i have a used set of 35 watt HID LO Presti lights, ballast, and lens They are the rectangular ones for wing tips. 600 for the pair. They are bright and burn way less electricity than standard halogen bulbs.

I have the Lopresti tips and want brighter bulbs. I’m not sure what I have there now, but I believe they were stock base installed by the previous owner.

If these are the upgrade from mine I may be interested.

BTW, why are you removing them?

$600 is a great deal for anyone thinking about upgrading to HID for everything. Just note that these are the rectangular reflectors and not the standard PAR 36 round lamps.

I also have the Lopresti Zip tips and they originally came with the Whelen Halogen reflector w/ 27 watt bulb. I changed these over to the 35 watt HID using the Lopresti HID module and Xevision HID power supply. That was close to 10 years ago and now Xevision offers their own HID module and much brighter HID power supplies. I use the Xevision 55 watt in the nose of the Arrow and it's fantastic.
