If you're looking at buying HID's, then put out the extra money and by the real thing trust me. You're better off putting the extra money out and receiving a good quality product that will last you for the lifetime of your vehicle. You buy the cheap kits, and you can do major damage to your vehicle if something blows... like your whole wiring harness... and that is not easy and cheap to fix/replace either. And technically, you're bulbs shouldn't burn hotter as normal/decent HID's kits should be running at a max of 35W, not 55W like your standard hologen bulbs.
I just bought a 8000K Philips Dual Stage HID kit with 8000K HID Foglights off of a buddy of mine for close to $250. I haven't installed it yet, but I'll post pics when I get them installed.
Hope this helps you out a bit...:icon_smile:
