Hid Kit Group Buy

Check the links at the beginning of this thread for differences in Philips and Xtec for pictures. I don't have pictures for 35w and 50w. The 50w will be brighter. Around 5000K produces the most light as it is the whitest light, more than 4300k. 50w will be brighter than 35w but I don't know if that will make up a the difference if you choose to get 6000k or 7000k. The temperature really determines how they will look. For my I like to get the most light. Anyone else got some input on this? At some point I plan on trying out different kits and setting up people to get photos for me - not soon though.

Also is importat to you explain how to avoid the failure bulb message from the computer, cause they will need to make some easy part to avoid that. Also a 50W is very dangerous for the volvo ECU, cause the first 2-4 seconds the HIDS ballast take 80W of power to start from the factory harness with is made for 75W, and we are talking about 80W from the 35W ballast, the 50W takes like 100W on the start so it can burn something on the car, the ground of the headlight is directly comming from the ECU of the car.

Great prices and the hids is amazing, i just want to help you to avoid any problem on the future, we have more than 6 years on the hid market.

LOL. So many comments. Midas brakes life time warranty, brembo monoblocks none. Guess midas are better. ;)

Man I don't know why I even bother. I just got slaughtered over on TurboBricks by some asshole Buzz. Do we all understand that we drive Volvos??? Anyone????

I have had the HIDs on my car since I have owned them and I have seen no signs of damage to the harness. I also do not get any bulb failure warnings unless the bulb actually burns out, as it did and I have now replaced (no more light warning). These kits are completely plug and play and are designed to be used with the stock wiring harness.

Want to read my PMs? 3 people on you list I refered to you. I got 2 more PMs today for a budget hid kit and I also sent them your way. Have not heard back so I assume they will sign up soon. I never said this was anything less than a good kit. Its just not OEM like some people want. So I will say again fo anyone who di not IM/PM me. If you are on a budget, this is an awesome deal.

Thanks Chuck. Sorry. Just felt like I was being attacked just as I was over on T-Bricks. Thank you for the referrals.

Not sure if this will help or confuse people but here goes:

This shows the ranges of colours. 14000kelvin is UV light I believe and will look quite purple without a lot of light output. 5000-6000kelvin is the closest to outside daylight you will get.

I belive the hottest philips kit is 6k. Hella goes to 7k.

Just a personal rub but 30k kits? Hows that work? The output on bulbs vary a lot from one make to another. Maybe best to get a shot with the same brand.

Here are Philips bulbs. Bottom to top 4800, 5000, 6000

I wouldn't recommend getting 30000k kits. Definately worth looking at below 10000k though.

Thanks for putting up the graph Chuck. I learned in chemistry a lot about this but there is so much more that can make it more confusing. The basics are shown best in the graph.

01+ ecus are different that yours, also i know that your kits are plug and play, we have 6 years on the market of hids, we sells our brand to most of the US dealers for non hid cars. Thats why im just telling you to be careful about this. Just in case dude.

On P2s you can reflash for HIDs and use 35watt ones no problem. Did it to the S60 and a S80. On older cars resistors are the easiest way. Atleast IMHO

we did it at the Dealer cause we sells the hids kits to the dealer and they sells the new cars like OEM hids and we didnt get good results with the reflash so we did other way with the message and was fine.
