    I got a no-name brand HID conversion kit from a local flea market for my fogs for only $40(35W 6000K). I have ran them all day and night for almost a year now with no issues.... guess I'm lucky. My headlights are the expensive ones although I can't remember the brand but they are the same wattage and kelvin.

    And just to let you know... A 55W HID bulb will run cooler in temperature than a 55W halogen bulb.

    slim cubby has a good kit, really easy to install and he really takes the time to help you if you have any questions. Oh and there's usually a group buy going on so you can save a little money which is always good
