    Anyone have a link for an ebay auction that isn't completely insane with the shipping.

    The best I have found is 49 for HID's and 40 shipping.

    Can anyone find something better then that?


    While were on the subject what's everyones favorite light level ie 3k 6k 8k 10k 12k

    I think I'll be getting the 10k's but I'm wondering if those are too blue, I have a set of aftermarket bulbs in my car now that are pretty blue so I think the HID's will just be brighter and not bluer.

    when i get my HIDs, i will be getting either 6000 or 8000..10000 is too blue IMO.

    and do you have a link for the auction you are talking about? that is pretty darn cheap.

    I have 5000K hids and next time im going 4300k hids. I love PURE WHITE on the ground. The blueish crap is played in my book ;].

    Anyways my hids was $119 shipped and its the same ones Paul had.

    And 49 for hids? WTF those are fishy or fake. I hope you mean $149 and not 49.

    $50 HIDs sound like a melted wire harness in the future. THe ones Twista and KB had are the ones I am going for.

    yah I want hi/lo and the kit is 50+ shipping which is an insane amount at 40 bucks. Most kits are going for that much and I've seen a few of the 'cheap' kits and they still work fine after a while.

    49.95 is pretty much 50. Shipping is an additional 40 bucks.

    The company that sells the kits that you posted a link for messaged me back saying they will have hi/lo kits for sale in 2 weeks for 97 with free shipping. So I will probably go with that kit.

    Cool, sounds like a great deal. :banana: However, can you link us to the $50 hids. It seems very fishy and we dont want you to get ripped off with some fake hids. $49 is very cheap for hids. (ballasts, hids, fuses, wires). Way to cheap.

    Good Luck.

    good point, I was just looking at prices then I would look over the feedback ect. Most seems fine just didnt ship to a couple people in the last few months.

    I'm almost 100% set on getting the ones from the link twista posted.
