Introductory Offer on new, high quality HID / Xenon headlight conversion kits with Lifetime Warranty at PFYC.com

Use promo code HIDPOSITIVE from now until 6/15/11 to receive free shipping on your kit in the continental USA!

We've been searching for years among the widely varying quality kits with little to no warranty and have finally found what we think is the best HID kit on the market.

A cutting edge, super small ballast, high quality bulbs, and lifetime warranty make this the best HID kit you can buy. Yes, that includes BULBS, too!

KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
  • Cutting edge ballast technology: Fits in tight spaces, even motorcycles
  • Brighter and whiter than halogen: This 4300K color temperature exactly matches what OEMs like BMW and Mercedes use in their own HID headlights and our kits provide three times as much light as a halogen bulb
  • Built tough: Our kits can take a beating and have been tested in demanding off-road applications; systems are water resistant and all electrical components are shock proof and use OEM-style connectors for the highest reliability available
  • Easy installation: Most vehicles will be plug and play - simply plug in your car's existing harness to our HID kit, find a place to mount the ballast and igniter which are very small, and go!
  • Ultra Slim Digital Ballast: No transformers or capacitors - all solid state. Includes self-diagnostic and reset functions plus protection circuits to detect various lamp and ballast fault conditions and soft-starting to lengthen the life of your HID bulb. Measures 67mm x 74mm x 17mm.
  • LIFETIME WARRANTY: Includes ballast, igniter, and bulbs!
We offer fitments for the following bulb types right now:
  • 9004 High or Low Single Filament
  • 9004 High + Low Dual Filament
  • 9005
  • 9006
  • 9007 High or Low Single Filament

I don't think so - but I'm researching and will reply back as soon as I find out more.

Agreed, 9005 for fogs. I have 9005 for my fogs and it fits perfect.

I may have to check out HID lows from you. The ones I have in there now suck.

I haven't forgotten about this - I'm still working with the manufacturer on this (and was out yesterday).

They're telling me that 9040 is equivalent to H10....but people above said 9005 worked fine, so who knows! I'll say that if you order H10 and it won't work, our manufacturer will probably end up picking up the return tab.

I am also running the 9005 bulb but was looking to replace them with a whiter bulb .... like a color temp 5000K or 6000K. My question is that our fogs call for a max of 45w bulb and the 9005 is a 55w bulb (hasn't seemed to affect the fogs so far with the color temp 3500K). If I go to the 9005 Sylvania 9005ST SilverStar High Performance @ 55w, will they work or would the 43w H10 6000K work better and be more in spec with the ability of the fogs to take the bulb heat.

5000-6000K isn't whiter, it's more blue and purple. The whitest possible is around 4100-4300K. Higher than that turns blue and purple, and lower than that turns yellow and amber.

If you want fogs, and want a lower wattage HID kit, we can special order it in 35W for you, just let us know. I would not use a 55W 9005 bulb in your fog housing if it's specified for 45W max.

I would avoid 6000K altogether but that's just me.:cheers

Bump.

How do the hi/low HIDs work? I just did a conversion from a sealed beam to a 9007 on my dirtbike, and was thinking about doing an HID kit on it at some point down the road.

Also, how do these things handle supply voltage fluctuations? I've got the typical dim headlight at idle, but brightens up at speed.

If this is for a dirtbike, you're looking at the right kit. These are actually designed for offroad use on motorcycles, dirtbikes, ATVs, and the like. We have simply taken them to the car market without any changes. The switching works fine and is done inside the bulb itself. The supply voltage should not be an issue. The input voltage spec is posted on our page and is 9-16V so you should be fine.

I see your website says these aren't street legal? Is the 35W kit street legal? I really like that you guys put a lifetime warranty on all the parts but I also don't want to get pulled over all the time.

No, neither kit would be technically legal. Depends on the police in your area and also the aim you select for them. Many of our customers do not have any issues, but technically speaking we do have to tell you that they're not road legal.

Ok, well ive been wanting to get H.I.Ds for the 05 Goat for a while now, but i do not know what color temperature to go. Its the impulse blue car and wanted to go with a blue tint for the lights, either blue headlights w/ yellow fogs, or light blue headlights w/ deep blue fogs, or some other combination if it looks good. but the one other concern is what i can put in the stock lights without ruining the lenses. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Generally from what I've seen, the cheap kits may come with a lifetime warranty but I've heard about people waiting weeks or months for replacement parts with slow service when they need help. With us, you email us for help and we have a solution usually the same day.

As far as the technical differences between the ballasts and bulbs being used in ours versus others, I could not say.

We will only sell you either 4300K (white - same color as the OEMs use such as BMW, Mercedes, Audi) because it gives you the best actual light on the road, or 6000K as an option (slightly more blue, similar visibility but the lumens output is lower and that means less light on the road for seeing things). Other companies will sell you higher temperature kits that are blue or purple, but those do a very poor job of lighting up the road (isn't that the point?) and are dangerous, so we don't offer them.

These won't damage stock lenses because they run much cooler than halogen bulbs. They don't put off nearly as much heat as your factory bulbs do.

:cheers
