Get Some white HIDS. 4500k for the temp.

ddmtuning.com has them for $30 for low beams and like $40-$50 for the ones that have both high and low beams.

No, its a system. HID..

"HID is short for High-Intensity Discharge, which is an advanced, powerful and efficient lighting technology that's making the transition from the industrial to the consumer market. It works by creating an electrical arc, which then heats up a cloud of gas that's floating in the bulb. Usually, xenon gas is used because it creates an incredibly bright blue light that virtually matches the color temperature of noontime daylight. HID xenon lighting is far superior to traditional halogen lighting because it produces a brighter, more natural light that reduces eye strain and increases visibility."

No, not just a bulb. They include the bulbs, ballasts, wiring kit and relay.

That price does seem a bit low. Too good to be true?

I have those now and they are ok. But I'm ordering the HIDs this week I think because they are better.

They're actually very good HIDs. But sometimes, like most products like this arrive DOA... but they're pretty good about honoring the lifetime warranty.

It may look complicated. Everything is plug and play. You can go to their site and see instructions on how to install them. You just need to mount the ballast in a dry location, you can search where some TW members have mounted theirs to give you ideas.

I just bought and installed a set of DDM hi\lo slim ballast 6000k . It cost me $86 with shipping I believe. They look great. A Tad to blue but not bad.. I would def go with the 4500k for the ultimate white look.
