    SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit

    I was wondering if anyone is using this kit? They are on sale at Cycle Gear for 50% off and I was thinking about trying them out. Just wondering about the quality and the brightness.

    Re: SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit

    Something to improve nighttime visibility is on my list, too. Anxious to hear input...

    I've got a set of 6000k HID,s which are great and with the mini transformers they easily fit into the nose cone. One things is that they are too high and I can't seem to be able to adjust them??

    Re: SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit

    Go to DDM Tuning's web site and you can spend less, get proven HID stuff, adn choose whatever color temp you want. If your being able to se at night is the #1 priority, then you want 4300K. If you like the look of a bit of blue tint to it but still value performance #1, go to 5000k (or get the 55w 5000k, as the extra power washes out the color almost back to 4300k level).

    Good luck!

    Re: SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit

    Ordered the H7s 4300K from vvme.com; pricing is around the same. Using it only on the low beam; works beautifully. Bought it on heisti's recommendation if i remember correctly.

    I didnt' say that it was blue, I said that it has a blue tint. If you see it next to 4300k you can see it. The higher the color temp, the bluer the light. the ones that look blue coming at you are typically 6500k. Purple is 10000k.

    Re: SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit

    Thanks guys, a lot of good information. I think I am going to go with the 55w/5k, because I am just doing the low beam for now.

    Re: SPEEDMETAL HID Light Kit

    Marty if you need a hand give me a holler. Layed off Friday so i will be working projects here and i could give a hand if needed. you'll want to incorporate a relay and delay to keep ther light from firing twice. You can incorporate the setup that is listed here. HIDs - Switches? We don' need no steenking switches!
    You'll also want to put a relay in and run the balast power straight off the battery through a fuse to keep it from flickering when the fans cycle in the AZ heat we see here in traffic.
