    Go to DDMTuning.com and order a kit. Your bulb size is 9003/HB2.

    ^^ I was wondering, is there really a big difference between the 35w and 55w, with same K setting?

    The 35w are very brite and borderline blinding for on comming traffic, I have not been flashed yet! I used the 55w for my Hella 500ff and they are brite ass as well. I would stick with the 35w for the headlights, 4500-5k will be the brightest light, any higher than 6k and you start to lose brightness.

    ^^ I was planning to only put HID lights on Hella 700FF's, not on the headlights. I could turn on the HIDs when it's needed. We got crappy car lighting laws here, but having 2 HID Hella's on a light bar or behind the grille would be pure awesomeness. ;)

    Then hella yes! Put the 55w in the Hella lights, much better than the crappy stock lights.

    If you get the kit from DDM tuning do you need to get error eliminator,HID harness and adaptor cables?

    I was about to purchase the 55 watt kit because it was only a few dollars more. Definitely do not need the extra attention and do not want to blind peeps. Just need more light :D
