Question HID Conversion Kits

Hi all, I am new to the forums and love it! Great info and alot of fun people.
Now on with the questions:
Has anyone used or currently using a HID Conversion kit?
If so what kit did you buy?
What bulbs did you buy?
I have only seen the HID's come in 9006 and not 9006XS I have asked many sellers if those will fit my Cruiser and most say they should but I don't want to spend the money on "they should" if ya know what I mean.
I know I can install them myself, no problem.
I really like the looks of them and this year I want to spruce my up my 2001 Touring Edition I call "Elvis"
Any answers will be appreciated PS I know all about the laws ect....
Thanks

Just installed my 2nd HID kit and I ordered from this company 3B Specialties

Only $140 and shipped overnight. I love them... nice n bright n colorful!!! I saw this kit on another(Scion) forum when the seller was tryin to sell his kits. The topic was 114 pages long and full of rave reviews so I decided to give it a try. It is a 9006 bulb that u will need and Im pretty sure ur cruiser is a 2001 not a 2000....

Yep your right! My Cruiser is a 2001 (I fixed it in the original post lol)
I was wondering about the bulb because if I'm not mistaken my regular low beams take 9006XS bulbs with a straight plug and high beams are 9005XS with a L shaped plug.
So how did you hook yours up?
Did you use the 9006 HID bulbs in your low beams?
Do you have any pictures of your car with the light on?
How was the install easy?
I am mechaniclly inclined so.........
I like your under body lights! I plan on doing that to mine as well this summer..
Thanks for your imput!

They show really blue when u look at them but they shine a blue/purple beam..... All hid kits that are 9006 are straight anyway just like the stock bulbs, its no curve in them....

Wow dude that looks great! What bulbs you go with 6000k or higher like the 10000k or higher?
Where did you end up securing you ballests for the lights?
I also noticed you have a blue strobe hooked in your high beam enclosure, I plan on doing that to mine as well lol. You must have removed your head lights for that, was it hard to remove your head lights?
I might as well do both of the light mods at once so I only have to remove them once. I looked at the manual to remove the lights but it looks like alot of frigin work...

Thanks alot for the info and the pics I appreciate it

I think you can use 2006 & 2005 HID bulbs..every HID dealer I managed to talk to said to use 2006 HID bulb for the low beams I never asked about the high beams.. So don't take my word for it I am not even sure if the 2008 PT has the same bulbs as mine(2001)?
I think the best way to find out is to first ask some questions from the dealer you plan on bying from

Cheers from Canada eh!

MuzicMax, thanks for the response! The problem is that each dealer tells me a diferent thing.... In the owners manual says that the low beam uses H7 and the Fog lights use H10 (9145)....

Some Ebay sellers tell me that it uses 9006xs on the low beam and the fog lights...

Does anyone here own a 2008 limited Pt??

Thanks!!!

As I said I have no idea what yours may take. Mine uses 9006xs for low and 9005xs for high. Here is a link if you really want to know.

http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProd...RG-Results.htm

Check that out it's right so no more discrepencies! Also keep in mind if your going to install a HID kit you will need different bulb 9006 as StoneWhitePT2 said previously. He put a HID in his with that bulb.

Cheers
