I pm'd the guy, and he said I need the H7 kit. Im probablly going to go with 5000k lighting. Any ideas? Is this all I need? Any recommendations?

Thanks all!

The H7's are used in our W8's as the high beams. HID's for main, and H3's for the fogs.

You CAN purchase HID's to use in your fog light housings, though.   I have 3000k's. Nice an yellow.

If you just want to replace your HID bulbs we use D2S.

I thought the stock HIDs were 4300k?

------------------------------------

JT, as the rest of the fellows have said, our W8s have these lights when delivered from the factory:

Low beams: D2S (HID)
City lights: W5W
High beams: H7
Fog lights: H3
