Default Recommendations on good HID's

My current HID's of two years have finally become beat and stopped working.

I'm obviously going to need a new set, and I was thinking something along the lines of McCulloch 6000K's. Anyone know of any other reputible brands out there that I can trust?

They will need to be H1 due to the fact that I have jdm headlights.

I found the McCulloch's here, does anyone know if this site is ok to order from?

Thanks in advance!

I wanted to do the tsx retrofit, but I kinda have other things I need to buy.

XenonDepot.com has philips hid's, they are like $420 shipped. So McColluch is no good?

Well the issue is you'll be blinding everyone even though you have projectors, since the cutoff shield flares on the wrong side.

Id say just get a cheap eBay kit for now (All eBay kits are the same, find the cheapest one), then get a retro when you can.

Why not just stick halogen bulbs in there and save for a proper retrofit using OEM components?

You're looking at spending $420 on a kit, when it's not that much more for a retrofit.

^^^ agreed, if your looking at spending over $400 on a kit, just save a couple more weeks and do it properly.
