HID Low Beam ?

I've been reading the thread below about "Driving lights - Which to buy?. Now I'm really interested in the HID low beam. But nowhere in that thread is there a link to where to get the kit. I went to HID-Online.com but I didn't see where to buy the kit. I saw photo's of a KLT, but no link or info. on which kit to buy.

Can you guys tell me where to get the kit, approx. how much it costs, and about how long it takes to install.

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff,

Its been a while but I believe Janet is the lady I spoke with at HID when I ordered.

If you call her at Tel: +44 (0)1244 881961 (England) she can steer you to the correct kit. I think I read someplace that they have a combination high and low beam kit that is discounted if you have an interest in both.

The motorcycle section of the site doesn't break down the kits by model very well but they have a statement that LT custom kits are available. Really need to either email or call for the full details.

I had an after sale issue and was very satisfied with the service.

Looking at the site it looks like your kit will be $308. I recommend the 4100K temp light. It is much whiter than their 6000K. I have used a 5000K bulb and found even it to be too blue in color so I switched to the 4100K. There are some other kits for less money and many on this site have installed them hopefully they will chime in.

The overall quality and plug an play design of my kit was excellent. Installation means a day of taking off all the tupperware including the nose cone. The rest is pretty easy following the directions provided and the posts on the subject found on this site.

If you at all think you will want the high beam in the future do them both at the same time and save yourself a day of labor and some shipping costs. The high beam is truly amazing!


Good luck

Here is a source that I found with a web search. They are based in the US but I have not used them and they are more expensive then Qlights. They also have sample picks of the different HID lights on the road
