    i took a look at the dmmtuning place and it seems legit. I can't remember off the top of my head what our dual bulb type is. i didn't see the fog light bulb on that list for possible kit either or am i not looking close enough? what's everyones experience with their hid kits?

    Cool, i'm going to be buying some soon. Is the difference between the 35w and 55w worth it? Do the bulbs burn out sooner? The brighter the better for where i am especially at night and in a storm...Gona do yellow hid fogs at 35w too.

    Not trying to thread jack, but he said he got his answers soooooo... Can you use a kit from DDM and retrofit with the kit later? how do i say this... Like if i dont have the 300+ dollars for a kit from TheRetrofitSource, can i buy the DDM kit, and then buy shrouds and ballasts later and retrofit the kit from DDM?

    Look at build!
    Yes the H4 for 01-04 is...took me about 15 minutes to hook it all up and secure everything...I used some velcro from walmart to hold everything up and out of the way and everything is holding up fine since july 2010

    x2 then i will just give my DDM kit to my mom for her 04 :D
