I read a few discussions on the HIDs and what people prefer.

Has anyone purchased the ebay cheapy HIDs?

you can get them for like 60-70 bucks..

Just wanted to get a idea of how crappy they are.. or if they are worth it?

Thanks

I bought a HID set from Smart4Cars from Ebay. Someone else on this site had a good experience with a set from this seller, so I decided to buy. So far, I'm happy with the set. I've had them about 6 months and no problems. Got the 4300k and they light up the road good.

Yea i went with smart4cars also like some other members suggested. Well two weeks after the install a ballast went bad. I was so pissed didnt feel like contacting the ppl in china. I pulled it all out and went back to stoke. The 8000 were cool but wasnt worth 100 bucks for 2 weeks.

Prolly need to get a little better quality than that. those kits......just how long is the question. the ballasts are sometimes pure junk, and thats the most expensive part.
on the contrary, have had mine close to 3 years now and bought my cheapie HIDs from what is now known as smart4cars on eBay. they've worked flawlessly the entire time i've had them and still are bright and yield the same amount of lumens and color temp as the day i bought them. buy the cheapie HIDs and ignore these naysayers. i paid 150 bucks for mine close to 3 years ago and now they sell for 69 bucks. that's a steal!!!!

I got the same ones as Hooli. Had them for 6 months now and zero problems. I figure if they last 3 years Im good. Same price as a set of JDM PIAA HID looking bulbs but a 1000% the performance. Besides for the price of the "top shelf" sets that go for about $300 I could buy three sets of these and be good for a minimum of 6 years. I wont even have my truck that long. Dont even get me started about those $1000 retrofits. I can understand if you're a DIY guy cuz half the challenge is making something like that work, but to pay someone else a grand for headlights? better off putting that kinda money into a suspension upgrade.

rant over
