    I'm currently sporting 6k 55w in a reflector headlight (I know not the best). However I have been looking at upgrading to projectors and keeping the reflectors/halogens for mot time.

    Interesting thread, what sort of money have people spent on their HID kits ?? I am running a Genuine Philips kit 6,000K in my Alfa 166 which was reasonably priced at €139.00 i thought. If my 318is doesn't sell on monday i will then go down the HID route also. If it does sell i'll have to buy another E36 and HID that

    I paid £120 delivered for my HID's and Angel Eyes. Not sure how much they would have been separately.

    Hey

    I bought mine from MStyle BMW Feb 2011. I actually got 55W 7.5k (or 8k?) ones as the higher power "washes" out the colour so they actually have near enough same white colour as 6k (except they are so much brighter!)

    I believe they've increased the prices (only slightly) since I last got it but the guys there have been pretty helpful.

    Just before the mstyle HIDs I had installed 35W 6k from someone else and they kept flickering! If I ever stalled (not that I ever do, hee hee) then the lights would flicker and eventually fail until I disconnect battery and "reset" it. Hence, why I got them removed and went for 55W 7.5k which now work brilliantly (and match my angel eyes)

    Thanks
