    I want to convert my 95 F355 to HID headlights. Where is the best place to get the kit? For those of you who have done the conversion, how much has the lighting improved?

    I'm interested too...

    My355 I did a google search on intense graffix and I didn't come up with his info.

    Is this the correct spelling?

    Do you have pics of the set-up?

    check these guys out, they have a very slick bi-xenon setup, and appear to do really good retrofits into just about any type of housing

  10. Since HID kits are banned in the usa. Only ebay is left for cheap asian kits with 7000-12000k kelvin temps. Its best to get OEM equipment Phillips 4100-4300k capsules and Hella ballasts. You can find rebased 9006 or what not phillips d2s capsules. But stay away from cheap kits.

    Some good sellers on ebay are henrylampa for OEM stuff. You may also wanna checkout www.hidplanet.com they habe forums with knowledgible people.

    We did our HID kit for the high beam in Hong Kong for only HKD$3k ! Also made a switch for it ... really nice !
    I think it looks better with the lower lights on instead of the flip up one.

    Ebay you can find good kits, the higher the bulb wattage or something like that 12000k compared to 8000k the more purple the light color.........just find a kit that watches your bulbs, be it a 9006, or h4....ysou can even find kits for your fog lights..........word of advice before you order check the persons rating

    Hi I did my 348 conversion from the regular H1 bulbs to the Hella 6500kelvin HID. Absolutely amazing!!! Easy to do need to scrape of a piece of the holder and fit the bulbs, I installed the ballasts under the headlamp area itself. Full job took approx. 3 hrs. Works great.
