    Hi there!

    There is a link on the first post with all the bulbs lit up so you can see there colors. But just remember the higher you go in temperature for more color the less bright they get. I would recommend the 6000K they are a slight blue but very bright. Let me know what you would like and be sure to PM me all the info requested in bold on the first post.

    Thanks!

    So it looks like your wanting just headlights if you buy the hid kit its plug and play dont need anything now if you go with the offroad light then you would want a switch and relay and some wire you put it how you want thats what i had done.

    I would say go with the 6000K they are a slight blue tint but brighter than the 8000K. So far I have sold 99% all 6000K and 4300K. The other 1% get 8000K and up. The kit for your headlights is plug and play you won't need anything else.

    Structured hardened glass lens is what i chose i dont wanna say they are fogs i would say they are driving lights but i will have a buddy confirm this for me, these lights are good on distance definately not a pencil beam pattern but you can see for a good distance away.
    These light could be a euro pattern wide to longe range capabilities.

    I have not personally installed the Off Road lights since I don't have a setup for them... But Socalman has installed 1 of mine for a sample to see how they are and he seems to like them a lot. I would personally say that they should only be used for off road use only since they will project light all over the road at very bright levels. :)

    slimcubby,

    This group buy is the best price I've found on HIDs conversions. Is there a performance difference between the normal and the slim digital ballast? Or is it just the size of the ballast themselves for mounting location purposes? I am thinking about upgrading to HIDs, but am not sure if they will damage my stock headlight housings over time from the temperature. Any advice you have would be great! Thanks in advance.

    I would not worry about the temperature since they are only 35w. I am running 50w in my headlights and 35w in my fogs with zero problems. The slim are in my opinion the way to go, compact lightweight and easy to mount was the reason why I switched to them. If you have any other questions let me know.

    Thanks!

    They are along the same brightness levels, however on stock lexus etc. they are using projectors so the beam pattern is different than from a normal housing like ours.
