Where did you get the HID kit from? Will SMC be selling these as "housing only" or with a quality kit to include ballasts?
SMC is currently working on some different things. One of which would be to potentially offer a set w/ and w/o an HID kit.

I don't know...BUT...you could be the pioneer and let us know!

Is SMC going to be selling these for more or less than one can get them from direct from China?
That is the goal, yes.
