    Whoever gives the best warranty. The kits are generally the same unless the company puts them together using higher end brand ballasts and bulbs. DDM is usually pretty good as far as cheap kits go.

    Well all the cheap kids usually use the same Chinese made ballasts for the most part. That being said, as mentioned, DDM offers lifetime warranty and I don't really hear any issues with them generally. I had a "cheap" kit from a different company in my previous vehicle and it held up fine for 2 years til I got rid of that car and sold the kit and as far as I know it's still working for it's new owner.
