Anyone use this site for reverse HID? Looks good

Saw their video on youtube and clicked to the site, kit's $165 and includes HID for reverse lights ready for PnP on 07+ WK's!! If this is the real deal I'd definitely spring for a set....but do they always take so long to warm up like they do in the video???

Looks good but what about 2005 and 2006?

Re: Anyone use this site for reverse HID? Looks good

HID reverse lights are the shiiiiiit. They take a few seconds to warm up to a usable output level but it's worth it.

I "converted" my reverse light housing to 9005 so I just got a 9005 HID kit from V-Leds.

Re: Anyone use this site for reverse HID? Looks good

The video gives you a good idea of how long they take to warm up. Once they're warmed up, if you turn them off and back on, they won't take that long to brighten up again. Personally, that's too long of a warm-up time for me, but to each his own. Now if you could install a switch that'd allow you to turn them on without being in reverse... that'd be useful for offroading and those pesky tailgaters. Although, I think I'd rather have a switch for my brake lights, that way the tailgaters would think I was braking.

Ghetto how? Theyre good bulbs, 9005 adapter in heat shrink tubing and ballast. Sucks if he took lips' adapter but wiring is wiring and if lips hadn't done it, it'd be a matter of time before someone else did.
