I just finished installing my Xenon HID Kit.
I got 7,500K Crystal White.
Image
These things a fuck off bright, its pretty weird driving around, its like daylight. Mine are pretty blue in colour, I would hate to see how blue the 8,500K are.
In the pics the Astra has the 6,500K Crystal Purple kit installed.
I would prefer that colour, seems a bit brighter.
Ohh well if I ever have to replace the globes I will get 6,500K.

Theres a big difference in the way they light up the ground/road on the comparison pics - as you pointed out in another thread. :wink:

I got the 6,500K globes today, I am going to put these in to see how they go.
The 7,500K seem a bit too blue for my liking, but then again they are brighter, so dunno??
Not too sure of the retail price for these, their still trying to work out how warranty works and replacement parts.
Don't quote me but they should be around $600, but I rekon would be cheaper if we get a group buy going.

The split photo does not give a true indication on how bright these are.
Because they are much brighter, the camera used a slower shutter speed, look at the house in the background thats out of the headlight range, its much darker in the Xenon Installed photos.
This one is a better one http://www.mys15t.com/xenon/photos/photo_12.html

What's the dealer's name and contact number?
If they have a web site that would be great so I can check now and then so I know when they are out on the market :)

Let us know how the 6500K compares with 7500K one :)

What colour range/spectrum are the factory Xenon HID lights? Hmmm, I should take a pic later and compare to lights on this thread.

I just installed the 6,500K and am about to go for a drive and see how they are. I will update this page http://www.mys15t.com/gallery/view_albu ... Name=xenon when I get back later tonight.

JT - we should organise a xenon cruise 8) really, I think we should, it would be a good idea, even if we just meet up for 5 minutes.

Maybe KK next Wed.

p.s. re: factory JDM xenon, will ask Earle, he will know for sure.


Edit - Updated page.
