    Thise are not HIDs... They are Xenon Gas halogen bulbs... They are a great upgrade from factory bulbs... I've been using Luminics Pure Blue buls on all of my vehicles...

    I soon will be gettin HID's from DDM Tuning though...

    I got a set of 8000k plug and play H.I.D.'s on my 09 silverado and i absolutely love them. They are super bright. The 8000k bulbs are slightly blue which i personally like the best but they have a range of colors out there. The only thing that im not fond of with H.I.D.'s is constantly getting "beamed" because people think i have my high beams on but its whatever well worth the purchase couldn't be happier.

    @trition, Oh ok haha so i guess these are just HID "look alikes" then? I guess I was/am a bit confused on which is which but after I looked at the site you linked i found out a bit more but thank you for clearlifying the diffrence

    @walls, haha yea I went out with the girl right after I pluged them in and well i swore 2 cars flashed at me so i flashed back hahah hoepfully they wont make that mistake twice :P

    ok here are the photos they arnt that great but still get the general idea better then the normal plain old yellow


    the one shot of the lights before that was some what decent had the flash on for some strange reason but all in all for less then 20$ (shipping and handeling included) I am very happy. Love the cheap but effective ways to set my truck appart from so many look alikes!

    I installed a set of the Blue Xenon bulbs in my 1994 K1500 and they are bright.

    But they are also 100w each, which is causing the Headlamp switch to overheat.

    I am on my third switch now.
    Pavement sucks... :grrrrrr:
