Alternative HID Kit + Hi-Beam Info

I have done a lot of research before deciding who to purchase a HID kit from, for my Year 2000 E320CDi Wagon.

I finally settled on Autolamps Online.
They are an Authorised Dealer for Phillips Automotive Lighting.

H7 Xenon HID Headlamp conversion kit $600.00
If you want the latest 6000k Cool Power lamps it will cost you an additional $200.00

They supply the Bulbs, Ballasts and Car Specific Wiring Looms.

They are in the UK, like me, but will deliver anywhere in the World Free.

Additionally they will issue FREE 2 Phillips BlueVision halogen main beams with every pair of D2's or conversion kit bought.

I will have mine fitted in about a weeks time and will post results on the site.

Take a look at their SITE -

They also do H1, H4, 9005 and 9006 Kits.


Don't hold your breath waiting for them.
The problem is that any HID of the present generation takes a FINITE amount of time to "Light" up.
This is not condusive to having the light when you want it.

Also the "life" factor of HID's is to a degree linked to the number of times that they are switched on.
As you can realise when you switch on Low Beam it stays on for a long time.
Hi Beam is On/Off many times more.

Manufacturers are working on keeping the gas in the bulb at a VERY high temperature to overcome this problem but no results yet.
