    I think he means we will start to see the "Xtreme HD Ultra Plus" style cheap tinted bulbs in H11(B) format now. It's becoming a popular bulb size.

    Aaah, I see. Do all the H11B bulbs have the same power connector built into the socket or is that just a Hyundai thing?

    edit: Never mind, did a quick search and it seems it all H11b's.

    Correct, the B designation is for bulbs with the bayonet type terminals. The non B has a traditional plug style input.

    I should of clarified, I have not been able to find any upgrade halogen H11b bulbs in my area such as Sylvania Silverstars. Currently only Sylvania O.E. replacements for $6. I have been waiting for something plug and play for the last year.

    I would like to go HID but I am going to talk to the dealer about warranty issues. With my extended warranty I don't want to jeopardize anything with it. If HID's are cool with them then maybe I look into it.
    What I would like is to find a nice white H11B halogen that is worth switching to. I see a few out there but no solid name brands yet. At least that way, I don't mess with the warranty
    Technology is moving quickly so in a few months maybe some LED's might work best.
    Either way, just driving the car is fun and with the snow coming the roads should look white anyways.

    HID upgrades using a relay harness do absolutely nothing to your warranty because you don't alter or change anything, other than reducing the sustained load on the alternator.

    Bringing that up with the dealer will just yield problems because they'll be forced to tell you if you get aftermarket tire valve caps your warranty will be in jeopardy.

    I have an extended warranty and free service for 2 years, never mentioned a mod, and they know what I've done. Look at my mod list below.
    Any time you ask the dealer a warranty question they will be forced to recite the company line. That's a liability thing. If you do it, and they see it, and it causes no problems it becomes a silent wink and a nod.

    That said, if you get HID's and your headlights don't work it's probably a good idea to not ask the dealer to fix it under warranty.

    Okay so I dealt with pretty much the same situation about a week ago, I've only had my 2016 VT-M/T for a month. Contemplated the whole HID idea for a hot minute, but also thought about the process of installation and if or how often would I have potential issues with the HID kit, given their are great quality brands on the market. However, we can only avoid the inevitable for so long things happen.
    Yea if you go to HID headlights, there will certainly be benefits. On the flip side, the cost just for replacement hi and lo bulbs that are Halogen H11b's will run you roughly 60-70 dollars a pair so 120-150ish for both hi's and lo's
    I bit the bullet and spent the money on the Sylvania ZXE halogen bulbs, H11b's for the lows if you have projector headlights and H7's for the highs, I haven't messed around with the fog lights yet.
    Will it be an improvement, yea it is. I live in North Georgia and my commute southbound is roughly an hour and twenty mins, through the rain and fog I can see a whiter light and a brighter light. The Sylvania ZXE-Halogen bulbs are rated at a 4200k versus I believe the OEM bulbs are mmm 3-3200k.
    You can retrofit you headlights swapping out the projector with a HID one for you lows, but still you'd have to do the additional drilling,wiring, and finding ground points.

    Not taking one over the other at all, just letting you know what my view was and the route I chose.

    Not sure where you got your info but a pair of replacement HID bulbs are $40. Thats cheaper than the Silverstar Ultra halogens.
    CNLight Replacement H11 HID Bulbs (pair)

    HID's also last much longer than than just about any halogen.
    A halogen lamp's typical rated life is about 2,000 hours, which is about 2 times longer than that of standard incandescent lights. On average, they produce 10-35 lumens per watt, while an incandescent produces only 8-24. One thing to note: Halogen lights produce the most heat of almost any other light source, and much of the energy they use is given off as heat. If you choose only halogen lights to illuminate a room, you may have to compensate for this heat with air conditioning

    A xenon light's typical rated life is around 10,000 hours, lasting 5 times longer than the average halogen lamp. Because xenon gas glows when excited by electricity, it also takes less energy to achieve the same lumen output. Xenon gas also requires less heat to produce light, so you don't have to worry about such high energy bills.
    Not sure what your talking about drilling and ground points are all over the engine compartment. It took me about an hour total to install mine, that includes pulling the bumper.

    I didn't know you could get the H11b in Sylvania ZXE. Must of missed that. Have only seen Putco, PIAA and Blue Thunder?
    I found a Canadian parts store that sells Putco brand H11b halogen bulbs in various shades of white.
    Anyone try this brand?

    such as:

    - taking off the bumper
    - dremeling holes into the headlight cap (that keep the dust out I suppose)

    The results are very rewarding, but it's not a simple 10-15 min process like it was on my other cars.

    I went with Morimoto's but had some issues with them so I would acutally just go for DiodeDynamics and also pick up a pair of the same temperature fog light LED's as well (which are simple plug & play) if you care about your lights all matching
    I just purchased the Diode Dynamics HID conversion kit for my 16 VT Turbo and had them installed in less than 1 hour and there is not any drilling whatsoever. The bulb is the same as replacing a stock bulb. Just mount the ballast near the strut tower and run the included harness and relay to the battery. I got the 6000K bulbs. they don't seem to project outward as far as stock but I'll get them aimed to see if that helps. The lighting to the edges is a dramatic improvement. I have difficulty with night time vision and the stock bulbs don't for instance light up the curb area at all and the HID's help me see where I'm turning on dark residential streets. Highly recommend.Not to mention the cool factor.
