The best on the market and you gonna pay for them theretrofitsource.com

I have hidextra.com in my mazda and they are very nice but the TRS kit is so much better.

I would love to get a TRS kit later on when I have the money to burn.

Like I said you have to pay for the best. I can't complain about the hidextra kit. I like mine.

I don't want to type everything again I just posted up in this thread here if you want to see pics and stuff.

I think unless you do a retrofit you should save the $100.00 and put it towards gas and food.

I just installed mach HID's....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Brights are like bringing your own sun with you and placing it on the front of your car and low beams are fantastic as well. Cutoff is spectacular.

He's saying it actually its always best to have projector housings for HIDs. Its illegal in most states and it causes the bright light to scatter everywhere and can blind on coming drivers. Projectors you can aim the beam where you want it and it has a cut off to not blind on coming drivers.

Yes a lot of people run them anyways cause they really don't care. Not to say you don't or call you out I'm just saying.

I have factory projectors in my mazda that's why I use them.

It's illegal everywhere because of federal laws.

And it's very unsafe, and I out deserve to have your headlights broken if you do it. Don't be that guy...nobody likes that guy.

Yeah i know projectors are better, but theres so many people running blue, green and sometimes pink hids in this city, im not too worried about running bright whites without projectors. And i could always add some washers to lift the top of the light to point the light down
