It's just a bulb called HID because it matches the same Kelvin temperature as true HID lights. But the most important part is the bulb's lumens. That HID bulb doesn't come close to the 3200 lumens of true HID lights. An HID kit can cost as cheap as $75.00 which also last longer than a halogen bulb. Cost savings on a true HID kit is actually better than a expensive (example PIAA bulb, you didn't state which brand you purchased) high end bulb.

regular high intensity car bulbs filaments dont last with the vibration that our bikes give, my silverstar went out real fast, I went to a motorcycle shop and got the hyper white bulb from PIAA they work killer and handle the vibration, plus I ride with the high beam on during the day, a buddy said its like a welders arc flash, and at nite the low beam, its almost like a high beam, but no one flashes me and if they do great they really saw me:bigthumbsup:

If it was just a bulb, it is not an HID light/kit. It is just a marketing ploy for people to think it is an HID. As stated above I am sure it is because of the color being shined. Either way, if you like it is all that matters.
