New HID's

Just ordered a set of DDM HID fog lights in 55w 3000k. Hope they are as yellow and bright as I think they're gonna be. Once I get them in and am satisfied I'm gonna get the heads probably in 6000k or maybe 8000k. Don't want too blue.

They are going to be ludicrously bright, and a very rich yellow. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Congrats! DDM has the color chart on their website, so they'll look just as they do on there. I have the 6k in my fogs and headlights- and love them!

Yeah I saw the color chart but they never look the same in person. Anyone have pics of the 3000k fogs and 6000-8000k heads on the truck.

Got my DDM fogs in the mail today and already have them in. Is there anywhere on them that shows wattage? Probably just daytime but they don't seem as bright as expected. We'll see tonight

I thought the same thing when I first installed mine. They seem to be brighter after allowing them to "break in" a little. Wait until you get a chance to use them at night. It looks like daylight in front of the truck. Definitely a big difference from halogens.

Maybe someone on here can help. Got my HID heads in yesterday and something is wrong. The shrouds are angled out on both sides. They shine light everywhere but its the only way they fit. What to do now?
