I paid $152 from RetroSolutions for their 55W Digital 8K Bi-Zenon HIDs and I LOVE THEM!!

Superb quality and they are crazy bright!! Plus a lifetime warrantee for the original owner.

Bought mine from DDM with the 55W headlights and 35W fogs and it was around $150. Can't remember exactly and that was with the optional wiring harness and low profile ballasts.

Yes, about $150 for the entire set. That includes bulbs, ballasts, and all necessary wiring harnesses.

Hella?

What are the wattage and temperature options? How about the wiring harnesses?

Will you replace the parts for free if they fail? That's how these other companies are set up.

At $150, that was for the options I listed but also forgot to add that mine are H13 bi-xenons (the bulb angles up and down when high/low beams are selected).

There are kits that are way cheaper than this. But, given the amount I was able to customize the kit and the warranty provided (even though it's a little bit of a pain to deal with), it's worth my money.

I'd be willing to see what you have though.

Why are you making such a big deal about no relay needed? I like having a relay to protect expensive switches in my truck.

So, I guess Hellaz is not Hella (well respected name in lighting).

For the record, the DDM and Retro Solutions are plug-and-play too and come with a lifetime warranty, harnesses, relays, etc.

Not knocking you, just letting you know.

I hope everyone uses projectors, everytime some one gets behind me with HID's in halogen housings without projectors, I want to bash their lights in with a bat. If you do HID's please do it right.

Amen! I'm sick of seeing crappy blue headlights & fogs everywhere, blinding everyone and gross shades of blue. Ghettos up the rig IMO. And way too trendy.

When your headlamps match the lowered 1987 GMC pickup w/ spinning hubcaps sitting next to you, that's your sign that you chose the wrong set up.

And 80% of the time one of the lamps is burned out...the cheap ones are horrible, bad for the rig (burning wires, fires, blown fuses), unsafe for the road (blinding people, lamp failures), and annoying as all get out.

If you insist on getting the blue bulbs or HIDs w/o projectors, please aim them straight to the ground!
