What do you mean mate?

 

You can fit 2 HID kits one high and one low beam kit and have both HID high and low beam.

they give a better light than normal globes and i drive to adelaide from renmark (250kms) around every month for trade school and i thought it would be good to get some hid high beams to get better light and to spot the kangaroos :)

I'm not sure why you would want to switch your hi beams to HID. The HID kits that I have seen all take time to 'warm up' to their correct light output - a feature that you can cope with for your low beams, but you want your hi beams to be instant on. Have you thought about getting some +55 globes for your hi beams instead?

I have an S15 with HID high beams. They work brilliantly. I live in a country area and use them all the time, they were well worth the price. I like to be able to see as much as possible when I'm driving, low beam HID's do not compare to high beam HID's, they might to normal bulb high beams. Also you'll find that the charge up time isn't really that much of a pain since your low beams are still on anyway.

 

The kits I have are Kaixen kits, which are a Korean brand (most people associate Korean products with Chinese quality, but they are actually more on par with Japan in terms of electronics). There's a guy on NS.com that was selling them that I purchased off, if you find one of his threads you'll find a review that I did on them also.
