are you wanting HIDs or "the look of HID"?

if you want "the look" they have halogen conversion kits at autozone(the kind where you change the bulb) for about 50 bucks, use them with the silverstars(bout another 50) and you'll get the "look"...

if you do this, let me know how they work, as i have been debating for some time now

i'm not 100% sure what i have.. all i know is that they are hella brand, and they have big "H4" lettering right in the center. i was too busy putting them in to see if the bulbs were replacable separate from the housing. i can only assume so though...

theres some fairly inexpensive generic HIDs on the market now, inexpensive being relative to what they were.

Slip, yes your bulbs are separate. The H4 conversions are a new lens that takes H4 bulbs, you can run any H4 bulb you want with those lenses now. The easiest and most econimcal way to go if you want better headlights on a mk2.

Hella lights are part of the Bosch corp. Super good optics, one of the better quality lights you can buy. Make sure to get the E-codes if you want the best lighting. They are not DOT legal, in case you need state inspections. Never had anybody question them on the road.

I have Hella E-code H4s (thanks to Malloy's suggestion) and I'm happy with 'em. Nice and bright ... very white light, excellent coverage in high and low beam light.

Very simple install, just like a sealed beam -- but has a removable H4 bulb is all, and no they aren't technically street legal but I doubt any cops are going to bother me about them.

Definitely a smart upgrade.

For my car I went to advanced autoparts and got the apc clear housing conversions and the high power upgrade harness (also apc). Then I ordered a set of xenon H4 bulbs to finish it off. The light is a very bright white with a hint of blue in it. The whole setup is so much brighter than the stock stuff.

Yup...Mike's right, that's priced "each"

You might want to take a peek at this site too. http://www.susquehanna.com/susq/hella/headlamp.htm Malloy told me about it a while back, but I had already purchased my Hella lamps from Classic Garage.

Parker: Go here www.rallylights.com

They kick ass. I recommend getting Hella ECodes not the cheapo no names. :lol:


These guys do kick much ass, Because of the very little jumps in prices you will be convinced to get VERY bright lights like myself.
