I have the 35 watt kit and it is PLENTY bright. The race kit might get you in trouble with the cops

ya, thats exactly what i was thinking, so thats why im leaning more towards just the 35 kit.

oops...same guy

lol, ya, you already gave me that link and im gonna take advantage of that deal... Im just curious out it will work out with warranty issuses with them and how good they are in customer service.

go with the 35 w kit unless your out in the boonies....also dont get any higher than 6000k.

warranty stuff is ok..seems a little slow at times. I'm still waiting on replacement bulbs for my 5k kit, but its only been 3 days so far. My lights are a little green so their replacing them under warranty. I have another kit on my M3 that are perfect and have had absolutely no problems with and are bright as hell!

unless you are looking at the bulb temperature to be 7000K or above, you aren't going to need the race kit. i have 6000K and it's still bright with the 35W kit.

Same here, have 6000K McCulloch kit and it's hella bright!

go retrofit. cleaner light, OEM fit and finish. just a little more elbow grease :thumbup:

I was thinking bout that,,, and I really wont mind doing that cause I like screwing with crap on my car, BUT, Im looking to get this kit with a warranty. I dont wanna be spending $300 plus, and have a bulb or ballast go out on me and be screwed later down the road.

I have the ProLumen 50watt 6000K kit. It is excellent. not so bright it will blind a cop to want to pull me over, but a nice white with a blue tint.

Have th 35 watt, xtech kit 5000K. It is nice and bright. Only been flashed once by a car in 8 months of having them installed. No issues at all with the install to date. I drive by 3 police stations in 10 miles of driving to and from work each day and pass around 2-3 police cars as a result. They have never given me a second look.
