    Hey i just picked up some Hella US ellipsoids for my e30 318is. what bulbs should i get? a little new to the ellipsoid/headlight scene…do i get like a 4300/5000k bulbs? or are those only for HID lights? different ones for the high and low beams?

    thanks!

    us ellipsoids = 9006

    euro ellipsoids = h1

    the temps. are for hids only, if you dont go hids simply get good haligen bulbs like osram silverstars. should you choose hids take a look at the specials we have on this forum and our site.

    you can buy halogen bulbs at any local parts store, hids will put out 3-4 times more light and at these prices it would be a no brainer if you eant to see at night.

    yeah that kit for 55 bucks looks pretty sweet. so if i bought that, those would be for the low beams? cuz the Hid/Xenon D2S Kit only comes with two bulbs and boxes? what would i do for the high beams? just normal halogens?
