Need answers. Cant get them from the manufacture.

Im about to order some new HIDs to put in my headlights to match the ones I already have in my fog lights. 8000k to get rid of the yellowish bulb and make a nice bright blue to go with my Sonic Blue Focus. Anyways....

The bulbs come in 3 different classifications: Xenon/Halogen Lo-Hi, Bi-Xenon, and Single-beam Xenon.

I dont want the halogen combo, because I know it just wont look as good. My preference would be the Bi-Xenon bulb for have an HID high and low beam (if thats what "Bi-Xenon" means. But is it one bulb with 2 settings? Or 2 separate bulbs? I have the stock housings so I cant run 2 bulbs like in machs or St200's. I emailed their customer service but havent gotten any answers...so Im turning to you guys. You guys never disappoint.

Im pretty sure the single-beams would work fine, but if I can have the options for high beams at the same price Ill take it.

Thanks for the help!
Joel

Yup, rice.

I believe I ran 6000k HID's on my Volvo S40. Nice bright white light with just a hint of blue.

Also you won't be able to see as well as with 4300k or 6000k because the light output is less.

Hey if he likes it, rice be it then.

I have Bixenons in my car, the bulb is on a solenoid to do highbeam and lowbeam off the same HID bulb it just moves back and forth to change the light throw
Get this so you don't have the halogen high beam and single xenon makes you lose high beam
