Is this what you're running on your car, and how good are they? And do you need a wiring harness with these kits?

I know a guy running them on his 1st gen box. He loves them, and they look very good. Only drawback is what he has is low beam only.

Cool, thanks. Been on the fence with getting hids on the Trix.... miss my Mobile hids.

If Ted can give his opinion it would greatly be appreciated.

I had these HIDs. They are standard HIDs. Nothing special about them.

So where does everyone else get their HIDs? I'm really looking forward to doing this.. And I'd like to be able to do it myself, so the plug-and-play portion sounds great.

Seems to me that these two places are the same:
http://www.hidxenonheadlights.com/cart/
http://www.hidkit.com/cart/

The websites are nearly identical, as are the phone numbers. They have the 6000k BiXenon HID kits for $149.99. When I told that to a (somewhat) car-knowledgeable friend of mine, he seemed really impressed with the price, making me think it might be for just 1 side, or that they're extraordinarily crappy.

Any thoughts?

Ah. Well, that's definitely not what I want. So where should I get them from? How much did others pay for theirs (both the ones they were happy with, and the ones they weren't)?

I got mine from V-LEDS.com Hi & low beam, plug and play, 6000K blue tint(they also have purple at this output) for $89 and a discount code. I am pleased with the system, not the customer service. If I send you an e-mail asking a technical question, at least respond to me. :soapbox The only issue I have is sometimes one light will go out, I cycle the switch and they both work again. It's not that the ballasts are overheating, I have them in good air, that was what i was asking for help on in the ignored querry. SO, I recommend the product, not so much the seller.

Thanks... it's from an old Jimmy Buffett song..

They have been in for 2 weeks. The issue still happens every now and then, but usually right after start up, as I am backing out of the garage.

Didn't get these. Saw too many mixed reviews on the quality. What does everyone recommend? Everything seems hit or miss. I miss my MobileHids.

I came across this thread and was hoping to breathe a little life back into it. HID's is the next mod I want to do on my when I can.

Probably like most, I'd like to find the ones for me that will give the best "bang for the buck". So more personal 1st hand experience and/or opinions wanted. :)

Also anyone that's used or heard/seen anything about HID's in the OEM lense housings for the 2008+ tC's since they are a little different than the previous OEM ones.

^^ thanks, that's definitely good to know. The right company is the most important part.
So maybe there'll be a good chance that issues if any with my type of OEM housings would be minimal at best, which would make me happy.
