I haven't upgraded, but what I understand is that the HID's require heavier wiring harnesses and a ballast system......they are essentially like an welding system since they generate a lot of heat to get the gasses to burn in the bulb .....I put Sylvania ultras in my 4 headlights and am very happy....what is the cost of an after market HID kit?

Actually...the HID kit comes with everything you need to make the upgrade. The power to the ballast comes from the OEM bulb plug. I was able to do my install in about 20 mins. The hardest part was figuring where to stash the ballasts. I pulled the headlight housing out and used the double sided tape they provided and stuck them on the inside of each fender. So far, so good!!!
I only paid $32 (free shipping) for my HID kit on eBay. I know what the Sylvania Ultras cost per pair and you'll probably be replacing those before I replace an HID bulb. Also, the output from the HID's is much brighter than the Ultras (I've had those before myself). I'm so glad I finally did it, I'm also glad I waited because when i first wanted to do it, the HID kits were $150 and upwards. What I may do is get a pair of the Ultras for my high beams though.

Leak coming from under oil filter body housing. also leak coming from water pump housing and oil filter body.. gasket intake man gaskets o rings etc.
