I see that there's an H11b bulb option. Any difference from the H11?

I like it! I am on the fence with the HID's for my car after hearing about the extra glare without the projector style buckets. So I want to ask if you had anyone flash their high beams at you yet? Has it been a problem? I've priced the kit through DDM and it's only 55.00, thats about what the OEM h11 bulbs cost.

its not going to be 55 if you want them to work on a 2012. if you dont get the resistors and the relay harness they will not work.

No glare, no flashing, My pictures show that my lights are more focused on the ground then the OEM lights of a PT cruiser behind a car.
