HID Headlights vs H3 Driving Lights
pictures are of the HID headlight i just installed (5000K)
vs the standard H3n driving lights i have which when i had the standard
H4 bulb installed i thought the H3's were doing a good job,now until i can change out the bulbs to HID or get some 5000K H4 bulbs they are not worth the trouble of turning on :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nice! Exactly which kit did you get? I bought one off eBay but the seller sent the wrong one and I had to send it back.

PIAA is a brand name for some high dollar lights,probbaly worth every penny but HID lighting is a "system" that uses a real xenon bulb and requires a ballast system to light it off, used on the high end cars nowadays is alot brighter than halogen lights by about 3 times and the great thing is they use less power than a halogen headlight they really aren't taht expensive per se,but u can buy alot of H4 headlight bulbs for the price of one "system" is pretty much a plug and play system if u can find the room to put it w/o cutting cables to save space,
spent something like two hours cutting up my cables and modifying them for a cleaner install because now i'm going to install a system for my driving lights too and the space i saved frm first install will house the 2nd system

Another advantage of these lights is that they are brighter yet they do not blind oncoming traffic like the halogens do.

How much did it cost you for your lighting system? And if you don't mind can you send me the details: <!-- e --><a href="mailto:goldwinger1984@yahoo.com">goldwinger1984@yahoo.com</a><!-- e -->
