Ok. Sounds like something I can do

So I purchased a set of HID lights from DDM tuning. My original intent in purchasing the kit was to decrease current draw from the headlights and to achieve a nice light blue color. After reading through everything in this thread it's clear that it's not a very good idea to put HID kits in stock housings. I'm looking for the light blue HiD look. What is a good alternative to HIDs if you're keeping the halogen housing?

GOOD? Nada

Blue irritates the eye and sucks in rain, snow, or dust

Silverstars are great but won't last a year. I've been through so many sets over the years. I ended up switching to Sylvania, I think. They are not as good but I've yet to replace them in 18 months so far.

I drive 40K miles per year which may explain the difference.

Silverstars are great!
