I have always planned on updating my HID bulbs to 6000k temperature, but the price held me back for a while. I didn't want to pay roughly $160 for a slight change. One day while browsing ebay, Isaw the HID bulbs for cheap. Talked to my friend, and he told me they are China made but works fine. I slapped down a whopping $25 for a pair shipped. <p>Three days later, the package came in the mail. I just finished putting them on and took a few pictures. For $25, I think it's a great deal even if one them burn out in a year. I still have my OEM.<p>Here are some comparison pictures.<p>Factory HID with and without flash photography:<br><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_SA78CUs9OOk/Sdq-0GwK2UI/AAAAAAAAD9g/p7PyItU1guU/s800/IMG_1329.JPG" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_SA78CUs9OOk/Sdq-02bdEPI/AAAAAAAAD9o/_M90HbJbw18/s800/IMG_1330.JPG" BORDER="0"><p>Factory on the passenger side and 6000k on the driver side:<br><IMG SRC="http://lh3.ggpht.com/_SA78CUs9OOk/Sdq-17HpxxI/AAAAAAAAD9w/V-ZR2dONwEg/s800/IMG_1331.JPG" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_SA78CUs9OOk/Sdq-2hTNBRI/AAAAAAAAD94/ststTfRMp7E/s800/IMG_1336.JPG" BORDER="0"><p>Both 6000k:<br><IMG SRC="http://lh6.ggpht.com/_SA78CUs9OOk/Sdq-3siRETI/AAAAAAAAD-A/Bf_QUA6XwF8/s800/IMG_1338.JPG" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_SA78CUs9OOk/Sdq-4b7x5tI/AAAAAAAAD-I/JavfRExr9ZI/s800/IMG_1339.JPG" BORDER="0"><p><BR><BR>
