    Bought on prime for a small over 50.00 USD. H3C Bulb @ 4300K Temperature. 35W

    Came shipped in a “brief case.” Honestly don’t know what the function of this is, it’s not like I will be traveling with my HIDs regularly at my side. It was valued nonetheless, though the packaging inside was a moderately disheveled (don’t really care though, as long as everything works).

    Installation: Most difficulties in installation arose because of some modifications that had to be done for my own vehicle’s application. The kit itself seemed of excellent quality with excellent solid connections and wires. One point to mention is that one of the connections were really attached to the wire BACKWARDS, so I had to flip the connector 180 degrees for the kit to work. Thank goodness the connectors subdue attached upside down. I wrapped with excellent quality electric tape just to ensure a secure attachment. Other than that, installation was quite simple and straight forward for someone who installed an HID the first time.

    Performance: The kit emits solid, bright light with no flickering so far. Been using two weeks to date. Upon initial start up the light looks bluish (like 8000K) then whitens throughout the warm up period, which takes roughly 30-45 seconds? My only complaint is that for a 4300K the affect seems closer to a 5000K. I would like something slightly “off-white” like 4300K implies. This probably reveals some variations in different manufacturer’s affect temps ie one HID company’s 5000K may have a slightly different affect than another HID company’s 5000K.

    UPDATE: 01/25/2014
    It’s been nearly a month since I’ve had these installed, and now I’m noticing a SLIGHT affect temperature difference between the bulbs. One bulb is now closer to 4300K, while the other had stayed nearly what 5000K should look like (see above comments). I don’t know if these means that there is a “break in” period on these bulbs, or that quality control is not up to par, but will update again in another month or so to see if the colors even out. Again, it is a slight affect difference between enough for me to notice while driving and seeing the reflections on other cars bumpers.

    UPDATE: 02/13/2014 **Upgraded to 5 stars**
    I chose to contact Kensun through Amazon about the bulb affect difference (see update above). Their representative answered promptly and politely, and with no further questions other than my original message, shipped me a new pair of bulbs a day after his answer! I have had the second pair of bulbs installed now for about a week, and there is small to no affect temperature difference now. I have no basis for quantifying the bulb’s actual affect temperature, but I would say they are closer to 4800K than 4300K. I am upgrading from 4 to 5 stars because I feel that if your product is not up to par, Kensun will do all they can reasonably do to satisfy you. My customer benefit experience with them was very entrusting.

    Fantastic Kit, EASY INSTALL, Development 11, 2014

    The bulbs and ballasts are excellent quality. Installed on 2009 Chevy Malibu, no relay just HID kit. Works fantastic, not one glint. ATTENTION: avoid ballast problems down the road. USE DIELECTRIC GREASE!!! It will protect the connections from moisture and oxidization.

    Very simple to install and look fantastic! Took maybe 20 minutes to take the stock bulbs out and place the HIDs in! Very pleased!
