Default best HID kit to go with for the f4i

just looking in to some HIDS for my f4i and i bought a kit a while back for my girls car and they were nothing but problems ballast burnt out wice and the would tend to flicker on and off randomly... so i was wondering which kind to go with and if i should use a relay harness with them or not...

ddmtuning is good too! Try not to get anything higher than 6000k, because even though the color is nice, visibility decreases. Best to stick with 4500k

DDMtuning seams to have real good prices and I have heard good things. Been using Hella Technologies and out of the original 6 sets I bought, Im on the last one. Ordering 3 new sets from ddm tomorrow. 6000k is the best all around colour in my opinion. Sexy as hell but usable.

+1 for DDMtuning. Though I have Phillips 5500k bulbs in mines. Going on 14 months.

I ordered some for my integra Type R from xenondepot in canada a few years back. All phillips components. There 4300k. I was told they're they give the best visibility at that temperature.

Will be looking for something similar for the F4i when I get one.

ive got the Xentek brand 6000k i found on ebay and theyve been in my civic for a year now no problems. only set me back about $80. i later switched over to dual filiment bulbs for an extra $20 so it would pass inspection. the 6000k rule is a good rule tho. i had 12000k on my truck and could see a thing.
