now onto a search for halogens.
Lesson: DO NOT BUY THE CHEAP HID upgrades off ebay. they blow. (this was my second set, thats my eveidence)
[This is exactly why I and others suggested to another poster that he NOT buy EBay kits....this is a great example of what can happen.]
Sorry to hear of your problem ptrfair, if you want a cheap alternative check out the Toshiba HIR bulbs which work in our factory lenses and provide up to 40% more light than halogens. They just don't have the 'cool' colors but they light up the road nicely for about $30 for the pair.
