That depends on the kit. Some kits come with a halogen high beam others use a movable element and still others do not allow the high beam.

If someone wants them,I have a new DDM HID kit for a 9007 application in 6000k.I bought them right before I traded my old truck in and never installed them.

I would sell them cheap.

i have the standard kit that does not have high beams. there is no real need for them except to flash people your highs when they do it to you. the lows put out more then enough light
