And I can tell you that i use to get those, the supplier is not that reliable(really doesn't matter to you, but still) and the ballast are prone to rust. I mean those are ok.....But not at those prices.
Thanks for answering my question. I'm signed up for this. I assume that these are basically plug and play? And I'm also assuming that the reason you showed a couple pictures with the wire strippers was to demonstrate wire size and not because you have to strip/cut any wiring?

The only issue i have with the "55 watt'' kits are as follows..... They don't seem that, much brighter(from eaby) IMHO going to a more sun light color (I.E.8000k to 4100) well net you a better preformance,
2. No ones has a comparison on the Lumen's(light output), I mean srsly the http://www.amazon.com/Mastech-Digital-4-Range-Luxmeter-LX1330B/dp/B000S19W3W/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1252945664&sr=8-1is like 100$ Prove that it is brighter.
3 They use bulbs from 35 watt kits and just drive them harder.(Not all some). The only ''55 watt kit'' that i saw was useful was the one from panasonic.
4.One more lie I found is that OEM/factory ballast were 35watts..... Yeah... So why do people go through such lengths to steal acura,Nissan,BMW ballast? I mean Nissan moved the ballast twice before they switched to an modular unit.

......Rant done

Good points.

I did have a run of the mill 35watts one on the RX7 and same one on the NSX.

When I tried out the 55watts version on the GTO I was blown away on how bright it was compared to the ones on the NSX with 6k high and 12k low beam. Hence the NSX now has 55watts ........

Whats that 6k/12k thing about? Going from 12k to 4100-5000k would be a bigger difference in brightness than 55 to 35. I take it you were trying to emulate that exotic lambo look? You know that lambo tints the projectors right :p Do you have projectors on your nsx?

Yep, I voted a couple days ago. The more I read about these the more I want them on my car. Too bad this is buried all the way down in the off-topic section. I don't see this thread getting much traffic. I would think it would be better in the exterior section. It would get a lot more views.
