OR, if you have to deal with the inspection BS every so many years and need high beams to pass it, you're stuck with them even if you don't need them.

Just sayin

My lowbeams


My HighBeams


I used to have a 35w 5000K HID kit in my stock housings and then my eyes were opened to projectors. Blows them way out of the water. 35w Phillips 85122+ 4300K FTW

Yeah having Low beams only is nice for city only but driving on roads with no light other than your headlights you are gonna want/NEED Highbeams. price for a Plug in play kit is roughly $50 +/- and about 15 minutes to install, the Projector kit I have cost me $375 but it is worth it. Plus you dont blind anyone and you have highbeams and my 35W kit is way brighter than my PNP kit ever was... Pricier Yes, Worth it YES.

The only way to get kits from them right now is to order online.
i read that part.. claiming that you're not, and then doing are totally different things.

They had an update as of a few days ago stating that they currently are not doing in store pick ups though..

the 35w HIDs are over twice as bright as 55w halogens so I don't know why anyone would need a 55w HID kit. Especially if youre putting 55's in halogen lenses. That's just plain overkill and obnoxious IMO.

Also do some research on color temp and decide for yourself before deciding on 6k or 8k. Just because everyone on a forum thinks you should get 6k or 8k doesnt mean its a smarter choice.
4300 or 5k is the smarter choice.
