Honestly, Any of them are going to do the job well. The Group buy kit comes with a redundant harness that isn't really utilized (but that J/O's going to come in here and tell you in all CAPS you'll need).

We've had three failed bulbs in all the kits we've sold. No other problems. Sounds troublesome to me!

I have had my genuine Philips kit for about 4 yrs now without incident. Best lighting imporvement I ever made. I went with the tru HId color. Not the goofy colored looking ones!

Hate to hijack, but do you sell bulbs by thierselves. One of my 6000k bulbs (That I bought off of someone on Ebay) burnt out. I'd love to find a local place that can sell just a 9006 bulb...

Steve, don't advertise them but yes we can get replacement bulbs as well. It's $60.00 for a set in your choice of color.

im looking more so towards the 5k. everyone off club gp states go with the clubgp buy and get the lo/hi bi-xenons.... otherwise i would think of just going wbs... the only thing thats awesome is overnight shipping.

No pickup option but I generally give local guys free shipping because of that.

That I can't do. I don't have a reliable source for them. What kind of ballasts are you running?

Well guys, looked like I have hijacked a thread for no reason at all. My bulbs were good, my ballast is fried. Switched the bulbs around and the same side worked...

Well Fish, make me an offer and get to either Glendale Heights or Lombard and the ballast is yours....

Actually, try switching the ballasts from side to side. 9 times out of 10 it's a bad ground. I bet you your ballast is fine.

CATZ HID is (was I should say) the way to go. I got a kit a few years back and they are awesome. Great reliability and best kit EVER made!!! Too bad you can't purchase them anymore. I was lucky enough to find a BRAND NEW kit on ebay a couple of months ago and bought it for spares (that is if I ever need it).

Do what Mike says and try swapping ballasts. I did all the work to make sure that I had a bunk one first. If it still doesnt work Ill shoot you an offer.

Shaun.. not taking away from WBS at all...


just get the CLUBgp group buy one.. they all do the same thing.

but if you want to stay vendor specific.. get the WBS.



If you need me to install them for you, hit me up.


and yes.. 8k is RICER... go no higher than 6000k... i had 5000k in my cobalt and loved them
