    technically they are illegal unless you have headlight washers and self leveling lights. but people rarely get pulled up on them. they won't melt your standards either. 4300k, 6000k, 8000k refers to the colour of the lights 4300 are pure white going higher will add more of a blue tint to the light and likely more attention from the police. if you are going to fit them look at the 35w h7r kit with either 4300k or 6000k

    I'm not sure about the heat produced from HIDs but most kits are 35w which is less power than the standard halogen bulbs.

    cool any pics?
    are they bright?
    does that mean you have 2 boxes behind each headlight?

    what kits have you bought ?

    You have a ballest box behind each light to power them.
    Check out oz in the for sale section. I bought the 6000k ones of him and they are brilliant. Very cheap of him to. There's pics in there also of mine and a few others.
