I had osrams and they made it exactly 3 months (almost to the day).....was sucky. Chinese HID kits (well they're all chinese but i mean the cheap ebay ones) tend to die or malfunction VERY fast.....I got mine from ddmtuning.com, they are US based and seem to have good products. In any event, their ballasts seem very rugged.

could be my car, but i did some research and it seems a fair amount of people have actually had the same 3 month issue as me with the silvania bulbs. now are HIDS a direct swap?

i dont know why everyone thinks this.

just because HID's LOOK brighter does not mean they have more light output. i can easily make a halogen setup put out more light and give better visibility than a pnp hid kit.

Explain because I'm interested. Currently googling it.

What would be the benefit of HID's if this is possible then? Just longer life?
