    Seriously, I am in Oceanside and would prefer to see the product in person and if I have any questions, ask in person.

    I went to DDM Tuning in person to get HIDs and was so disappointed by their lack of customer service & curtosy after driving all the way down there, I wouldn't consider ordering from them... even if they are 1/3 the price.

    I don't allow local pickups. When I order these kits I get them in a bulk and box them all up together. I have a fast system so you will have your kit probably the next day I get the kits. Hope you understand but it's just easier for me and less chaotic.

    I totally understand I would be pissed too. I don't have an office or whatever like DDM tuning. I am purely putting on a group buy for you guys and group ordering the lights. I don't carry them on hand for people to come by and check them out. So if you want to get in on the group buy you'll have to see through pictures and everyones positive feedback. If you ever need help with something and want to speak with me I can definitley help you over the phone. Ask around on here and you'll see that my customer service is outstanding compared to others. I hope you understand. :)

    I don't have the specs in front of me but the light bulbs I believe last around 4,000 hours of run time. The kit comes with a 12 month warranty so if anything goes bad you can go through me. The bulbs also if you need to buy replacements you can go through me or any other store that sells HID bulbs.

    I have the connection through my brothers wholesale shop. He told me to keep the company name disclosed because of the discounts I am giving.

    Hi Slim,

    Please don't take the following as anything other than curiosity:

    A couple of questions...

    Discounts? With several other HID sources selling bulb kits for 1/2 or less this price... just how much is the 'normal' price for these better lights?

    Yes, I know they work great... but does your brother really sell these for much more, and stay in business?

    Sorry, but when you stage these special one time only deals every few months instead of letting us buy anytime from your brother, you could at least let us know how much we are saving by waiting for your offers?

    No disrespect, and you have every right to make money for your efforts and service... It is just your 'discount' claim that had me wondering...

    I do like your help, and that is worth more than what DDM charges! But, no need to say you are giving us a super secret discount over your brother's price... You can charge more because you give more! Okay?

    Thanks !!

    When you say it's $15.95 flat rate shipping, is that per box of lights, or per order? So If I were to buy kits for my heads and fogs, would it be $16 or $32 to ship them?

    They are boxed individually and shipped so it is per kit.

    I understand where you are coming from. The 'discount' is actually quite a lot compared to what my brother sells them from his store front. The kits are discounted $50+ off of what they are normally sold for. So I would think that is a pretty good discount for waiting. I am not trying to lure you in with the misconception of a discount when there really is one. If I haven't covered all your questions please let me know what I have missed. And I am not taking your questions or anybody elses questions in any wrong way. :)

    Have you tried searching if their really is any problems with HID's in the 2000's? The headlights come with shields so I am not to sure why the other guy would think you would be blinding anybody. I am not sure with the older housings on how they look etc but I would definitley search around and see whats up with that.
