DDM HID Kit Slim Ballast (35W or 55W)

Anyone purchase this kit? If so, please provide your comments. Also it says 35W or 55W but when making the selections on the website it only has the option for 35W?

I have a 6000K 35 watt slim kit on my quad. It has been on for about 3 years and I have never had a problem. Honestly 55 watt is too bright IMO. 35 watt is already brighter than the stock halogen.

I have a friend that purchased a DDM kit. I'll try and get him to comment on your thread. I have had good luck with the eBay kits...ballast and bulbs seam to work well, I've only ever had issues w/the harness and getting a good ground. good luck.

If you get a hi/low kit then that is all you need. The accessory harness is built into the hi/low kit. Our trucks don't notify us when we had a blown bulb so no need for the error eliminator.

I had the DDM 55w in my STi and I loved them, given they were in a projector housing. Since the tacoma's do not have projectors 35 might be better for other drivers.

A retro fit is the only way IMO = no glare.

I'm not sure if you could get a H1 Hi/Low HID kit. it would probably have to be a single beam bulb.

Soo the ebay lights will provide better light than stock but not as good as the DDM HID's?
