    Ive got the 10k and I HATE them. They look really cool but they are WAY to blue. I wouldnt do anything over 6k. Just my two cents.

    This is a great price by the way.

    So i'm super new to hid to. We pm you on TW correct? Can we order for other vehicles besides tacomas as long as the bulb size is listed on your site? On my car it has dual headlight side by side i would have to order to kits for high low? And what kind of warrenty do your kits have. sorry for any stupid questions Thanks

    There are no stupid questions. :) The kits come with a 12 month warranty and if your headlights are separate bulbs for the highs and lows you will order two kits in low beam only for each bulb size. You can order just the lows if you want your headlights to be HID and high beams stay halogen too that is an option as well. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hey Slim,
    I sent you a PM, please reply back when you can. I requested some extra bulbs.

    FYI I've ordered 6 kits from this dude and they're good stuff. When you get the kit there's this thin hard plastic washer at the base of the bulbs- the one time i didnt cut this piece off I stripped the prongs on the base of the bulb because the washer creates too much pressure when you try to "twist" the bulb into place.

    Slim if you didnt get my message I need to order an H11 4300K low beam extra bulb. I just need one but if it only comes in two just bill me. I already ordered 3 kits with this group buy, just send the invoice to the same email please. thnx

    Thanks Slim I just got my HIDs today, now for the install! Hope all goes well as I've read the DIY from your page a few times now hoping it will help. I'm just not sure if I'm going to use velcro or screws to secure the ballast? Any opinions?

    I would recommend using zip ties. Velcro makes me nervous and screws will have to tap into the sheet metal on your truck and will rust out the drill holes over time.

    Before the USPS tracking was updated, I got the package today.

    I found this wiring diagram matches up 99% w/ Slim's kit, except the extra (-) ground cable.

    Slim, I noticed the bixenon bulb rattles within the bulb assembly. Is that normal? Seems to me that there will be lots of vibration once installed.

    If the bulb is rattling, you don't have the bulb installed correctly. Double check to see that it's properly seated in the headlight housing.

    So I just got done installing my HIDs headlights and fog and now my question is when I got done installing the headlights I turned them on and I hear a humming noise. It seems like it's loud when they are first turned on and then quite down some after. I thought I might have done something wrong but after installing the fog lights they do the same thing. My fiancé car has HIDs and they don't make any noise, what the hell! Does anyone have any suggestions or is this just normal?

    This is normal. It's the ballasts warming up. :)

    Slim,

    My fog light kit came with one 9005 and one 9006 bulb. Can you send me the correct bulb?
