    You can get Bi-Xeon bulbs....The are shielded in/on the bulb IIRC.
    or you can get a new set of lenses with projectors and high/lows separated.

    I gave up my high beams. Mine are hella bright, and there is no real need for "high" beams.

    just curious, guess i never really looked into bi xenon, i got some HID's for my g/f's car but it has 2 seperate bulbs and her low beams were already projectors, just not HID

    what's a good place to pick up a bi xenon kit that isn't garbage and doesn't cost a million dollars?

    go to ddm.... lifetime warranty you can beat and about 70 for bi-xenon. Had mine in my car since winter of 2007.

    Only certain types of high beams have the extra halogen for the highs...most popular now is the solenoid that angles the light up with high beam and works very well.

    out of your ass.... jk. but a bixenon is both a hi/low. in a actually hid projector, its not the bulb, but the projector that switches a cutoff shield to allow more light to pass

    If you are running the 35w you shouldn't need that harness to go with it. You are going to get a harness to power the hi/lo. What tells you that you need the 2 in 2 out is if your lights start flashing off on occasion. On install make sure your ground and positive have a good connection.
