    It's the Xentec 10000k bi xenon hi beam low beam conversion kit, an Im pretty sure the plate was put to the bottom, not exactly sure, I'm in a wheel chair an my friend helped me out what I have a question about, is sorry not a pro at this but do you have to have the glare shield or whatever along with the stock glare sheild in the light housing?

    Ditch those 10k bulbs. Go 4300k or 5000k if you want a more white light. Anything more output is less.

    i had 3 sets of xentech i had a set on my bike for 4 years and they still worked when i sold it, i had them in my taco for over a year and a half, now just bought a pair for my foglights. My buddy has them in his civic and i had them in my old truck, for 32$ its worth the risk to me because stock bulbs are around that but these are way brighter, if anything fails they also have a 3 year waranty... how can u not beat that price?
