Are HID's worth it?
 
i got a quote to have HID put into my low beams and Fog lights i believe it was $349 a pair. is it worth the dough... or should i just go with the PIAA light bulb swaps.

A quote? Why can't you put them in? I recommend 4300k or 5000k. Max 6000k. Nothing more than that in halogen housings.

You have to learn yourself or you will never be confident enough. They are so easy!

Buy the 4300k Kit from XenonDepot. They are one of our vendors in the Vendor Section of the Forum.

Buy the kit and buy the Relays as well. We are here to help if you have questions! Trust me!

totally worth it...dollar for dollar the best mod I have done. Here are my review and install threads...if you have scissors, a wrench, a drill or screwdriver and some electrical tape and zip ties, you can do this mod.

Dont pay anyone to do it, there is no wiring involved. Just plugging in harnesses

Best mod ever I have 8000k and I love them, Low and fog. There is a small blue tint to them which I love!

Ya they are worth it. I have 5000k in my lows and fogs and love them. As for the install I was the same way as you and was nervous to install them because I've never done anything like that but as stated above its very very simple. The hardest part for me was finding a good location to mount the ballast. other than that its just plugging things together. Good luck with everything

If you switched to 5000k or 6000k you would love them even more

I got some for $49 from amazon and added a 4700uF capacitor (from positive wire to the the ground wire....this before the ballast) to remove some flicker issue and they are working solid. I love the 6000k look. Very elegant.
