The K is the temp of the lights. 6000 is white with a hint of blue. 5000 is less blue. 12000 is like purple. 3000 or 3400 is yellow. The watts are the brightness.

A 5000K or 6000K 35 watt kit would be perfect for you. Not yellow and not blue. Just white light. Most HID kits are plug and play. If you get the 55 watt kit they you will need the wiring harness to draw power from the battery. If you get the hi/low kit you keep your high beam function and it comes with the wiring for the battery.

Do you just tell them what bulb type you are using, I have H4's for headlights, not the standard bulbs as the factory.

Yeah. Just select the bulb type when ordering.

Your lighst are probably not aimed properly or the lenses could be yellowing. But yes the 35 watt kit will give you more light: This system provides 3200-3400 Lumens at 35 watts and an amazing 5000 Lumens at 55 watts per bulb. In comparison, a typical halogen bulb produces 900-1200 lumens.

you only got fogs stock with the se-5 package

se-5 package includes:
Cruise controle
Power windows and door locks
tilt steering wheel
fog lights
cd player
carpet
chrome accents (bumpers, grill ect)

in my trucks model year mazda didnt offer the se5 package on the b23000 and i have yet to see a
b4000 with it, you had these options

B4000 4.0 4x4 supercab
B2300 2.3 4x2 singlecab
(no B3000)

factory options
4 colors to choose from
5 speed manual or Auto trans
no A/c or A/c

then dealer installed options like the ones i posted on the web site

basicly all 08 and very few 09 mazdas where basic basic basic trucks
with just Am/Fm radios

oh wow, yeah i was pricing a mazda when looking for a truck and their option levels were weird, it was basically you either had nothing, or you had everything. ford was a little more flexible on their options. i still wish i bought the Level II (07) that they had on the lot that was only 1,500 more then my truck. it had 1,200 km on it, had been in an accident and was rebuilt by ford, the hood was misaligned but it was still sweet haha. but oh well, i love my truck, i just need to make it 4x4.

I had a similar add on kit on my 99' and love the switch they send with that kit. It mounts just above the center console from what I remember and blends nice.

how i read it they says you dont "NEED" it but its recomended to use the relay wiring
"Use this relay harness to connect HIDs to cars with very small gauge wiring that cannot supply the initial surge current required to light the bulbs reliably. Symptoms indicating the harness is required would be intermittent starting or lights going out after being turned on for several minutes and requiring you to turn the lights off and back on for them to turn back on again.

Recommended for all 50W HID installations but most American and European cars work at 35W/50W without the harness. The harness is definitely recommended for Quad's and other ATVs or when running multiple HID installations. This harness is a fused relay isolation harness capable of supplying 40A at 12vdc."

Hi/Lo kits come with a Hi/Lo controller that has wires that go to the battery.

if i were to get the 55w kit with the 8000k bulbs will they really look like the 35w 6000k lights?
also if im only running the heads will i need to get the extra harness?
also i herd that the hi/lo kits tend to have a brighter lo beam then the hi beam... is this true for this company, i use my hi beams alot so i think it would be worth the extra 20

Thanks
-Andy

Anyone know if it keeps your lows on with the high's or do you need to relay the factory harness separately to keep lows on with highs?
