Smile Xenon Headlights

I'm looking at replacing my stock headlights on my 2001 Ranger with the cool looking Xenon lights. I've found ones on ebay for a few bucks and Hellas in my Summit catalog for $30-40. Any info & suggestions appreciated so I get the best bang for the $. Thx in advance.

dont bother ordering from DDM unless you live within a half hour of them and can go to their shop to deal with their bullshit. took me a week longer than they said it would just to get mine, and theyre customer service is shit

Indeed, my buddy in WI had issues with ~3 week delays in gettting his kit from DDM. Get your kit from HID4U on ebay. They're legit and I got mine in like 4 days. Had them for almost a year now.

Those xenon bulbs you see on eBay are horrible. What you want is the actual xenon HID kit. Make sure you get the right thing.

I just got a return message from High Performance Bulbs.com & they have the conversion kits/bulb starting at $85 and "Fred" gave me the rundown on watts/color. I'll keep shopping, but for those of you that have done it, are there any glitches in installation-parts needed etc?
Thx, Chad

You have a picture of them 8000k's? Would love to see them . I have 8000k Headlights and 12,000k Fog Lights from VVME.com. Been using there's for a good year and half and can't complain, but I'm hearing a lot of talk about this eBay seller Autoaluminate so talk to me guys .

Would I be able to get the same color like that if I buy his replacement bulbs "BUT" using a VVME 35watt regular ballast? Or would I have to buy another kit?
