I just did them in mine and LOVE them. I did the Bi-Xenon kit so I could retain my high beams. I did the 6000K bulbs, because any higher and they get a little too blue for me. Here is the info from a post I had on another site from when I put them in:

Picked up a set of Bi-Xenon 6000K HID's for my truck. Got a chance to put them in today. Very simple install. I went with Bi-Xenon to maintain my high beams (mainly for flashing if I need to). The Bi-Xenons actually have a motor in them that move the bulb up and down to maintain the ability to have high beams. Here is some really good info on Bi-Xenons:

Bi-Xenon HID Kit [Bi-Xenon]

I am very pleased with them so far and anxious to see them tonight. Here is the actual kit I put in (forgot to take an open box pic to show the contents).



Here are the harness diagrams:

Additional Harness needed for the bi-xenons for the highbeams:

Took me about an hour, but thats only because I hide all my wires and want everything perfect. I picked them up from a friend of mine that owns a local shop.

They are usually plug and play so easy to put in. The higher the kelvin number the less lumen they are and the more exotic the color. I agree with TxFireman1972 on getting the ones that retain the highbeams. As far as brand goes the cheaper they are they tend to flicker when cold and burn out sooner. The more expensive sets usually give more lumen with the same kelvin number. I am very happy with mine

can you guys get some pics of them on, that would be great, so I am assuming, with out the Bi-Xenon you don't have a high beam, I was wondering how the high beam works, since my factory bulbs have the high and low beam in one, also are they much brighter then halogen bulbs

My set has two bulbs attached to the same plug so the high and low work. Other sets have angle changing bulbs and some just dont use the highbeam.

The Bi-Xenon on carhidkit have two filaments and a motor to change the angle. That set does have highbeam action

Do you think I need the high beam, aren't theses things supposed to be bright enough?
