Yep, pretty easy. I ordered a dual beam kit for about $65 from a site called DDMtuning.com

Re: hid kit on mustang v6

its plug and go. so it should take about 20 minutes depending on where you decide to put the ballast.

Re: hid kit on mustang v6

people flash their highbeams at me when I have my low beams on, so I just pull in my light thing so my low beams are on and my high beams are on, then they usally stop flashing me.

Re: hid kit on mustang v6

I have 5k 35Watt DDM's.. it took us 30 minutes to install both, and that's only because we forgot to plug the blinker in on one of the lights and it took us 5 minutes to figure out why the damn headlight wasn't fitting back in perfectly.

As far as brightness. I consider mine, on a scale of normal lights.. somewhere inbetween where the highbeams use to be. Distance doesnt light up as far as highbeams, but its brighter than the normal lights alone. I lost my high beams due to the switch I didn't buy the doubles. But I have yet to have encountered a problem with that.

As far as flashing goes, I got flashed once.. I've had them for about 2-3 weeks now.

If I do that I don't have any headlights at all, only my fog lights.

8k I believe. Do you think it would help to adjust the headlights down? So they shine lower?

I'm not sure. I put mine straight in because I don't want to melt the housing. Do you know how many watts at 8k you're pushing?

They sell a film you can put on your headlight and cut the access off, they also sell a spray. I'd go with the film.

What color do they look like? The K's don't really matter if you don't know the wattage. I have 5ks and they are only 35watts so they're clear. The more watts there are the color will change. If I'm not mistaken.

It's a really bright white almost blueish tint to them. I like them if no one is driving towards me

be careful b/c on some housings this can cause areas to heat up and melt/mold in different ways than stock.

This is why you need to be careful of the wattage you use also.

I do believe mine would fall under that category. My nephew just took it for a spin and said they are aimed to high. It might help lowering them but I'm afraid they're still going to be to bright. I don't want to be blinding people or getting pulled over because of them. Can I put a lower watt bulb in or do I need a whole new HID kit?

Sweet. I was looking for a bluish hue to them though. Do yours have a slight blue tint?
