    There are several places to order from. Just do online reviews. I ordered mine from a dealer on eBay. I just shopped around on a little bit, made sure to read their reviews and ratings. I love my kit. I got the kit and a relay kit for less than $50 shipped, and its all plug and play. If you don't feel comfortable with eBay, one of the most common and highly rated companies is DDM tuning.

    I like DDM tuning. They have a good selection of HID kits, and for not a whole lot of $$$$. Plus each of their kits comes with a lifetime warranty.

    No problem billetman. Like I said, do a lil research and you'll find a good deal on a good kit. One thing though, buy a relay kit. It prolongs the life of the ballasts it you do. Plus if you you have some high electrical demands, it wont affect the head lights as much.

    sstoner911, i have not tried any local shops. Living in Wichita there aren't many local shops.
    Rockstarrchevy81, sounds good. Hope the kit works out well for you.
    TELORVEHC, I might have to try the website you gave me, and see what its about.

    Thanks again to everyone.

    I ordered mine from vvme.com and have been very happy with them. The ballasts are made by Hella and the bulbs are Sylvania. There's a post on here by Rotaryenginepete that covers HIDs. Good post, and helps with install if you need it.
