Do you mean are they any good? Or doing a survey on counts??? If you mean any good than my response is 'NO'. Atleast not the ones I got, made it almost 1 year and 1 burnt out. I am sure if I called the guy he will warranty them...

I should change my signature to HID not HID's.

I found a set from a company out of China, of course, i think shipped to the door they were around $75 for a hi/lo kit...they went on my Land Rover Discovery, they've been in service for about 2 years and I've not had any problems with them...but I think the cheap $50 or so kits on eBay are just low beams...I've been happy with the kit I've had in the Land Rover...but I'm not 100% sure how they'd do on the Teryx because they'd take a bit more abuse. I'll probably just go ahead and buy the bi-xenon kit from the guy on here that sells them...I forget the name, but I've seen several of his posts. Very helpful guy.

True... but there are some China suppliers who have the cheaper kits and there quality is not up to par (we did our homework, a years worth of testing) am happy to say after many many kits with our current supplier the quality is top notch... they know us to be a P.I.T.A in regards to quality. Yes I can offer a cheaper kit but why have the headaches... We just looked at secondary source for kits and we were not impressed with the quality and longevity of the ballast, yes it was cheaper but not worth it.

Over the past 4 years we have only have had a few ballast come back and a few set of bulbs as well... Some of those were customer at fault and we just take care of it... (broken connectors, grease on the HID bulb etc...)

Remember that the voltage these kits take are no where close to what a car or truck may have, a steady 12 volts all the time when running... We also include mounting brackets made that are vehicle specific so you can say its a true PLUG and PLAY kit.


Just our feelings...

I bought some cheap ones off Ebay over a year ago. I haven't had any problems with them.
