    Xenon only has low beam and bi-xenon has both low and high beam in one projector.

    Bhai when u flash the high beam lights up, so when u flash in daytime the cars normal high beam lights up and the projectors high beam will also light up, but if u have chinese D2S then it will not be as bright as say a philips or morimoto, but it will still be bright enough. But during night driving there is no such issue as the bulb is already heated up as its switched on and when u flash the high beam comes ON and the projector's shield drops and u get fully illuminated high beam

    HIDs give one bright flash at first and then they glow fully. and once they are fully glown, you can flash anytime. i used normal philips HID h4 35w 6000k bulbs in my r15 before i changed them to a projector setup. i also used H1 HIDs for the high beams in my linea before. you can see the lighting images in my ownership review http://www.teamfiat.co.in/linea-1-3-mjd/2654-32000-kms-love-my-linea-2.html

    as phew told above there are also HIDs that glow soon. like in bmw x1 etc

    Thanks.
    What will be the total budget for this? Will it be available online by any chance?

    Thank you Sir. So, they also ship it to India? Have you got any kits from them? It would be good to know about the reliability of the store :).

    I have my own importer for all this, they are the most trustworthy stores around, and yes they do ship to india, but shipping and other charges cost a bomb.
