Default H.I.D kits?

Looking to get a HID kit for the stang...just wondering what a good brand is or what ones you've bought and liked. I was looking on Ebay and there are like a million different ones.

Just looking for some opinions...thanks

I bought my 4300K from the WBodyStore, and they've worked fine in even 0 degree weather. Because it's a plug and play with no external power source from the battery, mine sometimes need a flick of the headlight switch for both to come on in the extreme weather, but they've never let me down. I can't remember what brand they are -- and WBS isn't loading right now -- but I can check on it later.

yea I had/have HID's on my GTP and I had the same issue with them starting. I got an upgraded wire harness from SUVlights.com and it stopped that. The harness plugs into the lights and then runs to the battery so you have more power for the HID's to fire up. I bought my HID's from a group buy on clubgp along time ago. ONn of my bulbs went out and I just havent bought the replacement bulbs yet. So on my GTP im running regular bulbs again...Id probably get more light holding a candle out the window...

I can get a kit on ebay for like 70 bucks...with german ballasts and a 2 yr warranty. Some of the mustang guys have bought them and they seem to work fine but im a little worried about the quality. especially because of the price. just looking for some opinions...

I've also noticed a crop of less-expensive HIDs on ebay. Don't know if they're budget materials or if that's just the way the market is heading as they gain popularity.

The only quality HIDs your going to get is from a factory kit. I was burned on buying a ebay HID kit for the GP so I went through ZZP for my kit on the Regal.

Also Joe, ZZP sells individual bulbs as well if you want a replacement for the GP.

Just dont buy anything over 5000k cause then its gets RICEY and BLUE

4000K-4500K is the bestest.

I love my wbodystore 5000K HID's. Anything over that looks rice, and has less light output.

lol Well then I guess im rice then, After I order my 8k HID's im gonna order 2 huge fucking mufflers with LED's in the tip to slap under the car...then you can really call me rice.
And about the light output, does it really matter? Going from shitty halogen bulbs to any HID is gonna be an improvement.

fuck just to piss you guys of I should put some 30k's on my Merc...

8k isnt that bad...either is 6k but like I said I want a little blue tint to the lights I think it will match the car well...since it it blue.

well since its a huge deep blue hue hopefully cops will pull him over. :P i know some areas they are strict on that. so that might teach him a lesson. who knows they just might decide to do a full car search just to piss him off. then again im just against the plug in and play kits. yes i have one in my car but i have a clean cut off line on my to reduce glare. they were built in the projector in the headlight unit of my car. in other cars they arent meant for plug in and play and just blind everyone. not recommended period.

I am in the same boat as Joe.... Lots of choices these days but I will probably end up supporting W Body Store. Mike is a good guy...

lol Its ok...I keep the drugs, guns and dead hookers in my other car...the trunks bigger.

Maybe, before they throw me in lockup for having HID's and blinding everyone on the road, they will also give me a ticket for loud exhaust and no cat's on the car. That will teach me a lesson!! Im a bad man.
