    It's just the luck of the draw too. You could pay like 200 for a HID kit and it could fail in a week, bt then someone else could get the same kit and would last no problem for years. Kinda like finding a missus really! LOL.

    I think the lower the K Number the whiter the light! i went for 6000 and have sailed through 2 MOTs since no probs. Equally i dont have people flashing me, although i like the bluey purple shine of the higher K sets im not sure id like the attention from ol Bill.
    Angel eyes are seperate and id highly recommend CCFL. Visible in daylight and a clean install.( i have original lamps with both ccfl angel and 6000k hid kits, both of ebay, both still going after 2 years)

    Just bought a set of angel eyes from tradepryce through ebay and they were pants, I've binned them, so steer clear of them, but my HIDs also came from ebay and I'm well happy with them!

    Pics will be on my projects page tonight.
