No worries man there a company alot of us use on here to get HIDs at good prices just google them and you can find them. There's also a thread about 3 below this one in the exterior category talking about them right now. I only know of 1 person who doesn't like them on here and the tons of others like them alot for the price that's what id do and am soon!

----------

Btw bulb type is 9007 you don't need the adapter or anything and 5000k to 1000k is the range that starts off white and gets more blue as you go up I think im orderin 8k

Yes get a HID kit. I also sell kits on this site. Some members have bought my kits and loves it to death . If you want that white light with a blue look, I would go with 8000k. If you want just light, then get 4500-6000k. I run 8000k in the summer and 6000k in the winter but looking towards putting in some 8000k bi xenon's or 55w kit. I don't know. If you need any help or questions answered about HIDs, talk to me as I know much about them .

I have a set of regular 9007 bulbs that are the "xenon white" with the blue coloring on them. Got 'em on evilBay a while back pretty cheap.

They're SUPER white and quite bright in complete darkness, but I've noticed they don't show up as well at dusk.

If you have a few extra bucks and want to experiment with that style bulb rather than get into modding/wiring the HID setups, you might be surprised with the results.
