    Would you be willing to pay for such a kit? I'm pretty sure a legal HID kit would be over $1000.

    Yep.
    The Lights on a car really set it off.
    HID's look amazing when they are installed properly.
    Any cop with half a brain can tell straight away if the are legal or not.
    Inb4 all the I've never had a problem **** cos I got pulled up for it and got away with a warning, I guess he was having a good night.
    So if I can get legal HID'd I would not hesitate spending a few k on them.

    Lol not really,
    But I think you will find a lot of people will become interested. With a high customer base the price will be lower.
    The evo custom or whatever light place does HID packs that are legal but the have a booked out list in Darwin. Think they are around 2.5k

    Whoa, you'd be willing to few a few thousand just for headlights? Silly, but I do know what you mean by the look they give off plus visibility.

    Well here is another marketing ploy for you.
    Them rear taillights, I can't get over how bad they look compared to the hsv's. I guess that was their point but they look exactly the same size but just a different lens's.
    With a that red going on it make some colour cars look like **** when they cod turn out amazing.
    Whoever jumps on that first is going to get a lot of business.

    Btw I will probably end up purchasing the clubby. If I buy the redline I will end up spending thousands trying to get it to look like a clubby lol

    Got my HIDs in last night and they look great. Its good to finally have bright light again. I didnt even need to adjust mine as they were in the sample place as my halogens were. so dont get in peoples mirrors etc. but they are bloody bright.

    I just went with the 6000k bulbs nice and bright. No adjustment to height on the beam which was good. I just took the tyre off much easier and added hardly anymore time on.

    Hey thanks for this, was having hell doing the drivers side of my install.
    I have just finished installing the hi and lo beams with the can bus adaptor, total cost was under $400 and all fit inside the body of the head light so original dust caps back in place. With out the can bus adaptor they cut in and out.
    Lights are brilliant.
    With mine I removed the drivers side wheel gave plenty of room to work. For hi beam I just popped out the radiator filler neck, and the air box on passenger side took under an hour and here is a tip for the guys doing it at home, when you take the wheel off, take the factory jack/ tools out, flip the box and there is the torx key you need.
    Needed a
    7mm socket 3/8 drive
    10mm socket and the jack and it was done.
    Will post pics in a sec

    does anyone know what bulbs would be needed to make the foglamps and or highbeams match (or get close to) the 6000k colour output of the xennons, still using hallogens bulbs.
