^I just bought a set of these HID R33 Conversion lamps with lamps rated at 5000k (I wanted to steer away from the blue hue that the higher K-rating put out..

I am thinking of using the above 55W kit for full beam ...and am contemplating getting the 35w version for my dipped beam..
:attention:
I cant help but wonder if anyone else has used 2 kits like this ?? - Martin.

hid's take a while to heat up, you're better to go for a bi-xenon projector, otherwise you'l have a few seconds of pitch black switching between the two bulbs while they heat up (main beam turns off when flashing on r33)

bi-xenons simply remove the cut off on the existing bulb to provide fullbeam

Depends on the bulb type, some kits have a single bulb that changes position via a relay.

Would you happen to have a LINK to a set of bi-xenon projectors meant for use with an R33 ??

Is there much difference between the HID lamps in my pic (above) and said projector xenon lamps ??

Have I made a bad move by buying the above HID kit already ??

What would you say's the best route to take for 5000k low beam and 5000k High-Beam upgraded bright lights on my R33 ? - Martin.

Bi-Xenons have a little solenoid that flips a cover away to give you main beam I have a set of Bi-Xenon projectors fitted to my car I done them a few months ago now and love the look of them and the light they give off :)

I bought 2 x 2.5" motorbike kits and custom fitted them to my headlights, there should be photos near the end of my project thread or even on my Project Facebook page if you want to have wee look.

How hard was it to modify the head-lights or kit to make the Bi-Xenon lamps to fit? are they available in different Kelvin ratings ?? - Martin.

Mine flew through MOT with 4 HIDs.

Might be simple to install but bloody expensive.

Maybe that was just a lucky day then.
Expensive compared to HIDs though.
