I keep thinking about getting them for my Edge, but so far, I've only read about one success story, and it's because the Edge's (and 2008+ Escape's) low-beams are driven by high-side FETs, and they're pulsed, not continuous 12V. Most cheap HIDs won't light at all, or they flicker and go out. The one that did work had a "digital" ballast.

Since they're pretty strict about HID color on the road here, I'd go for the 6000K versions myself. I've seen 8000Ks, and they're visibly BLUE. On the show cars, the 12000K purple HIDs look awesome. If you have even a blue LED on a windshield washer nozzle around here, you'll get pulled over.

Have you found an H13 HID that has both low-beams and high-beams? Without seeing them, I'll bet you went with 8000K or 10000K.
