    Hello all, I am very new to HID'S; I just installed some DDM 6000k HID'S for my fog lights yesterday. I bought the kit off of someone on the buy/sell/ trade.

    I know need HID'S for my headlights, I want 6000k HID'S from DDM.

    Will this fit the tacoma headlights?

    DDM HID Kit Slim Ballast (35W) 45$, 6000k, h1. I dont use high beams much where I live.


    Does this seem like a good deal for some hids? and will set up be as easy as the headlights? Also, what is "Dual in/Dual out harnesses? And what is h3, h4, etc etc? This shi* is confusing me.

    Careful with DDM. You get what you pay for. Some have had OK experiences. Others have not.

    Well I can spend up to 110$ on HID'S, and my buddy tells me there solid. The fogs are mint, just want really nice ballasts for my headlights. Is there another kit you would recommend that can run 6000k 35w?

    Ddm is a hit or miss company.

    I have their products, no where else can I get 3 sets for under 150. Been holding up good in my offroad lights so far.

    I too have slims hids. I started with 35w 6000k, but didn't like the color on the road. I now use the same ballasts but bought 4300k bulbs, looking into a set of 5000k bulbs..
