Just wondering if anyone is selling an hid kit or not? OR anyone know what brand of hid kit to look into and where can I get one for under 300. I got the depo dde performance lights from umnitza and I want to upgrade to hid. HMm Also how many kalvens for the HID kit should I get? Also since the depo's use h7 would I have to find a hid kit that supports h7 or can I also use the stock 9006 wires? Thanks to any1 that can help me out.
Yea personally imo anything over 5000k is rice rocket blue. I like the 5000k look also. nice and crisp bright white light. By any chance you any good web sites or places to get a good hid kit? I know Phillips and Hella kits are top of the line but kind of pricey. Is McCulloh any good though never heard of them before? I found some on ebay that are pretty worth the price. Some guy is selling Phillips ballast without the bulbs right now and the bid is up to like 20 bucks. This other guy is selling his e46 hid kit for 200 with the bulbs. Also since I got the depo dde that came with the h7 set up does that mean I gotta find a kit that supports h7 or can I also use 9006 set up?
I use Xtec Kit in my car 5000k which has always been my favorite Teperature. I have a friend who sells McCulloch, but Xtec kit is the best bulb for your money. E-mail me if your intrested in Xtec's or I can give you a name for McCulloch

Yeah they come with 4500K. This is what you see when a 545i pulls up behind you...the bulb is pure white but the beam/light it emmits is yellowish-not cool IMO!
At 5000k you'll get a brighter white bulb and whiter beam. Anything above that the bulb becomes bluer and the beam emitted is whiter until the point of 6000k-7000k at this point the beam becomes bluer and the bulb looks purple.
The best of all worlds here lies in the 6000k region...you get a cool looking bluish tint on your bulb and your beam/light is nice and white!
I got 6000k....but i'm still trying to figure out why my bulbs don't have any blue tint in them. A better example of 6000k is T-Mac325 sig and pictures in the product review and photo sections

could be used ....I know 2005 Maximas use up to 8000k but those cars have poorly aimed headlights that point upwards away from the road...especially the Maximas...
Most of the time you're also probably seeing projector headlights with regular Xenon cool blue Halogen bulbs in them.. That would be the best and cheapest way to fake HIDs. In fact the way to spot real HIDs is to not look at the bulb but look at the sharpness of the beam pattern...I notice this last night driving home in traffic an MBenz jeep pulled up along side me and from my level I could see that his Projector bulb was whitish blue my 1st thought was 8000k HIDs....but the beam pattern was terribly weak and yellowish on the the road. My HID beam was farther out and whiter that his....so I knw he had some aftermarket cool blue Halogen rip offs in there.
