Yes indeed guys, I can assure that I am a very genuine operator ;-)
I am one of the two guys (both bikers) behind HID50.com 50 watt HID lighting
and am a long time HUBBer and bike traveller. We dont market the HID product. We just sell by word of mouth. Its a hobby rather than a business, and was set up to offer the best quality HID kits I could find to bikers, by bikers. Thats why all the pics on the site are of bikes ;-). I also want to make available to bikers stuff that the mass market companies dont ... like 50 watt HIDs, "military spec" componentry, and mixed bulb kits for Triumph or KTM bikes.
As mentioned before, we are not in it to make a profit but just to cover our costs and pay us for the time involved, so thats why as mentioned before, we have no interested in pushing products. If there is no such thing as a perfect H4 HID conversion, thats what I will tell you.
We also put together mixed bulb kits for KTMs and Triumphs ... which need 2 HIDs but have two different spec bulbs (a H3+H7 for the KTMs and a H7+H9 in the Triumphs).
I deliberately source "military spec" components in the kits (at considerably greater expense) which are made by Alcatel in France. So while the kits and bits are all put together in China (As is everything these days) the electronic components inside are largely French. So basically they are the most expensive kits I can get out of China. I obviously do a lot of long distance riding myself and I dont want to go anywhere with a cheap kit. There is a huge difference in quality of components inside the kits, and the sad reality is basically no distributors ever sell or supply the expensive quality kits. So again, thats something we do ... offer a quality of component that you wont get on ebay.
If any of you guys want to buy any of the full kits from us(HID50.com 50 watt HID lighting
), just mention the "HUBB discount" and you will get £20 off the web price. :-)
If you dont want to buy anything, thats fine too. Peace :-)
