Post Tony is Right!

Plug and play adapter is the selling point here!

Not only is it prefectly fit for OEM, and it also doesn't need to splice, tap, and cut any wires!

All you have to do when you buy the HID kit from Xenondepot.com, you just need Plug in!

And that's it! You are done and it is that simple!

Although other companies provide higher tempterture of color(8k, 9k), it reduces its visibility. Only look nice! not too good fro driving.

You don't really want a HID bulb with a blue filter on it because it is not a true mix of gas inside the bulb that makes the desired color temperature but is filtered to get the color the company claims it is making. The best bulbs are gas mixed to get the right temperature color you want. without using a blue film to filter the light.

Sometimes suppliers get a 4300k bulb and then put a blue filter on it to produce a 5000k color or darker.

guys

there's another plug n play HID kit which is half the price of xenondepot.com.... couple of frens got it done and they r happy with it....
the website is www.superhids.com
people r really happy with thier service and the kit itself...
plus they have more color choices to choose from.
i personally saw one of the kit installed in a frens gx. and it looks very similar to Xenondepot.
Plug n play adapter is the same as the one from XenonDepot. but the only diff is that XenonDepot uses Philips HID kit and the SuperHids uses BosH.

Default I don't think it's a Plug&Play kit!

Hey Adil,

I don't see anything that they describe about the plug-and-play.

But I did read this "Provided fool-proof positive (+) negative (-) specific connection"

Which told me that this kit has to wire to the battery, and that differs from the Xenondepot one.

But I got to say that the price is really cheap~!!

I checked out that website and there is no mention of plug and play just that they offer a H11 bulb. I am 100% sure that only Xenondepot has the H11 OEM harness adapter right now on the market. Not only that but they don't tell you what components they use like are the bulbs Phillips bulbs? are the ballasts made by Phillips? Is their customer service record proven and can you count on them to send the right products at the promised time. Remember PROXENON offered cheaper kits as well and look at the hell they gave some of the other GX owners. Go with a proven source even though it may cost 100 bucks more you will sleep better.

You have to remember Phillips components once installed will probably out last your car they have been on the market with HID systems the longest.

On the other hand you should buy the kit from SuperHIDS instead of Xenondepot and review it for us so that we can see if there is another source out there for H11 HIDS. If the kit uses Bosch components then it will be a good kit. Bosche does not make a HID bulb but usually supplies ballasts. So the bulbs must be Sylvania, Osram, or Phillips. Phillips are the most expensive.

Here is what I found about some of the car companies with OEM HID systems:

I know Phillips supplies HID bulbs to Mercedes, Audi, Lexus, BMW, Ferrari, Lambo ,Acura, Bentley.

Bosch does supply ballasts to Audi, Porsche

Other good companies like Sylvania and Osram are BMW suppliers for bulbs but use Hella and Bosch ballasts.

Some Lexus models use Denso and Doito ballasts and Osram/phillips bulbs

Infiniti uses Matsusita ballasts and bulbs

Mercedes and Jaguar uses Hella ballasts with Phillips bulbs

AdilÖ..

I went with ProXenon for $449, no tax and free shipping. It was very easy to install, with a slight modification of two plug connectors.

There was no need to disconnect or remove the battery or find a place to ground the harness nor find a place to connect the relay to the battery. Itís very much plug and play, not like what I just mentioned.

Each ballast is connected to the wiring harness on itís respective side with itís own separate OEM fuse. No need to run wires from one side to another.

All in all, I am very pleased with the installation and results.

hey Guys

Just finished talking to my freind.... The Superhid kit comes with Boshe ballast and bulbs are from Macculah... ( i don't know if i spelled it rite).
The kit installation is similar to the XenonDepot one. It does come with that adapter which goes rite into the factory harness similar to the XD.
If you have any questions you can contact Chris at www.superhids.com
Don't forget guys that the price is just $300 shipped.

Default Hey Adil...

If you can show some pictures to ensure that is a plug-and-play kit,

I would likely to get it for my another car. Pls ask your friend for pics...
