well here's my take, can care less about what others say

1) yes by THEORY 4100k gives out more light. but what about in REALITY? i don't see much difference. the road is just as light up, period. with 7500k the output on the road is stupid, now that i can tell. i have been in COUNTLESS occasion where i drive up side by side with another car (name it, bimmer, audi, lexus, acura, etc...) look at the front, most of the time my side is brighter than their sides.

2) ricer? you gotta be kidding me. 6000k gives out a bit more blue / purple hue, the light that you see from bimmer and audi. coz' it's still vey bright just like 4100k, anyone with hid experience and/or knowledge WILL be able to tell from far away or close by that it's hid, NOT ricer halogen blue superwhite. if you put in 7500k, 8000k, or 10000k, yes, you see blue, plain blue, and coz' it's dim, it's ugly imho. but with 6000k, no. both my cars have 6000k (my acura has 6000k headlight and fogs, my gs4 has 6000k headlight), and every single time people see my light, they say "hey those lights are awesome, those are the xenon light people talk about right?" and no, they are not the riced up civic drivers.

3) for 100 bucks, why get something overly aftermarket? umm..... if by that statement, why get aftermarket hid kit when your housing isn't ready for hid? and without autoleveling people KNOW it's not stock hid. and if you talk about FACTS, you get 4100k hid kit from autolamps-online.com, you pay what, 499? and how much did i pay (and some of you guys) for the 6000k? 450 last time i heard. so that's 50 bucks LESS from what i can see. i don't want to say anyone is charging way too much publicly, coz' i really haven't tried them out at all before. i can only vouch for what i have, and i am sticking to it. i know i got quality stuff for that price, and i tell people that.

when it comes to lighting, just like other mods, i think it's very subjective. people like me i hate yellow, so i changed out all the interior bulbs the second day i got the car. some people can care less about that. imo i think 4100k hid is good, but not that kind i want. 6000k is the beauty to me and i love it. i can safely say no matter what car i own next, even if it has stock hid, i will change it to 6000k.

Default Discount Cycle

Hi guys,
I just received the HID Kit from Jason (discountcylcle), and you guys were right he is excellent guy and service. Can't wait to install them and will post pics later.

Oh one more thing, I'm planning to install them myself but I'd rather professionally install them, do you think high-end stereo shop would install them? How much?

Thanks again for referring Jason.

and if you talk about FACTS, you get 4100k hid kit from autolamps-online.com, you pay what, 499? and how much did i pay (and some of you guys) for the 6000k? 450 last time i heard. so that's 50 bucks LESS from what i can see.

Actually, the 4100K is 500....6000K is 579. So you paid around $150 less....

And I agree with you about light output....especially when you are traveling on white cement. One thing I noticed as well is that my light output covers more lanes across compared to OEM and that it looks really white when I'm alongside OEM HID. I dunno where people get the idea that 6000K is ricey. To me ricey are those 8000K+ kits that throw down PURPLE light on the pavement...it just doesn't look natural at all. The only downside I've experienced so far is that the 6000K is not so bright on freshly paved dark black pavement....still, it's HID so it's gonna be a lot brighter than any halogen. So basically if you want max brightness and don't care at all about color , pick the 4100K. 6000K is a good compromise between performance and looks and I'm happy with my purchase. My .2.

skpark70....

I also bought a kit from Jason. I think you can install yourself. It looks pretty simple. Car stereo shops may be able to install it....but I would go with someone who has some experience installing HID kits. I plan to install my kit myself. I will post pics later.
