    i just don't you to come back angry that one side is working and the other one isn't. then you have to go back and forth with the seller troubleshooting a problem. (crosses fingers) that it works out for you

    They are a crap shoot, I put a set in my wifes Accord about three years ago, and they BLOW AWAY my new Morimoto D2S projectors, I'm pretty disappointed with them

    There are just not as impressive as I thought they would be, "maybe" I still have some tuning to do... NOT... save your money.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I have bought Ebay specials for three different vehicles and have had few to no problems. I mean sure there not projectors but they are way better then factory bulbs.But for the price you can't beat it shit the silver-stairs are 49.95 and there probably one if not the best halogen bulbs out.

    Looks ok. But then again, for just about the same price, you could go through DDM. I am on my 3rd set for my truck and they have all worked awesome. Not to mention it seems like they have gotten their shit together with shipping. Ordered on a thursday and they were at my door tuesday.

    Thats not what I said, I installed some (E-Bay Ones) in my wifes car over three years ago, they still are awsome, head and shoulders above the Morimotos D2Ss I have just installed in my truck. It's prolly tied to the shape of the reflector in the Accord, cause the HID bulbs/kit or whatever, sucked ass in my Taco. My minis don't impress me at all, I can run the highbeams on the highway and not even get flashed. They look good, and low beam spread is good, however they just don't have any "throw" down the road.

    is this the DDM kit everyone has on here? http://www.therpmstore.com/product_info.php?products_id=38

    those do seem like a better deal, but i wasnt even in the market for hid's when i bought them. i was just browsing ebay one night and said to myself "hey, these look cool" then i click the "buy it now" button... i have a bad habbit of doin this every time i go on ebay :eek:

    Is it possible you could get any output shots so we can see how bad or good these are? And what color temp bulbs are you using? Because I do know 4300K is the brightest. Thanks man!

    ***Just noticed you went with 6000K bulbs according to your other post. Swapping them out to Philips 85122+ 4300K bulbs might actually make a pretty significant difference as they are the brightest possible D2S bulbs made***
