    Hi all,

    Is victoryhid still the place for HID bulbs?

    The site appears to just redirect to other websites (headlightexperts.com etc.).

    I just searched it here and came up with threads from 2017 as the most recent to mention them.

    2012 CCT, Wonderful in white

    If you can swing it, get the J.W. Speaker Adaptive 2 headlight as a direct replacement. It greatly outperforms the factory HID unit on my 2012 CCT. I’m glad I made the switch. I kept the oem factory HID unit I removed from my 2012 CCT. If that’s something you’re interested in let me know.

    I'll second the JW Speakers Adaptive LED HL

    Several aftermarket HID options these days. You won't likely get the warranty that Victoryhid.com offered. But they are bright.

    I called the VictoryHID guy out online about the HID stuff that I believed he was peddling as the exact same products carried by DDM Tuning. The photos of "his" products were clearly the same ones on the DDM site just marked up. I put the DDM HID in over 7 years ago after tearing up my hands replacing bulbs on the Vision & they're still going strong.
    You can still get a 50w 5000K H4 dual bulb kit with slim ballasts for $75 like the one I installed-worth every penny not to have to deal with a Vision headlight for a long time.

    Thanks for this!

    I'm pretty sure what I have already are halogens . I'll give them a call to see what exactly I need to buy to convert to HIDs.

    That is one of the knock offs, super cheap just remember you get what you pay for.

    Yep, you seldom get what you pay for, and you never get more.

    The JW is plug and play.

    Remove the old light, swap the mounting bracket then install and adjust if needed.
