    I was looking online for HID xenon lights for my car because it was like a $300 option or somethign crazy and my firend told me that I can get them for within $50 at uobd2.com. Kinda confusing. Does anyone know what's the difference and which ones I should get? Thanks.

    I have heard that bi-xenons means you can use dipped as well as main beam at the same time. I.e. When you engage main beam, the dipped beam xenon becomes brighter and a halogen "main beam" bulb lights up to.

    what i know is that bi xenons have motorized shield on main beam. when high beams selected, the shield moves away and simply let whole beam of light out. halogen high beams are there for "light horn" that if im correct. just xenons are normal xenons for main beam and with halogen based high beams.
