I have bought several kits from myDepots on e-bay...........the bulbs are made in japan and the ballast's are made in germany. I have converted two sets of Hella 500's to H.I.D. light 5000k bulb.........going on a year now with ZERO problems. I use, run them alot....especially offroad at night.

Here is one of there auctions with discribitions:

German technlogy is by far the best

Philips make the best kits

If you want something reliable and quality pm me....as with anyting you get what you pay for.

Just because its cheap and turn off and on does not mean its great, light ouput, scatter, glare, system amperage, etc all come into play.

good stuff
i got the 35w 4300k bi xenons....they come in all different color temps too

for HIDs the 35w kits are the norm...ususally better....the 55w kits are marginally brighter but don't last nearly as long or as reliable.


just remember to aim your headlights down when u get em'
