I did send you a PM...
Here is what I have answered to another AO member...and I decided to share it with all, since the thread is "on" again. It is regarding the HID kit from xenondepot:
1)I want to tell me about the quality of the kit(i think it has Philips parts?)
Yep it comes with Philips ballast which is enclosed in additional plastic box for more protection...The bulbs are as well Philips...even that you wont find Philips anywhere written on then. That is because it is a custom made H7 bulb, so that they needed to replace the original parts. The whole kit is made in Germany...I did order my kit trough a friend of mine in Toronto (where xenondepot are located) thinking that the make the kits there....But nope they make them in Germany and the ship them from there. I can see that from what I have read on the net before and after ordering the kit from xenondepot, they are probably one of the best companies for aftermarket HID kits.
2)You had to change any part of the lights before installing the kit or is it plug-and play?
Nope...the only thing you need to do is to drill a small hole on the back plastic cover of the headlights...where the cables for the xenon bulb will past trough...and there as a special rubber thing in the kit to isolate that hole. Other then that no further modifications are required.
You have to be careful placing the bulb...Use a small mirror; it will help you a lot. The strings that are holding the bulb in place my get a little on your nervous if you never replaced a bulb before. The trick is to push them towards the headlight and then to the side...because what is holding them are two small hooks. (I hope you understand what I mean)...then locate the HID bulb carefully....Be careful with the metallic thing that is inside the headlamp...cause the bulb is a little longer then the halogen one and it will almost touch it...if you are not careful you might dislocate the metallic thing...if such thing happens use screw drive or something small to relocate it. You will notice that the housing of the HID bulb is made of plastic...so attaching the strings that are holding the bulb in place might be tricky...watch out for the small hooks that I mentioned earlier...remember the way the strings should go...otherwise you will die trying. USE the mirror again. That is probably the hardest part of the installation. It least in my car JTD in which you can hardly enter your hand close to the back of the headlamp near the battery side....fuse box...air intakes and whatever else....IT is not hard you just need to be patient.
Now that the bulbs are in place you need to place the ballast....well look here…
(USE dotHid “ .HID” if you type the address yourself in the browser otherwise you wont see the folder)
Look at the second two pictures…look where I mounted the ballast, how did I attached it and where I connected the negative grounding.
You will see that I used the pig tails (I don’t know what you call that plastic thing that is used to attach stuff but it is as well provided in the kit)
3) Does the 4300k become yellowish after warmed up?(the main reason i want to buy the 6000k kit)
Well from blue it goes to WHITE 4300K as they heat up not yellow…is the bulbs get older, they will turn more and more bluish…until they go near violet when it is time to replace them (that is 7-8years after buying the car)….many people think that when Xenon bulbs become older they become yellowish, BUT that is incorrect…have a look at Philips web site…color match bulbs.
I personally prefer the 4300K more light on the road…20%more light…with time you will get the 6000K temp. it is true that 6000K look nicer, but it is up to you.
4)Does it has to become any change at headlights so the xenon not to blind the other people??
NO…but after you install the HID kit…you should adjust your lights…If you go to a service center and they level them using the special thing…tell them to put them just a little lower then normal…very little.
And if you have more people on board use the manual leveling near the steering wheel to adjust your lights. Xenon is very powerful…never look directly into at close ranges.
Also after starting the bulbs they take about 20sec to heat up…very cool thing…
Important: after switching off the lights, give them a minute to cool down until turning them on again…or they might fail to start. So be careful using the follow me home option.
Good luck….if you have more questions…ask
