Oh, I believe they work. My silverstar ultras work decent too, but I want to try these out and see if they work for me. The color temp seems to be a huge factor for me.

But I want to buy from a reputable vendor. I wasn't really debating if these work or not, just if anyone had experience with either vendors mentioned, or possibly someone else. I've bought my share of junk online from vendors that seem legit, only to send me garbage or have to fight to get money back, etc. I just wanted to know a good place to get them.
Thanks for the opinion though. Like I said, I'll try em out and see if they are what I need. The yellowish lights tend to not work as well for me, except for the fog beam pattern I have in the Hellas I installed. But for seeing out further, I like the glow effect that the HIDs have. Especially now that I'm driving in snow. Lights up snow, ice, slush really well. But they do glare, so they are aimed down, and not as useful as they could be, but I really don't want to take apart the assembly to change the reflector pattern.. its the only good set of lights I have right now, and I can't afford to mess em up.

What HID kits and sellers would you all recommend? Ddmtuning.com seems to be rather inactive, and from what I've read their customer service has gone way down hill too.

Looking for a high quality 6000k 35w kit or something close.

I get all my HID stuff from DDM.

They're not inactive, they just don't stock certain things at their retail store. Because of this, they ship directly to you from they're manufacture in China.

I've also never had a problem with their customer service. I had a ballast go bad on me. I sent an email, and had an RMA number within 24 hours. Replacement ballast in a week.
