500 is a good price
Are they OEM? Is this for the full kit?
If you have the 500 I would go for it!

Xenons are definately worth the cost.

I live in an area with tons of deer. I feel a lot better driving at night with the power of xenons lighting the way for me.:smile:

Get the 2001 one! Is it brighter?

I heard from others that the 2002 one is not that bright or it has fewer k... (like 6000k vs 4500k) and so it is not that white.

For USD500 I'll buy the Xenon, but are u sure its OEM or its HID philips kits?

The light on those OEM Xenon 35 Watts are amazing and if I can choose again I will grab the BI Xenon. Once you try the Xenon, Halogen is unacceptable.
