got an HID kit with 9000K H1 bulbs. one of them burned out and i need to find one asap! anyone know where i can buy it from online since its illegal here in socal and cant find it nowhere. thanx in advance
burning out in less than a year is not as uncommon as you might think...sometimes they are banged around a lot in shipping, packing, etc. (hid's are more sensitive to vibration.)
he got it installed from some local auto store, but yea they still get it shipped from somewhere. so r you saying that if i get the bulbs theres a lot of chance their gonna burn out again? as long as i get the kit though
btw the site you refered have the 6000 and 8000k kit. i want to buy the bulbs by itself only. just one or maybe 2. sorry but i have no clue about HIDs. should i jsut look for H1 or it has to be 9000K H1 bulb? and does any 9000K H1 bulb work with any kit brand? thanx
Try doing a search on ebay, and see if anyone is selling 9000k bulbs. BUT before you do that make sure it is just your bulb that burned out, not the bulb ballasts. Try putting the good bulb in, and see if it works
A note about HID bulbs. They tend to have color shift. The color temperature changes higher with usage. If you only replace one bulb, the color maybe different. This is why it is recommended that you replace both bulbs at the same time.
Really BAD reality TV is the reason I stopped watching MTV.
thanx for all ur posts. for sure the ballast is ok, the bulb is the only thing burned out. and thanx for that advice tony, i guess i have to buy bulbs at once. isnt there any site where i can buy it from actually, anything other than ebay
you cant just get the bulbs, you have to get the kit. I have the matrix kit, and they are so awesome. i recommed them. try on ebay, i know a website called wide open throttle, i dont know if they still sell them though, but thats where i got mine
thanx a lot man. its better than not finding anything at all! i though 2 were for 85$. anyone else know for a cheaper price? im not bitching about this, but the cheaper the better, and im sure someone has it for cheaper thanx tony, been a big help for the day.
