Where to order HID kits

hey, ive been reading around on here for a while now, and ive seen plenty of threads on HID's, but none that mention where you guys order your kits from other than ebay. im not huge on Ebay so ive been looking for a reputable site to order a set of HID's from.

ive seen a few people that have ordered theirs from VVME.
has anyone tried this set? theyre from Xtralights.
http://http://www.xtralights.com/ind...S&Category=390

theyre a little more expensive there but from what ive read you get what you pay for??

any help would be cool, i used to be on these forums under a different name, i think it was HurleyInt701 or something along those lines but that was a while ago so i dont remember.

im kind of thinking id like to keep the Hi/Low beam option, both in HID if its possible, but if not how do the single low beam kits work? i remember reading somewhere that if they vibrate too much they can turn a red color and then go out...

im running the PIAA Halogens in Black headlights right now, im def. happy with the PIAA's, they brighter than the Silverstars ive used before and they have blue in the light at different angles because they have the blue cap on them, but im thinking HID is the way to go..

I heard the only true single bulb hid that is high and low beam is a motorized bulb that goes up when u turn the high beam switch on, and the motor that moves it burns out in about 6 months from what i hear. obviously we only have single bulb vehicles so if u want true hid's ur gonna have to lose ur high beams. idk for sure if its true or not, but i have heard it from more than one person that owns a shop.
