    They have reg headlight bulbs but youll have no high beams - $50
    or Bi-Xenon, low and high - $70
    Fog light bulbs - $50
    All come with the 'Slim Ballasts'.. i had a headlight set from Xentec but the Kryptons are WAY brighter and the slim ballast for around the same price as the reg. ballast!!

    Im not sure about the other places.. but this is one guy that does this site.. id much rather deal with one person than a company..
    And ive emailed him some questions and he emailed me back within 30 min.. hes a real nice guy and really helpful.. i ordered them on a sunday night and had them at my door that wed. by 3(when my mailman comes around) i didnt even say that i bought bulbs from him and he helped me out.. VERY nice guy.. i will never buy HIDs anywhere else

    if both vehicles use the same cross referenced bulb then you should have no problems....you do not need a relay with HID.....or at least i didnt utilize one

    More interested in the price and the product and not needing to use customer service.....how is that part compared to 44.00 shipped for lifetime warranty 35w setup?....well, for fogs anyway. I wouldn't do h4s myself and those aren't 44.00 but my headlights are seperate and h7s would be OK.
