    Hey guys.... lookin to see how much everyone has payed for their HID headlights. Whether it was from Ebay or wherever. Just curious. I currently sell HID lights for offroad vehicles on ebay (Teryx, Rhino, Rzr, etc.) I currently have a few H4 sets in stock, but they are only one beam. I have access to dual beam HID's very easily, but curious to as what they are goin for. Maybe I can get some comin and offer a great deal to members. Let me know.

    I'd be in on some dual beam HIDs if available? How hard would it be to make the conversion? Would it change my existing BHLM setup? Wanted to go HID for a while just want to make it as inexpensive and easy as possible. Thanks

    Where from? There are a few different types of HID sets for the H4 conversions. They have....

    Low is HID, High is Hallogen
    Low and High is HID (2 bulbs per socket...1 high, 1 low....per side)
    Low and High is HID (1 bulb, changes to low and High)

    Which one you get?

    I know the costs from the factory, I can tell you someone made a lot of money off ya! :(

    BHLM is the blacked out head light modification. Can you get some dual h4s and still have them fit in the stock locations or how do you go about making the mod to make them fit? really interested to see how this is done cause i love the look of dual HID h4 with the BHLM. i'll see if i can send you a pic of another members i'm referring to.

    I know what you talking about. DUH!!! HAHA! It will work. Your just changing the bulb, which is a direct replacement. Hook up the ballasts to power through a relay provided in the kit and your done. Should take a total of 20 minutes. Thats taking extra time to tuck the wires all nice.

    Ok... after seeing that pic... those are a totally different headlight which is aftermarket. I am not sure what bulbs those take. When people talk about the BHLM, they take their stock lights and paint them black. The ones in the pic are not stock headlights.

    Just got mine put in. I will be glad to post some pictures for you tonight. Those lights are called Halo or Projector headlights. The blubs that come with them are not HID but they are fairly good. You can put aftermarket HID's in the light however.

    PM me if you want more info.

    So what you are saying is that i can keep the mod i already did, swap bulbs on both, add ballasts, hook up and viola HIDs! is that correct? If so how much? and i'm assuming mine will come out like the one a few pics above mine right? If not do have a pic of what they 'll look like when i'm done? I could live with that so it doesn't cost me an arm and a leg and lose me the work i already put in on making the mod. Let me know what you can do

    The bulbs you put in will not fit the new lights I don't think... I don't know for sure though. The lights look amazing though at night and even during the day.

    About $110 with shipping for bi-hid from slimcubby off of Toy Nation. Single HIDs are about 20 less.

    Rockstar can you do us any better?

    Thats about as good a deal as youll get for HIDs... if you want some even cheaper I have a 2week old used set in the for sale area Im looking to unload :D

    I paid around $90+/- for mine for the HIDs themselves, shipping to the Supplier and then the shipping to get to me.

    Does that include a warranty and all the wiring harnesses to hook up to stock wiring?
