Anyone have any experience with this Company?

I was considering the Xtec 6500k Kit for $350 but man!.. with CQ's prices.. Even the 10000k conversion kit is very affordable..

10000k has to be approaching blacklight color and intensity. You won't be able to see a damn thing with that. Why waste your time/money?

Buy a reputable kit from a reputable seller, like our forum sponsors. They'll take care of you and point you in the right direction, with a lifetime warranty as a bonus

Never heard of this company. Again, you get what you pay for. 10000k is horrible. If you decided to go extreme, beware of getting pull over...

Okay so I confess I don't know alot about HID and assumed the higher the number the better on the Spectrum there. So whats recommended then for the best visibility performance? 8000k or stick with 6500K?

Thanks

By The way.. The Company was linked per a request from users on another Forum I visit. Apparently the guy installed this kit on his car and posted a thread as to the success of the install and his satisfaction with the kit.

Factory HIDs are typically 4300K. If you are going to go with XTEC, the 4500K kit will give you a pure white color at 3400 lumens (35K watt version)... I think stock halogens are around 1300 lumens. I have the XTEC 6000K which is white with a slight violet/blue hue, rated at 3200 lumens, so good visibility and looks
