Hid Low Beams

a while back there were a couple places that had good HId kits at good prices I can not find the links, also there was a unit that was out that was smaller than the normal hid ballast, I owuuld not mind looking at that as well since we are putting thison a GS

Thanks
Tom

I got mine at HIDONLINE.com in UK.

Not sure if they have the small ballast.

I did like that they had the buld in different K values. I didn't want an ice blue bulb. Prefer a warmer light. Mine is 4500K.

Here you go Tom
They are down to $110 now, you want the H7 5000
I just put the HID out of my 02 in the 05 and last night was the first time out after dark,
even though I knew what to expect my reaction was still
WOW

Tom;

I just received the new aerostich cat. and saw they now have HID kits.
I think they were about 400$. They do state they are illegal and for off road use only. "right"
I will run them forever. I got mine from HIDONLINE.
Just letting you know.

Ditto what Hans said for CQLight.ca if you can find room for the igniter and ballast. Paid $129 in January, the unit seemed very well made, zero problems in 15K + miles.
