i buy mine from the stereo shops. i pay about $150 most of the time but have yet to do it to my ranger i have installed them in a ton of other cars from bmw to kias lol. the thing to look out for is the color number you like the blueish ones and thats good cuz the real hid is a blue. now when i say real i mean the one that was made for better vision and not just show is the mid to light blue color i want to say it was 9000k cant remember right off hand but blue is good for sure

The Kelvin range goes all the way from Amber to Purple... You're right BADINTEN, blue I believe is from the 7500-9000 range. It kinda depends on the manufacturer. I've seen some that were 8000 that looked purple... LOL

Yeah, if you want true HID's your gonna have to pay... My buddy who drives an older Acura just bought some true HID's off eBay for $45 shipped... they're sick as hell!

Good thing they're alot cheaper than they use to be! Use to be about $200 a set!

well i'm glad i came across this i worked at autozone a was a parts sales maneger DON'T GET THE BLUE ONES FROM AUTOZONE get 7000 kelvin ones. that should give u the blue tint and let u atleast see at night above 7000 kelvin gives u the shittiest visibilety at night. my fog lights are 7000 kelvin and only 50 watts. but VERY IMPORTANT if u get 6000 kelvin and above at 100 watts u will burn and melt ur wire harness for ur lights and u will have to replace it all or have to splice and tape wires it is a pain in the ass i've had it happen more than 4 times with me till i shopped around and found 50 watt ones. now i have a buddy that installed a hid coversion kit and it is bright as hell and looks like a 9000 kelvin bulb if u go to this website they will have prices for both the bulbs and the hid kits www.andysautosport.com unless they don't sell them anymore. but if u get the 6000 and above at 100 watts make sure to check ur wires constantly cuz it is a pain to redo those. if u need anymore info let me know glad ta help.
