I run them on everything, I have never been flashed with them on, its easier on the eyes than the halogens. any color temp higher than 4500k is worthless unless your buying them to look 'cool'. A lot of HID suppliers bastardize the color temps, like 10,000K for instance....back in the day, there was 4300k (white) and 6000k (blue tint). Your eyes can't see the blue light as good as they can the white.

You can go to DDM tuning and buy the $40 sets, the ones in my plow last about 6 mo before I have to replace balasts, but they're all lifetime warranty, so they just send you new ones, no big deal. My truck i've also replaced a couple times. In my car, I have the real deal, Phillips, $350, they've been in there for 12 years, and I haven't touched a thing on them. So I mean, you get what you pay for.

The newer DDM kits from my experience and everything else I've heard are crap. Not that they were great to start with but the kits from a few years ago are significantly better. Seems the ones made within the last year or so are constant problems.

So far so good with the lights I got from Dave (Mr. Elite). Love how much better the visibility is vs. Sylvania ultra visions I used to run. Going to put these in the Pete, my pickup and the X-Treme V. No sense getting the hi-lows dont need high beams. When following cars it's funny to see there yellow light in front of them and my white light all around them and lighting the signs and ditches ahead of them.

I have the JJ brackets and run the 7" round headlights switched to lens that take the h1 bulbs i believe. In The chrome catalogs you can get replacement bulbs for sealed halogen lights for the 5" round 7" round and the 4"x6" bulbs that have a clear lens work great. there are pics in my other thread about repainting the pete
