I PM him....the kits I am looking at is this one. http://www.sportsimportsltd.com/hidxenconkit.html

It's a 10,000k kit, the brightest that I could find on the market. Plus it can handle high and low beams.

CKidz,

I'm interested in your experience with this kit. Let us know if you purchase and how it went. I'm shopping too but I'm hearing buyer beware on some of these kits. Also, the warranty on this one is only two years vs. five at HID4less which seems like a similar kit. So keep us posted!

Hmmm, I didn't really think about the warranty....I was hoping more people had done the conversion, because I am a little leary about spending 600$ on lights with no real review on them.

I'm surprised that you found an HID kit for both low and high beams, as one of the few disadvantages of HID is a brief delay in activation. I assume that the low beams stay on briefly when switching to high beams and vice-versa.

I know, this was the only kit that claimed both hi/low....I need to give them a call and see if this is the real deal or not.

The only thing I am worried about, is that the web site does not have a phone number to contact them on, only through email...is there a way to find out if they are a real buisness or not?
