That doesn't sound like it'll work to me! bs Those bulbs probably have a life span shorter than regular xenon bulbs! thumbsdown But I guess someone could give em a try and prove me wrong! For $80 I'd rather save up a little more and get the real thing... I'm glad I did! thumbsup

if you want poor man's HID's.. just get new wiring harness that can hold higher wattage and run like 120W bulbs.
