Wiring kit takes the load off the switch an instead puts it on two relays and gives you full battery voltage to the headlights ,and it pretty much plug an play. I hate HIDs on sh!t that is not meant to have it ,reminds me of the euro trash wanna bees ! But thats my 2 pennies .

HIDs in 4300k, no blue at all, just White Light. 100% better than any Halogen on the market, IMO.

Re: Brightest 9007 Bulbs ?

Yeah I dont like that blue look really . The retro solutions kit they say is really good if you go with the lower kelvin ratings which I actually think are brighter . I'm doing to much as it is I dont need to be buying light kits ( I really need a converter ) . I have the whole front end off and the motor out and bought some new lenses so wanted to put in the brightest plug and play .

Great till one of them burns out, then what ? Your screwed you cant just pop any ol bulb in an go guess thats the practicle side of me talking as I work in a parts house an see a bunch of folks come in an want replacement bulbs some of them bitch about replacement cost.
Jeeze went to replace one on an infinity the other day had to tell the lady driving it sorry maam I have to disassemble the front (grill an bumper) of your car to replace a damn headlight.

Re: Brightest 9007 Bulbs ?

if mine goes out, i unplug harness and plug in stock bulb and can be back on the road in about 2 minutes flat. I carry my stock bulbs under my back seat in case of issues. So far though, in 7k miles i've had zero issues.

Ok did not know you could do that with HIDs I have seen the guys in the Scion club here do the hid thing an I was under the impression they took special bulbs. I guess you are sying you unplug the transformer and all and go back to the reg. system???
