    Hey guys, i know this subject had been probably beaten to death lol. I currently have 35w 8000k hids in my b5.5. I'm looking to upgrade to 55w hids. I love my 8000k color, but i was told if i got 8000k in 55w, it would be equal to 6000k in a 35w kit. So my question is what would be close in 55w...

    Do most people use a relay and direct battery connection with the HIDs? I have read many different threads regarding HID installation and it seems many people are just plugging into the factory harness and not using a connection to the battery. I have read that HIDs use less power than the...

    4300K VVME HIDs finally installed! No cutting, clipping, drilling, soldering, relay harness power cables etc... just a straight hookup and completely reversible so I can always get my halogens back in a pinch. I also managed to get the slim ballast to fit entirely within the high beam enclosure...

    I was cleaning out my garage and I came across a few leftovers from when I had my B5 (rip). All prices are OBO, if you think something is a bit high, let me know and I'll do what I can. I recognize I've been out of the VW scene for a while, so I may be a bit off, but I've tried to adjust based...

    last nite i was about to get on the parkway when i hit some even pavment, just a little but as soon as i hit me - my passenger side HID went out. I checked the wires to the bulb & ballast and they all look ok but still cant get the HID to work. i might swap the other one over just to make sure...

    This probably sounds a bit strange, but here goes, anyway. I've installed McCulloch 5000 K HIDs in my 2003 B5.5 with the projector housings. I then installed VVME 4300 K HIDs in my wife's B5 with the stock, non-projector housings. All are 35 W systems. Man, oh man what difference! Hers look...

    I can't figure out this wiring crap. :rolleyes: I basically installed an HID bulb in my motorcycle using a relay. Everything works fine, except the HID bulb comes on with the ignition, so when I fire up the bike, the bulb turns off and on momentarily and I have been told this is not good for...

    As I await the arrival of my new headlight cluster, I played a bit with my McCulloch HID kit. I was surprised to see that the ignitor/ballast assembly was rated for 9-16 VDC input. So, I pulled out my battery charger and hooked up one of the units to simply see it work. Except that it didn't...

    Alrighty, so I had a daytime running light burn out on me today and it finally prompted me to look into HIDs. Being a noob to most car modifications/etc, I've come up with a list of questions regarding HIDs and my 2003 Passat Wagon GL. 1.) Will these guys work out on my car (I already know the...

I bought them from purplezr2 over a year ago as can be viewed here Well, shortly after that I bough an FMIC and they don't go together and I don't have the patience to make them fit so I'm selling them. Also I upgraded them with xentec 3000k hids...

    I tell you. I think my car is telling me not to put these things in! Got the 2nd set of HIDs and went to install. 1st, I hit up the relay harness. OK, this is a NO GO for 2004 1.8t B5.5. Once you have one head light not plugged in and the other plugged in, both will not turn on. I really...

    Does anyone with HIDs installed have this feature activated? I'm curious as to whether it works.

    Since swapping my H7s to HIDs at 4300K, they are incredibly bright. So much so I get on coming drivers flash me thinking I've got my high beams on. When I put my H7 high beams on, I do notice the beam is a tad... like a tad wider but OMG the 4300K is uber, uber bright. So really, are high...

    So I'm seriously considering going HID, especially with the permanent group buy price, and how its pretty much the same price as 1 set of the 65w osrams. (I figure I'll put in HID lows, 65w highs, and run the Audi-Style DRL mod.) 1.) I'm concerned that they will be too bright (!!!). As in...
