    You can find plenty on eBay nowaday. Not sure about quality though. It'll be hit or miss. Everything now seems to be made in China.

    im sure a vendor here would be able to at least source a good place to get good quality set of HID's. For some reason i just dont trust ebay products sometimes :dunno:

    Thanks for the awesome link Robert!! I will also be ordering a set from them. Did you notice that it sure looks like AB's Viper on the HID web link?

    Cheers

    I will be trying to get a group buy going on here for an HID setup pretty soon. I have them on my 97GTS and they work great. I've had the same brand on my Audi for almost a year with no problems.
    These are high quality ballasts and bulbs and this company gives you a lifetime warranty on the ballasts and the bulbs. They are available in the whole color spectrum.
    If I can get 10 people I can get the price reduced down to $140shipped or maybe even less!

    I have boughten 2 sets from ebay so far. They cost me about $45us plus $45 shipping and Bullsh=t charges.

    Jobber in Canada is $375. plus taxes and shipping.

    they work awesome in the low beam (nearly as good as highbeam) so I've decided to order a set for my highbeams in the Viper.

    I'll get them from ebay again. It seems that all the ones I looked at were made in Germany (expensive) or Hong Kong. Prices are the same, but other than language Hong Kong stuff doesn't get the extra $30 Border Bullsh=t charges.

    Send me a pm and I'll send you pics of how I've installed the transformers to the headlight cover.

    I bought mine from R&J distributing like the link above posted and i am happy with them. No issues at all with them. I didnt want the BLUEISH color lights like all the hondas so i have them order me a set of 4200K bulbs with the kit. It is the brightest white light and no blue to it at all and i love them.

    THe brand of the HID kit is Apexcone and I really trust the distributor (John Sharp). I'm in the process of finishing my writeup for installation on my Viper. As soon as I do that I will give it to him to put on his site and get us a great deal on a GB. I'll let you guys know next week.

    Here's quick pic of the difference. I have the 5000K bulbs which give just a slightly bluer hue but the 4300K are what most of the OEM HIDs (BWM,Mercedes,Lexus,etc.) use and is the brightest, whitest light. I just like the slightly bluer tint and there is almost no perceptable loss of light. In the GB you can choose whichever K you want.

    BTW, the halogen bulb in the other side is a Sylvania SilverStar which are supposed to look similar to HID and have a very white output. I guess you just can't match HIDs for whiteness and brightness.

    Better yet send your pictures with a bit of directions to Y2k and maybe he can put them in the illustrated section. Just an idea.

    You can put HIDs in high and low but finding a good place for both ballasts will be the problem. I only added lows since I rarely use my highs, but I've considered doing the highs as well.
