors I bought a while back) is to not screw-around and do it right....

2000 Headlight Upgrade


Mine are 35w 35K Philips Low Beams in the projectors AND 55w 35K RetroSoultions in the High Beam reflectors in eBay Halo Projector Housings. I throw some Serious Light

btw, as to your link, mine are supposedly "High-End" ballasts yet, my ABS light illuminates (briefly) and I have an AM Buzz (constantly) when they're ON
