Thank you!

For 4300K temperature (assuming you want the closest thing to OEM), here is the list. You need the H11 for the GX.

lol, not that I doubt you, I am just looking for specs or details to justify the additional money. What power (watts) is the XenonDepot kit? From what I can see, they are both aftermarket HID conversion kits, no more, no less.

I can provide you with all the specifications you want. The problem is that many vendors provide their customers specifications that do not "accurately" describe the product that they are actually selling. Here is just one good example of why you don't want to go with a low grade HID kit:

Steve,

I remember seeing that video on youtube some years ago. I don't have the time to read through all the pages, but what was it about the low grade HID kit that he used that caused the problems? It's a pretty extreme example, especially since that could never happen on a GX because it uses traditional power steering.

If you can just point out the major benefits of your kit over the competition that would be great.

Here are a few:

1) EMI Filters: You will not have radio interference. If you search this forum you will find that some members experienced radio interference after installing an HID kit. The vendor (not mentioning names) suggested wrapping the ballast in tin foil.

2) UV quartz glass bulbs: Our HID bulbs use proper Philips uv-quartz glass. HID bulbs do not burn significantly hotter than halogen bulbs as they only operate on 35W vs 55W halogen. However, HID bulbs do emit more UV which can prematurely age your headlight. Lower grade HID bulbs do not use proper glass which will prematurely damage your housing.

3) AC vs DC ballasts: Many vendors use DC ballasts to power AC bulbs which will cause premature failure.

4) Low draw ballasts: Our ballasts only draw up to 6A on a cold start whereas other ballasts can draw 16-18A on a cold start

5) Legitimate warranty: Warranty is handled directly through us. We have been selling HID kits since 2001 and have been a supporting vendor on this forum alone since 2007. It's very easy to advertise a "gimmicky" lifetime warranty however following through with the warranty you offer is a completely different question. The company you specifically mention has their kits drop shipped directly from China. Warranty shipping charges are not covered if you need to send a component back to China for inspection.

6) Authorized Vendor: I'm not saying that you should buy from us just because we are a supporting vendor. I do however believe in supporting a vendor that offers quality products, good prices, and support whenever possible. I do this on the forums that I frequent on a personal basis.

Steve
