    Xenon HID headlight bulbs any good?

    Found these on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/9006-...Q5fAccessories

    seeing as how the stock headlights on my 92 sl2 are complete garbage, i wondered if it might be worth spending a couple bucks on these. any opinions?

    yeah, all you do is:

    wire from stock headlight harness ---->hid ballast, hid ballast ----> bulb which goes into headlight housing.

    I love mine. I put them in projector headlights so there's no glare and they don't blind anyone. I've had mine for about a month now and no ones flashed their lights at me. Just be sure and aim them correctly.
