no that price is with HID's already fully installed. after that you enjoy the new Light that you have. if you want you can get your own HID kit and the price will be cheaper.
The price is supposed to go up its still on introductory prices, so take advantage while you can.

If you are interested you can try the install yourself, its not very hard with the Morimoto's. i sell everything you need for $1300.

I know how to install a H.I.D kit but not the Morimoto's. What is the price installed without the HID kit? Or is it compulsory that everything is installed as a package.

although their may be reflectors than can use hid it stills has some glare that may be tolerable when driving towards it.........

^That's not true.

When I had HID in my halogen lamp it was a dual beam. If you have H4 lights, most likely you'd buy the H4 kit, which usually is HID/Halogen or HID with an actuator. The glare from mine was tolerable and anytime someone flashed me, I'd switch to halogen.

The halogen in that was pointless though. Acted more like a park light than anything else.
Wayyyyy too dim.

yea i remember i had one of those HID/Halogen bulbs hi beams was really like parklights.
As syntax said some of them are tolerable but alot of them give of alot of blinding glare.

I have not had people flash me so I am of the opinion that mine is tolerable. When it's on high beam :D , that's another story. No need for the high beam anyway really. Same H4 bulb that DJ Q was referring too.

oh i forget to mention dem fog light men what you all think of dem

i had the acurator type high beam hid once didnt really made a difference to me nah but blinded the hell out of plp on high beam

you guys what ive also come to notice recently is that plp dont even bother to flash or even buss high beam for those hid kit users it seems that they think it jus pointless and useless to do it knowing they will jus have to endure eye pain and blindness until they pass the hid kit user.....

HIDs would show different in different models of vehicles, not all vehicles would give the same light pattern with stock non-projector headlights...

and eye pain? lol... don't stare into the light.

I've noticed this. Some cars you get more output than others, the same colour temperature looks richer or not as coloured.
All depends on the shape of the headlight and inner reflectors etc.
