Whoa!

Want some reviews? Check out here. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w163-m- ... -kits.html

I'm thinking about getting 3 kits for the ML. Highs, lows, and fogs. Why the hell not. Make sure you confirm whether you need their error code eliminators or not. Bottom of the page.

i used to have them.
theyre very good, only downfall is that they take a bit longer than OEM ballasts to warm up..

i used to have them on my high beams as well and it wasnt that great of an idea. just to let you know.

other than that awesome product. will use them for my HID projector retro.

my friend got them, hes had one burn out in 2 weeks. But other than that, great price. Even for slim ballasts. makes me feel stupid for paying 100 for hids a while back.

35W or 55W?
What was the deal with the highs?

I think I may even buy another set for the retro on the cabby while I'm at it. Why the hell not, right?

Hey, I don't know everything. ( :gfight: Abe ) Just putting it out there. I still think I will get them no matter what, just to see and review for myself. Trying to decide 35W or 55W and temperature first.

they were 35W and it would just take like 5 or so seconds to warm up, i dont do much backroad driving so i dont have my highs on for too long, by the time they warmed up i had to turn them off because of oncoming vehicles..

You dont want to use them on your highs because they take a little time to come up to full brightness/color(10sec or longer). Also, they will wear out faster by constantly having to refire when you switch your highs on. Most cars with either have bixenon which blocks part of the beam on low and allows the full beam on hi, and/or will have a standard halogen to use as a high beam or for flashing someone.

From the website, 55W burns 40% BRIGHTER than 35W. But it also costs $10 more. Which is not bad in my opinion. I've always used 35W (in all of my cars) and now I am considering the 55W 6000K Kit to replace the 35W 6000K (which I currently have in my wife's car and bought off eBay 2 months ago for around $40 shipped). The cost of having HIDs have gone down A LOT since I first started installing them in cars over 5 years ago. For the GTI I'll possibly go with 55W H7 5000K since it'll look OEM. :thumbsup:

Here's my wife's Saturn SL2 with 35W 6000K (photo #2 is stock lighting (Sylvania Brand) vs 35W 6000K):

Thanks for reading off the specs from the site for me again. I forgot what it said. :roll: Starting to agree on the 35W deal too. Less heat and not washed out color = good; and brightness is really trivial when these are already way brighter than halogens to begin with. :thumbsup:

Was about to say that same thing. That is a big NO NO!!! There is no cuttoff in stock reflector housings and HIDs disperse differently. Please remove those, get different housings, or NEVER drive behind me. I WILL brake check her. :goodman:

Yea, already weighing whether I care about the warmup time on the highs or not. Sure, I won't be able to flash oncoming traffic or anything, or tell a truck to come over, but least I will still have my lows on while the highs warm up. Dual runners FTW!!! Yea, I don't have the bi's, I have separate slots. One projector (low) and a capped reflector (high). Didn't want the color to be off when the highs were lit though. Yea, yea, trivial BS. Hrm, all good point though.


Assholes with springs > assholes with HID in standard reflectors.

Did they do just lights though? I'm concerned that (to keep the temps the same) if I go 55W, I'll melt the tiny fog housings. I've heard stories of others, with different cars, doing that. Don't know of any on the ML, but it still concerns me. Matching say a 35W 8000K to a 55W 5000K or whatever it takes, to make them similar in color, is going to be the hard part. If it's even possible. Maybe I'll just go 35W, then buy some 55W later to play with and monitor.

if you wanna match the color the 55w normally look more washed out. so if you get 4k 35w fogs then the 6k or so 55w should look about the same.

and the 55w might also warm up faster..

I have ddm tuning lights in my high beams, low beams, and fog lights. I have 35watt 6k in my highs, 55watt 6k in my lows, and 35watt 5k in my fogs. 55watt tends to wash out the color a little bit more so get a color up from what you want so that it will look like what you want.
The 55 watt kits have 4 mosfets vs 2 in the 35watt kits.
There high low kits work great as well.
ummm 3k is really sweet for fogs.
You can ask me about any question on these and I have probably delt with it or come across it. I have 5 extra kits at home right now as we speak.

the older slim ballasts I had a few problems with and had to warranty. The newer ones are thicker but are made a lot better.

whats with the 9004 hi/lo kit? can anyone explain? should i just get the reg 9004 kit for my MK3?

Looks like they use a magnet to redirect the beam to a higher angle. No on/off like your normal dual element halogen bulb. So, once the bulb warms up, it's on and stays on, the beam just moves.

New post Re: $25 HID Kits Bulbs and all.
...and if anyone is planning on doing this in a stock reflector housing... here's how it works and why you shouldn't...

Man, some guy had a REALLY nice write-up on this, on some other forum, with pics, but I can't find it again. I'll just dig up the wikipedia on it. Not as much explanation into why you shouldn't as his had, but it at least gives you the basics on the differences.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headlamp

Reflector Parabolic

Reflector Multiple Mirrors
Image

Reflector Elliptical with Projector and Shield/Aperture/Cut-off
Note: Angle of incidence is equal and opposite to that of angle of reflection. (ie: the shield is on the bottom to create a defined cut-off at the top of the projected beam.) That's why you see a line at the top of your light, when shined on a wall.

The kits are no longer $25. That was shortly lived as Jim(The Owner) explained that Obama made the prices higher.

Also, the low high kit is done with a magnet. It just sucks it back half an inch or som so that it its a different part of the reflector. The dual kits also come with a wire harness which needs a positive and negative run. It has a small relay box and it gets the signal from headlight plug on the vehicle.

Jim(The Owner) said so himself about Obama, so yes it had something to do with it. I have talked with Jim about other things as well but this was one thing he mentioned. Why be an ass and be like they are wayyy more then 25, I was just pointing it out to people who would be looking for the $25 set. This way it cuts out any question of if thats the correct kit or not.
