The Xenon kit I got (which is of great quality) only cost me $35 (shipped) and was a very quick/easy install; I remain impressed with how well made it is.
Verbiage from the lowest priced HIR listing that I found, from CA:
One pair HIR AUTOMOTIVE BULB Single LOW BEAM
HIR (Halogen Infrared Reflective Light Source) Headlamps.
50% more bright than traditional halogen bulb.
Professional manufacturer of auto lamps, provide top quality lamps for cars.
* Pair of headlight HIR
* Up to 50% more light on the road
* A 10 to 20 meter longer beam for better road/sign reflection
* High brightness and long life
* High quality and low price.
Bulb Size: Any single beam bulb.
H1, H3, H7, H11, 9005, 9006.
This is new technology in automotive lighting industry. Satisfactory guaranteed.
In my way of thinking, this is throw-away filament bulbs for about the same cost as an entire kit (bulbs, ballasts, etc.) and the Xenon tubes can be replaced for about $20/pair...so I find them $-for-$ more attractive as it is more light / less power needed / lower replacement cost for the consumables.
But my question remains unanswered here->
I seriously would like for someone who has used the drop-in Xenons in our non-projector type headlight housings to tell me about the brightness and lighting pattern of low-beams on the roads vs. 'normal' 9006 halogens please ?
