You don't buy a kit for a car technically, you buy it for your bulb type which would be 9006, I would go with a 35 watt kit, color temp is up to you

I have an issue with them though, it took them a week to process my order and a week to ship, then they sent me a 35 watt kit when I ordered a 55 watt one

Yes, I'm a little frustrated with DDM as of late. They were extremely slow in processing and shipping my order, to the point where it threatened to delay my project and cause a severe inconvenience which to me was inexcusable considering the time at which the order was placed.

The first thing I ordered is going to be the last to arrive. Two weeks turnaround for a pair of cables is inexcusable in my opinion. I ordered the exact same product from the retrofit source, they shipped it the next day, and it should be here today or tomorrow via priority mail. 3-4 days turnaround time vs. 13-14? Hmm...

Not to mention, it was $12 cheaper at The Retrofit Source. Wish I'd known ahead of time.

The product is good, but for reasons above I'm not sure I endorse DDM Tuning any longer.

The only reason I went with DDM was beacuse of the warranty, Ebay sellers never really honor theres well

but if it takes 2 weeks to send me an HID kit it might be worth buying them every year or so off Ebay and paying the same amount

Just an update, my car is coming in 5 days. I was planning on ordering up a pair of HID'* before it got here so I can start on the projects as soon as possible. I'm going to be ordering from DDM. I'm also going with the 6000K. But what I'm wondering is what wattage should I go with? I know that the higher wattage ballast tends to wash out some of the color and make it look different. But is it that bad? I'm looking to be bright, but not to the point where I'm annoying everyone. That'* why I'm not going for the 8000K. Also, what is the main difference between 5000K and 6000K? I'm also planning on getting HIDs for the fogs as well. Would I need to get the same ballast as the headlights as well? Oh and one more thing. When I turn my highbeams on, are the HIDs going to shine or halogens? I've been confused about this for some time. My cousin got HIDs and when he puts his highs on, the HIDs do it. Any help would be great. Thanks

I hate to be a P.I.T.A, but I really need to know. My Bonne is gonna be here on Friday and I want to order them A.*.A.P. Again, I'm sorry for being such a P.I.T.A. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry I missed your reply, I would go with a 35 watt they are really bright on the DDM kit, I ordered 55 watt 10,000K and they sent 35 watt balasts but the light output is better than my old 35 watt kit and very white even at 10,000K

heres what I think:
8000K will look blue when you look into the projectors but white on the ground, if you are doing projectors which I really reccomend

5000 is slightly yellow, 6000 is more white

you have a single bulb, not the dual (9007 where high and low are in one bulb), I would keep you halogen highs, and would not put HIDs in the fogs unless you get new housings with projectors

HIDs in fog light housings will be very blinding to other drivers
