Steve,

I was just informed by my dealership that our 09 SLT-2 is on their lot waiting for us to get back into town and take delivery. We got it with the factory HID headlamps. I am interested in getting your replacement D1S bulbs but I am concerned about longevity.

I had an aftermarket kit in a 95 Accord back in 2003. THis was back when aftermarket HIDs were first hitting the market. The kit was an 8000K kit and I liked the color but I saw that the light output was noticably lower than BMW Acura vehicles with similar colored headlights. Do you know what the lumens output of the factory bulbs is and will the 6000K give a nice blue tone or are they white with a slight bluish tint? The kit bulbs also BOTH blew out after only about 75 hours use. I couldn't contact the company (supposedly based out of New York) that I bought them from to get them replaced under the "warranty." If I do buy your replacement bulbs what is the warranty on them?

Hi,

Congrats!

As per your questions:

1) Our bulbs come with a one year warranty that is handled through us. We have been around since 2001 selling HID lighting products and a supporting vendor on this board for quite some time. You can be assured that we will stand behind our product should you require any after sales service and/or support.

2) I personally would not suggest going with an 8k kit as you will lose considerable light output. I would personally suggest going with the 6000k kit if you are interested in upgrading the color output of your OEM HID setup without compensating too much light output. I can also put together a D1 upgrade for you that uses German made Philips 6000k bulbs.

Steve,

Got the Acadia and my wife is satisfied with the light of the factory HIDs. Since she will be doing the majority of the wheel work in this car I'm not going to get the upgraded bulbs now. I am interested in the LED interior kit (I mentioned this in the feed in which you advertise the app specific kits) AND an H11 5K or 6K kelvin HID retro kit for the fog lights for my CR-V. Will the 5000K kit give noticeably more light than the 6000K kit? In the CR-V that is my primary concern (especially since I'm putting them in the fog lights).

With the LED kit I have a concern though. I don't see how to replace the bulbs in the interior lighting without removing the housings (the plastic covers are inset in the headliner housings). Is there an easy way to pop out the covers that I'm not seeing?

Hi,

Congrats on the new truck!

As per your questions:

1) CR-V: Light output will be similar between 6k and 5k kits. Do you already have HIDs installed in the low beams? What year is the CR-V?

2) Acadia LED Dome Lights: You will need to remove the plastic cover in order to replace the bulbs. I am actually working with an acadiaforum member that will be posting some feedback and DIY guide on installing the LEDs. Hopefully this will help you. I personally do not have an Acadia otherwise I would be out there taking some pics for you.

The CR-V has a reflector housing, not projectors. I am not comfortable putting an aftermarket HID kit in a reflector housing because the cops are pretty particular about that type of mod where I live (since it IS technically illegal to do). If the CR-V had projectors like the Halogen Acadia I wouldn't fret it at all because I had them in an Accord with TYC projectors and never got ANY grief from the 5-0.

I am trying to source some Euro or Japan market factory assemblies- which are OEM HID projectors. They are self-leveling and wheel/curve following if you wire them into the steering electrical inputs. I REALLY want that upgrade on the CR-V! In the mean time, I'll settle for HID fogs because they aren't regulated by DOT and no laws against upgrading them.

I'll likely wait on the pictures from the install on the forum member's Acadia. send me a PM with a link when he/she gets it done. I'd like to do it but not comfortable yanking out my housings and possibly screwing up the liner... the thing only has 350 miles on it and I plan on driving it 'til the wheels fall off. SO, I don't want an eye sore I CAUSED in the interior lighting if ya know what I mean. ;)
