the draven lights that are listed on this site's headlights page uses true HID bulbs.supradakotaman said:Just curious if anyone here is running a real hid kit in the stock headlamp assembly. If so, how's the light pattern and did you have any difficulty in the install, specifially finding space. Also what kit did you go with, Philips, Xvision, etc?
talking about the whole setup, the bulbs in stores labeled as "hid" for 20 bux aren't hid, just halogen bulbs filled with a small amount of xenon gas and a dyed glass which seems in my opinion to diminish the light output (i have a pair of "hyperwhite hid" bulbs that's why i say it's less output of light). I got the imitation bulbs because i just couldn't stand the yellowish color of stock bulbs, but they're so dim still, only they "look prettier". The kits have actually dropped in a huge way in price, now u can find em for as little as 300 bux, but on average 400, 500 or so. Another place i found selling kits is www.hidstore.com but those seem to be a generic brand with no certification or anything so it seems iffy. I guess i'm looking for a kit that specifically will give the most light output without blinding other drivers, and keeping the color as white (4000 to 6000k kits) as possible as opposed to that ultra purple and blue color (7000-up k). Plus above 6000k, the light output diminishes.JST2SIC said:yoy are talking the whole set up or replacement bulbs? I would love to get the true set up, but it's like $700.00 right
