    hey man. i have a 8000k digital hid kit that i bought from turnagain high lights but you can get the same kit at retrosolutions.com. for a bi-zenon kit (hi and low beam)
    runs about 160. they are very easy to install too. ive had my kit for about two months and i love them. its a little bit more pricy compared to some other kits you will find but its worth it. good luck man

    Just some questions:

    Why do some spend money to put out less light than the stock lights?

    Does the violet color really make things better?

    8,000 k is dimmer than 5,000 K (which is just a little blue).

    Isn't 4,300 k pure white and the most light?

    Yes 4300k is the most useful. Some people just like the blue look, some people are ignorant and think the higher number means brighter.
