EBay HIDs: WORTH IT!!!

so i ordered a set of hids from this store on ebay (xneon warehouse) for 75 bucks all together, kind of thinking they were gonna be some cheap piece of crap, but they are awesome. i definetly reccomended them. i got 6000k's. i guess you have to buy the right set some ARE cheap i hear. But if you are looking for some, definetly buy them from xneon warehouse, the are the real deal. ( i guess im being a salesman lol)


what they looked like coming out of the box (the ebay pic)

yeah pretty much you just change the bulb, plug in the new bulb into the included ballast box, and then plug in the stock bulb plug into the ballast. you don't have to cut any wires if thats what you wanted to know

they are sealed for sure. they seem pretty heavy duty. the case is aluminum and has a seal between the two halves. pretty heavy too, almost a pound each.

hmmm..if i get bored and have extra cash looks like it would be a cool easy thing to do. and since i have no highbeams right now for some reason, it would make my regular lights alot better at night
