Angry Extremely disappointed with new HID kit

So i pick up a nice HID conversion kit off ebay, this kit exactly:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/XENON...Q5fAccessories

And go ahead and wire them up. Well no highbeams... So I was like "wtf?" yah I'm new at owning a 2nd gen. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a nice HID kit with high and low beams? If they even exist.

Try DDMTUNING.com They got really good prices on them and lifetime warranty.

The kit you bought are just a low beam only kit, when ordering from DDM select a hi/lo kit.

retro-solutions on ebay....he sells to all the tuner guys. i got a set for my Isuzu rodeo conversion on my pickup. you want what is called BI-Xenon bulbs....should run you 150-200 for a GOOD set. Retro set i have is over a year old and worked great. sold the truck but have to put the kit in another Isuzu i have. want to get a set for my 2010 Taco soon but one issue i did have is that if you dont tighten the snot out of the ballists, you get static in the radio until the bulbs warm up completely (about 15 seconds). The 6000k bulbs are alittle blue hue to them but 5000k are pretty much pure white. the 6000k are nice though, cut thru the rain and snow and light up the road nicely. Just aim the headlights down though, they do blind oncoming drivers if not done right.

try looking over in the lighting section. There's guys that do all kinds of stuff in there. I haven't looked into it that much yet, but I know there are a few places they have linked in there that should be easy to find.

like whatthepho? said, ddmtuning.com just got a set a few weeks ago from them and love it. you have to select the h4 bulbs with the high/low feature. $60 including shipping! they have a lifetime warranty on everything; ballasts, bulbs, harnes, can't beat it.

OP, ^ That's the thread I read a while back. If I wasn't so scared of messing with my lights I'd do what yosh2000 did.

My mod express bi-xenon kit is pretty good since they have a nice shield. Also HID 3000k Fogs really help in the rain and bad weather. I have 4 sets of HID's on my truck. all 35w's.

I've been using the bi-xenon kit from vvme.com for about a year, no issues and they are a hi/lo dual beam kit. Activating the high beam triggers a relay that moves the bulb to a position so the high beam is active.

I use the same kit on my motorcycle as well. Our Nissan Rogue has 4 headlights so you have to go with single-beam bulbs with that configuration.

DDM 55w 600k headlights, 35w 600k fogs, converting headlights to TRS MINI DS2, Not too happy with the DDM tuning kit because they blind so many people even though i have mine aimed down pretty far.
