you get with the GM products. The GM ones are lower wattage.

I feel like they reserve the HID for cadillac, GMC Acadia Denalli, and a few Buicks, the only Chevy i have seen with HID is a Volt.

anyone have an incite on this?
Just you wait! All cars will have them new in the future!

I have them on my 08 Nox, my 00 Dually, and even my 72 Blazer.

Going to look at a Dually replacement tomorrow, if I buy it then I
will be ordering 2 sets for it. (She's old school GMC w/ the 4 Eyes)

Why should starting a thread hurt? Does she browse the forum?

Cheapest, and best upgrade (brighter then fake Chinese Kits) was to upgrade to H9's vs the H11's. In terms of Lumens, which is what matters, not color range...I think it was 2200'ish Lumens. Factory was 1300'ish.

Looks good, mine cost me less than $70 to my door
w/ a Lifetime warranty. When I looked at all of the
options at the parts store it was going 2 cost me
$40-$50 (Tax Included) so I just went to HID's

I decided against this, after reading countless threads about heat issues with the H9 in projector set ups. I ended up going with H11 Phillips replacements in low beams and H11 Silverstar XT for my low beams they did make quite a bit of a difference however the projector set up is very nice!
