HID's in blacked out Headlights

I am considering buying a 9007 bi-xenon 8000K hid kit on monday and was wondering if anyone has them in blacked out headlights like mine. I am also considering a single beam H3 8000K hid for my projector fogs as well.

PS dont care if you dont like hids

but yea, anyone done this and have pics?

Something to think about, if you bought those from Vertex Racing or someone off of ebay, they might melt. The set I have in mine started to melt with the bulbs they gave me, but I caught it in time and changed back to stock bulbs. If they get really hot, or any hotter than stock you might want to keep an eye out for cracking in the chrome or the (rainbow) discoloration affect.

from everything ive read hid's actually burn cooler than halogens, but i will definetely keep an eye on them

maybe you got a bad set, ive read a ton of positive reviews

HIDs uses less energy than halogens, but because they're brighter, they're hotter...

I beleive what Oh5Edge is talking about is the blacked out headlites and foglites on ebay. Maybe they are a lower quality material?? I know that xlt 4x4 lifted on 20s has hids and his are cooler. there's a thread about it.

yo uwon't fry anything. The hid kits only use the stock harness to tell them to turn on.....almost as a switch. cooler temp than halogens. you got nothing to worry about.
