    I was looking at ddmtuning.com at the hid kit and was wondering if anyone has gotten headlights from there, and which kit I would need for an 03?

    Thanks

    The reason why im wanting to go through ddm tuning is that theyre hid kit is 40 or 50 compared to the 125+ above, and that a friend of mine has a set of ddm's on his car and he has no complaints and they look really nice.

    Not sure which DDM kit you're looking at but whatever brand you end up going with, get a high and low beam kit. If you just get a standard kit you will not have any high beams. I made that mistake a few years ago. It sucked not having high beams.

    Thanks for the advice, but I'm gonna go with the ddm ones. Can anybody help on which bulbs go on an 03 and if I'd need a harness or error eliminator or anything else with it?

    Thanks

    sparkles, fairys, and happy things.
    DDM ones are fine for me. you want H4 bulbs, (hi/lo if you want high and low beams)
    I have 5k and no problems, But yeah just re aim them and youll be fine.

    The only thing that I didnt expect was that for some reason when my high beams are on the little blue high beams light on the dash doesnt come on. IDK why. but it doesnt matter to me.
