Good cheap HID kits.
http://www.ddmtuning.com/(They do take a while to ship them to you) No high beam function though. I run the DDM brand on my quad and my friend runs the DDM brand in his GTO.

I have had a set of Silverstars in my truck for about 4 years now. Haven't replaced them once.

A buddy of mine had an 85 Olds Delta with sealed beam headlights and he swapped them over to Silverstars and in about 6 months he went through about 8 lights, mostly low beams, and a couple high beams. So it's not just me with the problem.

Those look good,but if I end up doing HIDs, I'm going for a dual beam kit. I live in the country and when I move, am still going to live in the country, so it's nice to have high beams on those long dark country backroads.

Yeah for my truck I want high beams as well. I just haven't got them yet.

I had a pair of Eurolites too. Not much different than the Silverstars. About the same price too.

Trigger, do you have the regular Silverstars or the Ultras?

I bought these bulbs about 4 years ago and just had one blow out, so these pics are how I'm rolling for a while

But they cost 20 bucks however I can't remember for the life of me where I got them!

They're brighter than the stockers and the high beams are very impressive, they look blue at first but after they warm up it's just more of a blue tint in a white beam

Here's some pics and you can see the reflection on top of the bumper regarding the color difference





If anyone knows where to get these bulbs let me know

Those look pretty nice Eric. Try Ebay?

I'm also pretty sure green and purple are illegal in most places. Even the HID manufacturers warn of the 12000k+ kits being for off road use.

I'd probably go 6k or 8k low beams and 2500-3000k fogs.
VVME is like 26 or 28 dollar shipping there are cheaper out there..

I get pwned on shipping for everything anyways. I'll pay more for shipping if they send it USPS and as a gift so I don't have to pay out the nose for brokerage fees when it gets delivered.
