Been thinking about HID lights and looking at kits on ebay like this one,
150197223470 . The price on this actually seems too low to be true, even
with the $50 postage within the US but I have followed a thread on the
crossfire forum where quite a few users have bought the kit and they seem
happy. The Crossfire uses the H7 bulb which probably isn=92t relevant to LC
(not mine anyway that a H4) but the cost doesn't seem to vary?

don't know if non members will be able to see it.
Anyone ever come across / used a kit this cheap?
Just looking at things for next years Christmas list!

Hi Malcolm
Bought and fitted an HID kit from ebay some time ago. It was £99 + £19
p&p. I don't remember what company it was only that it was Chinese. It
arrived direct by courier from a factory in China 36 hours from time of
ordering. It was a superb quality kit with every thing needed and took
an hour to fit with no problems. I ordered white colour (the brightest)
H4 lamps with the mechanical dip. They are very bright on dip which
saves me having to get out to see if the headlights are on! My truck is
a Colorado with quite large headlights so the performance on main beam
is not so good because the light is very scattered. the 80 with small
headlights may not hav so much of a problem. This may account for why
cars fitted with these as standard appear to have spotlight type lenses
for separate main beams. Another problem when driving is that the
reflection from roadside signs is so bright it hurts your eyes. Overall
i'm pleased with result especially considering the lamps are only
30Watts each.

Oh the guys wait, wait, I just see in some US magazine that LED's
lights are now sold. I have to ask my 'ricain colleague for him
magazine again than I will tell you all. The reportage say that you
need only tiny wires to power them LED's and they are as power as
Xenon !!

With no heat, what do you do with snow gathering on the headlamps?
Fit some heating? Like on mirrors or rear windows? (Maybe use a candle
together w the led ;-))
But yes, LED headlamps sounds good when they come down in price and with a
satisfactory light output and pattern.
