On the fence for HIDs

I want to swap out my headlights as well as my Hella 500s to HID, but I read and hear the hids have issues? Can someone who has had them for awhile chim in? Pros/Cons?

Honestly HIDs are pretty reliable as long as you mount your ballast in a safe spot and have a strong ground. Also use a real connector when splicing wires together, dont just twist wires together and put tape over them.

I thought the DDMs were plug and plays? What needs to be spliced?

Nice!!! Youll be happy!!! Youll never want to drive a car with out HID's once you get them IMO!!!!! The dim yellow stock light will never look the same again once you get HID's, trust me I was running silverstars in a projection headlight and only thought those were bright untill I got some from DDM!!!!
