It's funny you ask about these, as I was just contemplating last night on buying them or not. I searched the other forum, and read a very long sticky on HIDs, and decided that I would opt out on these bulbs. I can't link or anything to it, but it is sticked in the electronics page.

If everyone's thinking about it and this bulb is really a catch, maybe this is a good one. Why not try it? It's not that expensive. Many are using HID now. I hope I can make up my mind in using this or some pontiac grand prix headlight. Any suggestions?

I have tried many kinds of bulbs in the hallogen range. I now sport HID lamps for the GTO and will never go back because they achieve the look and performance I always wanted.
Rather than spending 80 dollars on nice Hallogen lamps, for another 60, you can have the best out there which will visually distinguish your car day and night.

I used xenith xenon lamps and ballists.

i have some custom headlights on mine now.. i love the blue color and whatnot but i have had one problem... they seem to only both work properly when i have my headlights set to on.. when its set to off and the daylight running lights kick on it only illuminates one headlight, they always turn on when i switch it though.. ocassionally with a flicker here and there... other than that they are great for seeing at night... and show off that much more of the car. wish i knew exact brand i have in there but it was done before i bought the car.

yes they are cheap and the slight color you do get from them fades very quick like within minutes of them running. the longer theyre on the more yellow they become

Hids

Go to Gremlyn Garage, the website they have listed there is for DDH..contact them, get you a new kit for a 5000K Bulb.... Just installed mine last night, can't wait to take it out tonight......Check yours to see if the DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT breaker is still installed, its located on the right hand side under the hood. When you take the cover of, make sure you turn in over to properly read where the relay is located: Should be at the top left corner in the direction of the firewall:
