Autolismo HID`s!! cheap but....?

Just wanted to ask if anyone has bought and used autolismos hid kits?

The price is right at $140 for bi-xenons


Also, would you guys recommend 4300k or 6000k? (specially if you bought from autolismo since different brands at the same output rating may have different colours)

thanks!

if u can get the 4300k, since it has the highest output a HID kit can have

otherwise go for the 6000k, each brand varies tho in terms of the color

I bought two bulbs from Thomas, it works as it should. Has 1 year warranty. Turned out my ballast was dying too so I tried contacting him again to see if I can buy ballasts off him too, but he never replied any of my emails after buying his bulbs.

it is the brightest since its the purest white.

surprising to hear that he wouldnt reply to you
makes me wonder if he would honor his warranty especially because buying off him would mean cash and prob no receipt. was thinking of buying 2 years as well (i was going to get it installed by him too)

interesting, so basically the 4300 would be a nice pure bright white light
do you guys think 6000K would be a bit too blue?

Get 4300k

I got a buddy that's selling ones with slim ballast and relay for cheap. 100 for standard like h3, h11, 9006. I'll ask him how much for bi-xenon

nice, are they new?

yeah, sounds like 4300k is like a win/win since everyone seems happy with them, kinda leaning a bit towards the 6000k though because i want a little blue, 5000k would be great
would 6000k lower light quality a lot?

my 6000k are super bright. they're hardly blue but you can tell they arent pure white.
reason i dont like aftermarket 4300k is cause they tend to fade to yellow.

interesting, thanks
would you say 6000k are even brighter than 4300k? lets say at a new state, before any fading etc

i guess i wouldn't want it TOO bright, so much attention to cops

also, if i got bi-xenons what would my drl's be like?

6000k is more white, but less output
4300k is more yellow, but better output

this post is a little confusing,
so he bought bulbs from Autolismo,
found out his ballast was dying,
tried to contact thomas to purchase a ballast,
thomas didnt reply emails

nothing to do with the warranty

the person who posted after this was wondering, how likely this Thomas character is to honouring the warranty, when he didn't reply to Shenmecar's email.


Also 6000k isn't too blue, do they still make 5000k hids? i'd probably get those.

edit: hidoutlet has $80 hids.

140 for kit bixenon, but now im going for this other kit for $110 because my daytime lights would be messed with bixenons
40 install
40 if i want to add another year warranty, so total of two years

nice, i think ill go for the 6000k, but making sure he installs it downwards more

anyone know what would happen if lets say a few years i want to go back to halogens? lots of trouble?

This is 4100k


from Acura TSX projectors with Phillips 85122+ bulbs
notice its pure white and the cut-off adds colour. This is the way it should be done.

go OEM, or don't bother. Your either blinding other drivers or throwing light everywhere.


Projectors ftw.

Hey shenmecar,
Did you send me an email regarding the faulty ballast? When did you send it? What is your email address? I reply all of my emails. Perhaps it went to your junk mail? Tell me your warranty number or email address and I will replace the ballast for you.

Thomas

The dual bulb that I told you about today is a direct plug and play so if you want to go back to halogen, just unplug them and plug back your stock bulbs.
