Default HID Setup Questions

I'm sorry if I sound like an idiot but Im lost. If I want HID headlights, do I need just bulbs? If not what parts do I need and how much will it run me. Thanks :D

I have an 04 sl if that helps

If you do have xenon they you going to need D2R bulbs which range from $10-$40 a set. And if you have halogen housing they you are going to need a 9006 HID kit

good D2R should run like 20-40 bucks a set. I suggest euroefx you can easily find it in ebay there are a great set and good light output. Also I suggest 6000k for great output visibility now if you want that blue output then 10000k is your choice of style but remember it won't give the best light output

Now if you want the xenon headlight housing that's going to run you a pretty penny. Between 300-700 for the set

Default Re: HID

Ugh. You two are confusing as hell. Lol.

The kits from max power are usually around $85 I think.

Now before you order anything you need to know what you have in there right now. Do you have Xenon lights or just regular halogen lights?

If you have halogen you need the whole kit which is around $85 I think. If you already have xenon headlights all you need is just the bulb. And If I'm right it's D2S and NOT D2R.

Can't remember how much they go for these days, but the kits are top notch. Send him a PM.

Troy, don't make the same mistaken I made! I was sure I had halogen lights so I went and invested in HID kits for the headlights and the fogs. When I went to Hero's (Omar) house, he told me I had the Xenon lights. So I ended up buying some HID bulbs from Omar. And just giving away a set of HID's to my friend. When it was all finished it looked awesome! Do your research and save time and money! Don't worry about questions and good luck!
