I need advice on some H.I.D lighting

So ive been looking to get an hid conversion kit for my truck but im not sure which to buy. im finding xenon kits on e bay for 30 dollars and xenon kits for 120.00. All are single beams. Whats with the really cheap ones? are they any good? Let me know if anyone has got these. Ive been educating myself on these kits cause i dont know anything about them, except for the basic stuff. I would greatly appreciate any help on this.

Go for the bi-xenon kits so that you can have a high and low beam, they're usually about the same price.

I got one of the 30 dollar bi-xenon sets, and I have had no problems with them at all -they are pretty well constructed. I'm not sure what the real difference would be between those and the more expensive ones.

Make sure you leave your stock wiring intact to be able to hook stock headlights back up. I got HID and a ballast went out a week in. I just recently( a year later) bought a new ballast.

look up the seller xenonwholesale88 on Ebay. Me and alot of my friends used him and it was at my door step in 2 days. His single beams run $60, very good quality also.
