HID install cost?

Im planning on getting a HID kit installed in my 2006 Honda civic, the cost that the people told me i'd have to pay was $40 for an install i personally dont know whether that price is high or reasonable.

thanks

Just do it yourself, it's the most basic DIY job you can possible do.

What car is this for? I can probably draw you a diagram to show you how easy it is to install. Save that $40.

Just letting you know, hid in reflector housings will look like this



lots of glare. Yes it's brighter, but it's going to blind everyone in front of you.

I just want to say that the light adjust badly, as i see it lighting in the test room there should be a clear cut line for lights, when your eyes above the line it can' t blind your eyes when you are infront of the light.
