Default Best Xenon HID conversion kit

I searched the forum but couldn't find the converstion kit details on this forum....please help me with the following.

1. compared to 60/55 stock bulbs are the xenon hid very good?
2. can the xenon hid melt the headlight dome in baleno?
3. what is the price range of 'xenon hid conversion kit'?
4. which are the best kits around and indicative price?
5. any precautions to be taken while getting the kit fixed in baleno?

1)comparing stock bulbs to xenons is like comparing chalk and cheese
2) very doubtful....
3)12000 to 20000

I dont think it can melt a Baleno's HL assembly.
Get a good wiring kit and replace the stock kit.

Last time i went to the Skoda workshop, there was a car which had just fitted a Philips 4000k Xenon kit..and got its electricals all screwed up. Could be the electricians fault, or maybe someting wrong with the product..

20k+ is quite a big jump from halogen bulbs.

14k for high and low beam or just the low beam?

Btw, Xenons are 35watts, which is less than even standard bulbs, so they won't melt your headlamp.
