the only green hids you can get are from ebay and honestly they are crap! just get some nice 6ks or something.

No Green HID's lol.. I have seen them before and they suck for light output . Headlights is one of the things where its better to be safe then drive around with a green light that is worst then stock.

6000k are real nice to have, had them since December and have saved from truckin into Bambi a few times... between 4000k-5000k is I believe pure white.. A lot of cars that come stock with HID's have that. My dads Caddy has them and they make everything clear.

If you feel adventurous, try picking up a set of the smoked projector headlights from ebay, bake them open, install a green LED ring or LEDs into the housing and seal it back up. This would give you green lighting when you want it, plus add a set of HIDs and you've got the best of both worlds.

Just wondering why you're opting for the color green?

Cause green is a cool color, and lately I've been putting alloott of green in my truck. Might as well go all out! haha plus there needs to be some more green in the front.

Because green is awesome :smileup: I have the RGB halos in mine that I run green to match my paint job.

I have used AAC for all my halos. I've installed 5 different sets now, and the only set I ever had to replace from LEDs burning out was a set from Flashtech that I was trying when AAC's were on backorder for an expected 12months. My biggest tip is to use silicone to adhere them to whatever surface, not their supplied 3M tape or epoxy; the silicone allows some movement/shock and stays flexible at low temps.
