HID is high intensity discharge.

headlights create light by high voltage arcing in a xenon filled tube instead of tungsten fillament in halgogen..

AEs are angle eyes. Factory rings.

DDEs are aftermarket daylight demon eyes.

ZKW’s are one of two European OEM setups (the other is Bosch which are more expensive, much harder to get in the US and are essentially the same as the ZKW’s). ZKW’s are expensive not just for the fact that they’re OEM but they’re made in Europe (think high labor costs) and they’re more expensive to import then the Depo’s especially with the Euro being very high against the US dollar.

Depo’s are literally knock offs of the ZKW’s, they use a slightly thinner projector and a little cheaper materials but if budget is your main goal they’re still a very good light. They’re made in Taiwan (production and import costs are much lower.) Depo’s are a great choice if price is the most important factor.

If your ever intrested in some new headlights send me a e-mail LostSurfer47@aol.com

K = Kelvin = the color 'temperature' of the bulbs. Daylight is 4100, you want to shoot as close to that as possible with whatever lighting setup you get.
