Re: HID kit

No, it's a general car site....hence the "Shop by manufacturer" option.

On a side note, I've read a lot of positive reviews about their HID kits.

Re: HID kit

The higher the number the more purple/blue you will get. Most people go with a 6k kit as it's the best for most for sight purposes.

Do not do the 55W upgrade unless you plan on rewiring the entire headlight setup.

I have heard alot about this company and how it's a stand up product.

Re: HID kit

the price is what got me. I got my kit for 80 bucks. I odered the slim kit. American Muscle sells a kit for over 2bills. I couldnt pass up the price and the life time warranty. the 6000k 35w kit seems to be the most popular kit. however i live in california so 6000k has to much blue in the bulb. And blue lights can lead to a ticket. thats why i went 5000k.

Re: HID kit

I've heard of them but never personally dealt with them. FWIW there is an argument that after ~5000 K the other light is just unused.

Also anything over 6000 K is just questioning your sexuality.

Re: HID kit

So I've been looking into getting a HID kit but I have to ask. How hard are they to install? While I can get around installing the basic's I don't like to get in over my head. What is really involved and how long does it take on average to install?

IMO anything over 8k is just dumb. I had a 6k kit on my truck and didn't like it because it looked more green then anything. So i'd only get 5k or 8k. I got an 8k for my svt, but if I dont like the light i'm going to just order a set of 5k bulbs.

Re: HID kit

If you can change your bulbs (and sometimes do some 'basic' wiring), you can install HIDs. They can take 15 minutes or an hour.

As for the bulb temperature it can be hard to tell. Each manufacturer has certain temps that will range in color, none are completely equal to 6k K, which is why your color was green, which IMO is a weird color to even have. The 8k K mark is probably a better limit, all I meant was don't get a deep blue or purple or yellow. White or a tint of blue is where it should be.

I find it interesting that BMW, Audi and all nice cars' HIDs have a near white or slight blue tint while a 1991 Honda Civic that's beat up and a POS has dark blue, pink, purple or yellow HIDs. Makes the car look worse.

Re: HID kit

the color of the bulb has to do with the balast not the bulb its self. also the wattage of the balast. theres a big difference between 35w and 55w.

Re: HID kit

I did this on my stang with a HID from stangmods.com. Went with the 6k bulbs, and love em, barely a tint of blue, just enough so its not a dull white. Pretty simple install, just make sure the connections are secure, I didn't have any fog light wiring so I had to run wires for that as well.

Had some screwy issues with it until I realized my connection on the battery wasn't very secure

Re: HID kit

The guys in the bike world also speak highly of DDM. Looks to be a quality product. I'll probably pick up a kit to put on my 600RR this summer when I get some extra funds.

Re: HID kit

The the other day I went back to my old job to see what kind of deal i could get on some HID's. I showed him what I saw on American Muscle and what I saw on DDM. he said that they were over priced on american muscle and he actully sells the DDM kits and had no comeplaints.

so yeah i think i got a great deal

The temperature usually refers to the bulb. For instance you can usually switch between 3K and 10K just by changing the bulbs. Unless the manufacturer specifically makes their kits so only one ballast can be used per bulb but that would be silly and drive up production costs. The ballasts are based on wattage and yes there is a difference between 35W and 55W. While not a rule of thumb but just on what I've seen, most "plug and play" are 35W and 55W require direct power from the battery which really isn't that much more work or harder.

The 55w also generate a lot more heat and are more prone to melt your headlight housing if it is smaller in size.
