    Default HID Light Roll-Call ~ Who's Got them? What type do you have? Where did you get them

    Ok, I'm doing a poll for everyone with HID lights. Let's just get some information on this so I can move and try to get a good HID vendor or two signed up here as a sponsor.

    If you have HID lights in any GM vehicle that you own, just reply to this thread with the following.

    - What type of HID lights you have.
    - Where did you get them?
    - Did you install yourself or have them put in?
    - Any special kit that you put in? Give specifics if you did.
    - Anything else you can comment on about getting HID lights.

    I thought the battery relay harness came with all kits?

    -8000k
    -HID extreme (digital ballast)
    -250 bucks per high and per low
    -installed myself
    -have to reverse polarity
    -like all HIDs, they suck but look cool. Quality kit with slim ballasts, no burn outs. Pics on my big build thread part two.

    -had fog light HIDs when I bought it, they are 8000k and seem to warm up fast, the install was garbage though.

    I got some off eBay. They are 6500K. Cost me about $35 shipped to my house. I got a relay kit off eBay too for $10. Installed both by myself. Took me a little while because I took my time and hid all the wires and my wife wanted to help me. So far no complaints. My friend complimented mine the other night, he said his didn't light up the road as well as mine.

    I've been talking with Spencer about his website and seeing if he wants to be a sponsor on here or not. Glad to know that you had a good experience with him and his business.
