    I’mdefinitely interested in upgrading my lights to HID low beams, LED hi beams and DRL’s as well. I’d like to get everything at one place, and there’s quite a few companies selling them. I though Headlight Revolution would have been a good place to start, only to find they don’t return phone calls, chat line is off line and no emails returned. Looking to do this right the first time, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Xeon depot, expensive but high quality. Plus i think they are the only brand with a dimming hi beam to match our DRL.

    I had no issue with Headlight Revolution. They got back to my email fairly quickly. I never did call. Said they were swamped still from Christmas. As far as DRL dimming I’m not sure if I’m seeing it wrong but when I turn my DRL’s on they are super Bright. They look full power but when I turn on my high beams they are noticeably brighter.
    I don’t ever use DRL’s so I’m not fussed either way.

    I got mine from Xenon Depot as well and they have been fantastic so far, the stock lights are crap compared to these. I've dealt with them a couple of times both over the phone and by email and they have been very helpful. My only complaint with them is they are on the east coast of Canada so it took a few days to get the parts, I wish they had a west coast fulfilment center. The retrofit source is another good place to look although I do not know what they have for the DRL so that might not work. Happy hunting, post up with whatever you go with.

    Maybe it’s just me but I’ve tried Xenon Depot and can’t get anybody to answer the phone! Tried 3 times today, just get put on hold with music for half hour.

    Here is what I'm running. Make sure that no matter what you get, aim your headlights properly! Don't blind other drivers with glare.

    Ok thought I’d give Xenon Depot one more chance....same thing.....Indefinite hold so they are 100% off my list. If they are that bad to purchase something I can’t imagine what you’d have to go through for warranty etc.
