Which xenon kit to buy?

Ok guys, which brand of xenon kit do you prefer or recommend. Which kits have the longest life, best product, warranty, etc. I'd like the vendors to offer their suggestions as well.

Here are some of the brands I found:

Xtec
Apexcone
xenoflo
Vision bulbs xenon kit (don't know brand)

i had xtecs on my car for two years and had to replace the bulb and ballast two times each

I recently switched over to Prolumen (got them through www.jlevisw.com) and haven't had a probelm with them yet.

From what I have heard, Xtec used to make a fantastic product but has been ousted by Prolumen...

Contact Jlevisw and they can hook u up

incredible offer on the hid kit

OP, keep in mind that you will need P46s if you are doing a halogen -> xenon conversion. That wil run you another 500 or so.

That's right, if you are putting these in your headlights, I highly recommend you go with the Projector46 kits. These are full headlight replacements that feature projector based xenons with our Predator Series angel eyes and ProLumen HID kits preinstalled and built in. They are also backed by our Lifetime warranty, are 100% plug and play and include everything you need for the complete install.

If these are going in your fogs, you can just purchase the ProLumen HID kit.
