HIDs on headlights

I'm wanting to put HIDs on my 2000 gt. I found so many on the net I don't know which one to use. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get them from?

Re: HIDs on headlights

i got mine from xentec i believe thats the name. i only went with low beam only, but you can buy the hi\lo deal for like 60 bucks. i haven't had any problems with them. just make sure your connections are good.

I heard VVME.com had good kits. I was thinking of buying a set from them. HID kits are illegal but it's not really enforced.

vvme was the only kit i ever had go out on me...that was my first time using an HID kit. almost got me to go back to halogens but a friend got me to order a ddm kit and i haven't gone back since

but i've heard good things about vvme though so my issue may have only been a random event

Re: HIDs on headlights

here you go man...if you just want a single beam kit for the bulb type pick 9007...if you want a hi and lo then pick the 9007 hi/lo bulb (of course it'll add to the cost)..color temp is up to you. i'm a 5-6k person myself

http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/Ap...Raptor-HID-Kit

you don't need anything else like the harness or eliminator...all you need are the bulbs and ballasts that come in the initial kit

Re: HIDs on headlights

the headlight is a 9007 bulb and the fog is a 899 bulb.

the way the bulb fits in the housing is different

But you said they're not that bright? Or is that because you got the 35w?
