    I am a teenager, so I am away looking to get the bigest bang for my bux with stuff on my truck since funds are limited.

    I have heard both great things and horrible things about DDM tuning, I like their price but don't want to buy something cheaply made. I would like to hear from everyone who has DDM tuning HID's about your experience's and do you think it was money well spent for someone who drives at night a lot ?


    also I know 2nd gens have 9003/HB2/H4 bulbs. Is it the same for 1st gens? if not what are the high/low bulbs, thanks

    I have dealt with them for 3 vehicles now over the course of about 2 yrs. Have dealt with their customer service a couples times and I have had no problems with them. Just recently I had a bulb go bad on me and they replaced it. But that is just me, I know i have read some people having problems with them. I would recommend them.

    First day I had mine I drove through a puddle (not on purpose) and compltely engulfed my fog light housing in water.

    Water was in the fog light around the light!!!!

    I got the water out let them dry and they fired right up!

    I'll be getting my headlights from them soon!

    Thanks for the input guys, now what Color? I know a lot of people have 6000K but I am thinking 4500K because I want maximum visibility.

    ohh and 55 Watt vs 35 Watt?

    ummm yeah
    35 watt is more than enough....55w is hotter on the lenses and there is really minimal difference in lighting output

    I have a 35 watt 6000K kit on my quad. When you look into it the color os a tad too blue for me but the light is white. When I got HID on the truck I'm going with 5000K. Also no need for 55 watt bulbs.

    If you look in my photo album(I can't get the code from my phone at the moment) you can see 55 watts vs 35 watts on my Offroad lights.

    Makes me wanna go with 55 watts. But is there any worry of them melting the headlights? cause the heat output has got to be greater.

    Id say get it from DDM. I really liked what I ordered from them. Now I'm having problems with one of the components of the kit and their customer service has been very good and very helpful. No problems at all with the warranty either.

    bought'em cuz all my frends had'em. installed perfect. fog lamp bulbs could use some redesigning. didnt really fit flush into the housing. after about a month, one of my HL balast went out!!! bad deal! but i sent'em back in n got a new one fast, no more than 2 weeks. just waiting to see if the other one is gonna fail too. but overall good product for the price.

    i know this place is pretty slow on shipping but i ordered on the 14 and they shipped out yesterday!!! yeah you gotta wait a little bit to talk to someone but they are still helpful. i also spoke to sharphid owner and hey is a solid person too. very very nice guy and very helpful. that is another choice for ppl who dont want to deal with DDM
