Keep in mind that even though the blue looks pretty, it doesn't give off as bright of light as a 4100k would...I have 5300k on my car.

HID is great, I believe katz was the most popular manufacturer. Also i think that a while ago the government was still going through jurisdiction on weather or not a real HID is legal. Maybe somone else knows.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

I guess your asking this maybe because there is a sale on this site. Check this >>> HID Lights. If I was into show I would snatch these up or the counterparts.
