What "xenon" bulbs should I get?

Not quite ready to do full HID swap yet, but would like to have some brighter/whiter headlights. Need some help. saw a post recommending BiXenon H13 6000k? Anyone have any pics? or info on that bulb?

Any recommendations?

Thanks!

The XENON bulbs you see on eBay are fake. SilverStars are the brightest legal bulb you can get for replacement bulbs.

Ditto. I put them in mine they look nice. You can get the ultras which I think are 4500K. The fake ones on ebay look like garbage. I used to have the real things in my nissan, the ones that were $80 a bulb not 2 for 29.99, and you could tell the different when I was parked next to someone with the fakes.

I purchased my HIDs from http://www.hidxenonheadlights.com/. Got them both for my fogs and my headlights. These guys are great because they truly stand behind their product. I warrantied a bad bulb that was over a year old- no problems! sent it priority mail for free. I have been to New Jersey, Chicago and Florida with my HIDs and never had any problems (legally). Just remember, do not get just xenon bulbs. You need the kit which includes the bulbs, ballasts, heavy duty wiring and relay (for headlights). The lights take up quite a bit of energy and are hot. The need the ballasts and will burn up your stock wiring. Everything will be included in the kit. Just plug and play (but I recommend drilling the brackets for your ballasts to the walls of your engine bay instead of double sided tape). Very easy to install and look fantastic on the KKs.

@ ELT31987- Thanks for the pics. Will look into some SilverStars at least until I do a HID swap.
Later!
