philips H7 HID conversion kit??
has anyone tried the "philips hid conversion kit"? id like to only take the bumper off once on my 2010 legy..... i need to make some repairs to the bumper after hitting a raccoon, so i might as well do the hids.... in past experiences i have bought cheap kits witch have lead to flickering light or lights not turning on and even a burned head light wire . please help any information would be helpful ... im not interested in $50 ebay kits that are all the same with different sticker labels ... im comfortable with spending the money on a quality kit thanks in advance !

Try The Retrofit Source and get these. They will set you up properly! I haven't done it yet, but this is what they responded to my inquiry with.

They recommended these to me as well.

AFAIK, theres no such thing as a real "Philips Aftermarket HID" they are only OEM.

Aftermarket Philips = fake.

Google it up, it is mentioned quite often.

I'll second GTeaser's recommendation of the Morimoto kit. Ive had mine for a couple of months now and have been extremely pleased with the quality and light output.

i ordered the "H7: Morimoto Elite HID System" and the 2.5" Black Series clear lenses .... thanks for the sugestion GTEASER.... i dont know how i feel about baking my headlights but .. **** it! whats the worst that can happen right lol

got any ideas on what sealant to use to put the head light back together?? i know that the original stuff should be enough , but just incase....

im thinking while the lenses are off ill paint some of that discusting chrome!!! its gonna be a nerve wracking day!!!

(have to search the Austrlia Philip's Site).

Genuine Philips HID Kits. They can be found on eBay etc.
