one other question. every time you put your car in gear you have to pass through reverse, have you had someone change the gears for you to see if the hids come on real quick while you change from park to drive? thanks!

def interested in doing this mod as well
Good question i wondered about as well? Also are these things in danger of melkting any of the plastic? Id think they get much hotter than the other bubls do they not? I may be wrong here thoguh

When putting HIDs in headlights I always run a relay and planned to for this as well but other guys said it wasn't needed. So far so good. I THINK the lights only come on after the gear selector sits in R (longer than just passing through it), like the backup camera. I can check for sure in a day or so.

I know halogen headlights get hotter than HIDs but I don't know how hot the factory backup bulbs get. They do get hot though so the housings are meant to handle at least some heat. I've had the HID backup lights on for a few minutes at a time before and nothing deformed. Everything is holding up great.

I was wrong, they do briefly turn on when going from P to D.

Re: V-LEDs premium digital 5000K HID kit as reverse lights

so they do briefly turn on, i wonder how bad that is for the ballast/bulbs to turn on and off like that all the time, how long have you had them in for?

Well one thing I noticed in the item description was: "Tested over 10,000 times, 3 times per second this ballast will fire every time."

That plus a 2 year warranty is what made me go with this setup.

I've had them in for about a month.
