Hmm..nope, not yet.<P>The two pictures in the Gallery section do not have it either. I'll take some picture of it soon.<P>The one on the driver side is mounted near where the original battery sits...which you will not be able to do the same.<P>The other one is at this tight squeeze btwn the ECU box and windshield fluid area on the side of the panel. Hmm..kinda hard to describe....a picture will say a thousand words. <BR>

No, it's not the HID kit I got wasn't from HID4LESS. I have posted about my kind under the New V70 section or somewhere else.<BR>But not, those guys are too expensive. I got mine from this other source...you would probably have to search back the HISTORY.<P>It's a 5500K kit. Didn't want r1cer-blue lights on my car or make a bimmer or audi outta my car, so 5500K fits my taste better.<P>Slightly under $400.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by fhdt5r:<BR><B>Hey Kai,<BR>I am thinking about getting the stage 1 from hids4less, is this the kit you got?

Again attention Kai!<BR>Posted a few pics of the mini dyno meet of the Dutch 850 club.<P><A HREF="http://homepage.mac.com/jdijkstra/PhotoAlbum1.html" TARGET=_blank>Sorry, no C70</A><P>Most standard 850 reached their spec within a few HP.<BR>Tuned ones ranged from 250 up to 292(V70R) HP with sports cat DP.<BR>850T5, 18T, DP, no cat and short IC plumbing did 308 HP and ~284 lb-ft<BR>850T5 with same setup but original 15G did 293 HP with almost the same torque.<BR>standard 850T5 (225HP) with an original Volvo MS chip only did ~265 HP with 339 lb-ft of torque!!<BR>My S60 had the ME7.x blues and only managed 277 HP with the new 19T but with 331 lb-ft of torque, not bad for a beta chip. Up to 4000 rpm it's 100% now but above that it needs some additional work.<P>Sorry, these are crank HP with measured losses between 12 and 15% for MT's and 19% for AT.<BR><p>[This message has been edited by Johann (edited 06-10-2002).]

Good going~! Yeah..5500K has a very good white shine to it. I like it a lot more than those blue ones.<P>I'll post some pics soon. I didn't use any bracket for this, though....<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by mike_c70:<BR><B>Hey Kai,<BR>I just checked my HID box yesterday, and it actually said 5500K output, eventhough they advertised it as a 6000K kit.
