Angry Dammmm. I Think DDM Sent The Wrong Stuff

so i just got my hella 500ff's mounted yesterday and have been waiting anxiously for my hid's to come in, i ordered a 6000K H3 55W kit. today i got home and they had arrived.

i tore open the packaging and found this.

everything seems fine



is this a h3 bulb? it seems like its correct


you can see where the stickers were peeled off


it reads 12v 35W.


i cant see why the ballast would say 35W unless it is in fact a 35W. i hope im wrong. it was a friggin pain in the ass to get these here to say the least. just because of the shitty service i will no do business with them again, now i gotta go through the hassle of a return/refund on top of the fact that im moving in a couple weeks. fuckin great.

That sucks. I had the same thing happen ordering HIDs from them, unfortunately it was my bad as I must not have clicked the 55w option on the pull-down on their site.

Why do people go for the Apexcone kits? $10 more and you have lifetime warranty and slim ballasts...

Oops my bad. I thought these were going in his headlights, he said he had mounted the hellas already. In any case, that sucks.

update: they sent me the right stuff, but after trouble shooting the crap out of the bulbs, I found out that the ballasts are busted. I called DDM and left a message, I hope they respond fast (I doubt it though)
