    Question HID's thoughts again

    The nights are drawing in and i'm thinking (again) of getting some HID's.
    I've got to go to Stockport on monday and was wondering if i can go directly to HIDS-DIRECT in Swinton, Manchester and buy my kit over the counter. Does anyone know ?

    Also whats the best kit to get ? I'm thinking 6000K - 35W.

    Agreed my 6K are white with just the slightest hint of blue and in truth identical to the ones used in the Laguna in colour.

    If I wanted them to look liker Halogen in colour I would go 4300K, if I were changing mine today? I'd go 5000K

    If that all makes sense.
