    This is a great deal! :D Thanks! Do we have to have a minimum number for this GB to go forward? Or if the numbers are down, there just may not be another GB for a longer period of time?

    Nope no #'s to hit. Just a straight GB whoever wants in gets in. I may be waiting a little while after this one to do another since I am getting married soon and that is keeping me busy.

    NO! :eek: Don’t' do it! I have done it twice, before realizing I made a horrible mistake. Don't follow me in here, it’s BAD!

    No, Just Kidding. Marriage is great if you have the right girl, and I got the right one the second time around.

    Thanks for doing this GB.

    To All Others: This is a great deal on some great HID's. I spent Hours researching this project, so save yourself some time and jump in, you won't regret it.

    Damn...Maybe it's good you are getting married so it'll be a while before the next one...I might be able to convince my wife that it's a great idea by the time the next one comes around.

    Good luck with the wedding planning!!

    It is MUCH easier than you think... The Temperature is the color and I always recommend 6000K it is bright white with a light tint of blue.

    As for the isntall all you have to do is mount the ballasts near the headlights/foglights and plug the bulbs into the housings. For the headlights there is also a wiring harness that is simple plug and play. For the fogs its just direct plug and play with your current stock plug.

    It comes with some generic instructions but it is pretty easy. My fiance' did her own Corolla headlights in less than an hour.

    Yes they are. I was debating on not having the regular ballasts on this Group Buy but I didn't want to force some people away.

    There will be less light output with the 8000K bulbs and will be a lot bluer. If you're looking for performance then get 6000K and if you want to have the ricer look then get the 8000K.
