    Starting to get into building up my 2010 DC, and one of the mods i would like to do is install some HID lights. I was looking at DDMTuning.com and found these....

    http://ddmtuning.com/products/101/

    I have read the sticky by viet2100 and saw the bulb sizes for high and low beams and referred to the owner's manual, but my question is which bulb is it on the DDMTuning site? I see everything from H1-H4, 9000's etc. If anyone can shine some light (no pun intended ;)) on the type of bulb it would be great help to me. I am looking to do the headlight and foglights. Thanks!

    Click on the "bulb color" on the info tab to see the different colors each "k" represents. (For instance, 3000k compared to 6000k)
