Hey I don't really know much at all about lighting, but I would like to put some HID lights in my fogs.

I like the blue but one of my buddies said that the color difference of blue in the fogs and regular headlights pissed him off.

I found theses on ebay and need to know if they are decent or just a joke.

Thanks

those look like just bulbs, you would need a ballast and all to make it work

These are NOT HID. These are regular bulbs colored blue to try to make the light look like HIDs. Don't waste your money. If you dont want to hassle with installing a real HID kit look into Silverstars or Hoen Xenonmatch.

When you see a Seller's location in Ebay as: "Item location: SUPER FAST SHIPPING, United States", it means the item is being shipped to you from Asia. Don't do it. Seller also has Buyers complaining that bulbs are NOT HID.

If you're just wanting to color, I've sen a few guys with these on their fogs.
