    As the title says. I was wondering what was the best Xenon/H.I.D bulb to use with a PNP kit. I have a kit from SlimCubby and one of the bulbs output is way off. Soo I was just curious if there was a better bulb that is compatible with the PNP kits..thanks.

    Also I know that I will never have excellent light output without projectors..but as of now I have other things on my plate soo please refrain from flaming b/c I have as of yet done a projector upgrade.

    um...not sure what you mean the housing or the kit...so ill answer both.

    I have stock headlight housings

    and the PnP kit is slims kit from the group buy....

    I know to truley have the best light output i should have projectors..but i was just wondering if there was a better bulb to use with the PnP kits...

    I have Bi-Xenon b/c in VA you must have High and Low beam to pass State Inspection. Only reason I got the Bi-Xenon

    Thanks for the help man.

    These are shields/adapters for D2S bulbs because D2S's don't fit in an H4 fitting.

    thanks for the help viet. I have a couple other questions. I have 35w ballast should I upgrade to the 55w ? will that help any? and also the bulbs i have now have a metal shield over the bulb with a cut out that I was told has to be pointing up should I use a metal shield on the DS2 bulbs? and what is a good brand of bulb to use? the Ebay link you listed? is that a good bulb? is morimoto a good bulb?
