Hid kit

What do you think about them? Is 6000k too bright? Are they even legal? Thinking about getting one..

a lot of people will say they're illegal and everything but in my opinion I think 5k is a good HID kit to go for. 35w.

They are illegal under federal law.

In my opinion they are dangerous to other drivers on the road, federal law agrees.

I've been running a 6k 55 watt kit with smoked OE style headlights for probably a year and a half now. Haven't had problems with any of it so far. The smoked lights cuts down on alot of the headlights but they're still a whole hell of alot better than halogen bulbs!
