One of my Ballasts died on me and I need to buy a replacement. So who makes the best one and where is the best place to get them?

Phillips! They are the largest OEM HID manufacturer in the world.

But be prepared to spend big $$$ on em. I bought quite a few of the cheapy HID kits off ebay and they all work great. No problems.

Contact Ivan (Propr'one) for all your HID lighting needs... I've got three sets of his hids in my car, and have had NO issues whatsoever....

So far my Xtec (Hella) ones have been the longest lasting, over 4 years/160,000km

PM sent too I have a spare for cheap, don't think I'll ever need it.

Contact Ivan, (Prop'r'one)

I've been using his HID kits for many many years, and no issues whatsoever!

I'm extremely happy with K-light, and Prop'r'one's excellent service and prices!

Highly recommended!

He's also a Max Sponser, so there are bonus's in there for you as a buyer!

IMO, the most prevalent OEM ballast in the whole world would be the best ballast... I think that is Hella by a landslide.

afaik, from my numbers, the most widespread ballasts are bosch, not hella.


Thanks for all the input guys,

and yes, i carry all sorts of HID's, most of my customers dont drive bmw's (suckers, i know:P)
