I'm sure we all have noticed the difference, but with these bright ass HIDs, who really uses the brights? Quite a few guys have done the fogs tho, you just gotta dig thru all these god forsaken threads...

:welcome: Thanks! That's why I am using the 8000K, are a little darker blue. I keep my lights down to keep them out of most other cars rear view mirror. i also would like to keep all the lights looking the same to complement the front view with cars coming at me. I hate the different colors on the road and side of the road. With me when I look in the rear view mirror and see two colors i first think that it is cheap looking, then the two colors have me looking more in the rear view mirror more then watching where I am going.

Your factory D1R's shouldn't cause issues with other drivers, even if you were to go with a 6K or 4300K. I think the 8K top to bottom is going to look sweet. Can wit to see it.

For give me if some of you thought that I was trying to compare my HID's to anything else! I wanted to match my high / Low HID's and go darker blue to cut down the brightness that some people see when coming at you. Xenon HID Conversions, with 5 yr. Warranty. 8000K bulbs. This is how HID Mobile supplied my HID KITS! The size of the blast and the way that something is packaged Tell's me a lot about things we receive. I went several days and no one came back to me on the different company's! HID Mobil went out of their way to support me not sell me. They said look around and tell us if we can help in any way. WHEN was the Last time any of us have hear that from a supplier or dealer? I am NOT here to Bash Anyone! I came to this thread for HELP! My HID's are done and I couldn't be Happier with the out come, and wanted to share with others. I came to this Forum to ask for support with my EXT mod's to save time and money in doing them. I always thy to look at the Detail of things. People see things different, but I couldn't be happier with the way things came out. Hope this helps someone! Donald

Maybe this might help someone! I felt that the brackets that came with my HID have bolt holes top and bottom of each brackets so I used them to hold the Ballast firm. With the long wire kit I had 18in. to move the ballast to a solid place. The driver side was mounted by the battery with S/S bolts. The passenger I mounted on the fender by the lights. Both of these ballast are for the High beams HID. The Fog HID ballast I mounted underneath on the cross over frame with S/S Bolts. Here are some pic's that I have if they can Help!

My HIDs are made using Philips Patents and high quality components. They are also slim ballasts. I can actually get HID's for $33/pair, but i refuse to sell them. I think the quality is questionable and it takes a lot of time to warranty parts. Look at the terminals in your ballasts and they are probably crooked or not straight. Before I was selling them, i went to hook up a pair and the terminals were so crooked they bent when I was installing it and I thought I had a bad ballast. I bent it back and they both quit after about 9 months. The ballasts I sell have terminals that are aligned perfectly. Granted, when things are being manufactured, everything wont be perfect, but these are pretty close.

Not to start a pissing contest, but the whole "Phillips patent" thing is really oversold. My guess would your HID's are made in China, like they all are, and are a copy of the original Osram/Phillips design. Not to say that within that relm of manufacture, there are not quality differences, some are better than others, no question.

An actual Phillips kit, would be made in China as well, but would carry not only the patent number on the box, but a 14-digit security label that would varify it's authinticity. Yjr link is here. http://www.apr.lighting.philips.com/burner/Template%20B1.htm

Here is what the actual Phillips kit looks like......
in the first pic I took you can see the security tah.

Good point. The perception of quality, for any product is what drives the sale, or in the case of internet sales, it's what drives the interest. But support, and product warranty are really IMHO the bottom line.

I used the Phillips as an example, because every set of HID's on the net, uses "Phillips technology" with "digital" ballasts, componets from Germany blah blah. It's all BS. They are all basically knock offs of the original Phillips design. Now again, this is not to bash anyones produxt, or to say that therer are not GOOD HID kits out there, becuase absolutly there are. So how do you know if you arer getting a good kit or not? Most of the time you really don't. So.....this comes back to my original point. You have to go with support, and warranty, with a dash of reputation to make your choice.

You are correct, they are probably just as good, but I want real Philips, and if you look around some selling Philips are spelled Phillips, my Philips ballasts are stamped made in Germany on the back case under the sticker and on the sticker, doesn't make them better, but sure not worse. :) I have seen many kits from Japan and they looked good

HCVone, I was offered your kits. They, in fact, arent "true" philips kits, but they are considered "Philips Lightsource". They are not made by Philips, they are made by the same MFG I get my stuff from. They told me the quality was the same and it wouldn't be worth the jump in price. I never claimed my kits were Philips, but they are made using Philips Patents, legally. A company offered to put those stickers on regular lamps for me, they didnt care at all. Naturally I didn't go with that company, but unscrupulous ones are out there. I 100% agree with you that you have to consider warranty and support and hope your getting a quality kit. I'm assuming those are kits you sell? I wasnt aware there were so many HID vendors here. Can I ask what yours go for? Thanks

So how would one know, that your kit are leagally made using the Phillips patent. If they were, the patent woul dbe on the box somewhere, and how or why would anyone in China care about a US patent? I gotta say it again, it BS that any patent was used to make a Chinese HID kit. They are simply copirs of the original Phillips design.

Doesn't mean that makes it bad, it has no bearing on the quality of the product...but IMO it does say something about the sellers of the product. To tout a Phillip patent, when it is simply untrue.

Spencer, I do not sell them, they are out of cars and trucks I have owned the last 15 years that I added HID to, the reason I know these are made in Germany, is that I lived in Switzerland for 3 years and picked them up myself at the factory in Germany over several years, they were not any cheaper that is for sure. Mine not only say on the stickers made in Germany, and of course anyone can make stickers say anything they want, but they are also stamped made in Germany on the housings, and the fact that I personally purchased them in Germany in a building that the sign says Royal Philips Electronics make me think that these really were made there. I am not saying they are better than another brand, but in this case I know where they came from. :) I think some of the ballasts made in Japan are made better, I had one on a snowmobile that takes a beating and is exposed to temps to -40 and it lasted the two years I owned that sled. :)

The ones you showed and the ones in the post above are completely different. I wasnt saying that arent philips, but that the ones above it werent true philips kits. As far as the patents go, I've been scanned paperwork to show copies of the patents they have license to. I was worried about it myself at the time. The same company sells the Philips lightsource kit that is shown above that you can check out online. I Dont think philips would continue to let them sell the lightsource if they were knocking off their products. This is concrete, but its pretty good, especially considering the quality that you can see in these things in comparison to some of the other kits i've seen/sold/purchased. They are a great way to get Philips technology without having to pay all the premium for it.
In relation to your japanese ballast... Snap-on took their best set of plyers a few years back to china. they asked them to make the same quality plyers and tell them what it would cost for 100,000 or however many they would buy. They came back a better quality and only cost $4 to make. Im not sure that story is true, but it came from my snap on dealer, and i certainly believe it. I prefer to buy american, but when thats not an option, i get the best product at the best prices, and my philips patent license kits are quite the bang for your buck.

I run HID fogs as well, lost my passanger side one due to moisture in the housing....I wonder if the housing is covered under warranty.

I run nothing higher then 6000K as anything hotter (on the Kelvin scale) is useless blue light.

I'm going to get a set of HIDs for my high beams soon just for the hell of it since HIDs are so cheap now.

:highfive: I have 6000K HID's in my SRT, and went to 8000K HID's and could not believe how much easier it was to see the road ahead of the car. I all ways thought that the 8000K were to dark boy was I wrong, less glare on the road too. Took me 2 or 3 times to adjust them to other cars so they wouldn't shine in the back of others. I know that 8000K's are not for every one but I was surprised. My DRL were changed to 3 watt LED's as well. Donald

Hey Dswanger,
I agree with you. Got 8000K on my Escalade also and it does make a big difference on the road and surrounding areas. Almost turns night into day. Not to mention, with a little blue tint, you stand out in the crowd.

I all ways thought 8000K were to dark! I drive my SRT with 6000K and know I am sick about not having 8000K in the SRT. The glare is far less on the road side when I am driving down the road. I don't know how much longer before I change the 6000K out. Donald :highfive: or for me :bonkers:

No haven't touched the high beams. I don't think I'm going to mess with those right now. The Fogs are pretty bright. I had a buddy of mine complain that they were too bright while I was driving behind him & He had factory tinted rear windshield. (go figure) I may switch around the low beams and the fog light bulbs. I've pissed off a few cars on the freeway.

Do you run any special promos for Forum Members Spencer? I'd am currently running replacement bulbs in my low beams, they are called "DB" color I believe. They are the bluest ones I've seen thus far. Do you carry anything similar to match for fogs/highs?

Donald,

thanks for the link but I didn't want to wait so I ordered a mess of lights, 8 sets, through www.ddmtuning.com at $40 a set, I couldn't resist...I've bought from them before and have only had great experiences with them. I run their HIDs in my BMW and wife's Audi without any complaints as well.

everything but my snow blower has HIDs now. :bonkers:

I wanted the low HID's, I also have a pair of stock fog's that I'm willing to give to someone that needs them, Actually they are not stock they are the HID look fog light bulbs. I used them for about 2 weeks before upgrading to the HID Kit.

If anyone is in need of fog light bulbs I believe they are the 880's hid look.

high beam is 9005, fogs are 880, slim ballasts you won't need, you have plenty of room in there. I have the kits in stock, PM me if I can help you out.

Hey guys,finally bought a set of 8000k for low beam and 880 for fog lights,started with the headlight,took me 15 min and then to realize that the one on the left side didn't work,so started to switch then and still the same bulb didn't work??...maybe got a faulty bulb? is it possible?then started with the fogs,but the plug looks really hard to insert and there is 4 other wire,i pretty sure i don't need those other wire but the problem is that the HID bulb is longer than the stock bulb so it doesn't fit,came here to do some research and found that you only have to use a screwdriver and push the metal reflector in the middle BUT pushed it as much as i can but still the bulb touch the metal,is it me or there is something else to do,Ive return all that stuff and now looking for some help on where is the best place that now's Escalade and would be able to provide me with some cool 8000k low and fogs...don't no if anybody else had that problem...thanks
