Quality HID kit?

I am looking at getting tinted headlights and also want to see at night. I think HID's are the best way to go but there are so many cheap kits I don't want to buy junk. Does anyone recommend any of these cheaper kits that have lasted along time? I also saw a YouTube video demonstrating a quality kit and this kit fits the description. Has anyone used these?

I have smoked headlights too, I got the upgraded bulbs from American muscle, and can drive without hi beams, in town, outa town deff want ur hi beams

I will be purchasing ddm hids soon, alot of people have purchased them, and say only downside is it comes straight from factory in china so takes alittle while to get to your door
Some even run 35 w hids on their headlights on here just because hids get hot, I guess so they don't have to work at all bout melting

Did someone call?

The only quality hid "kit" I would recommend is a retrofit setup. Expect to spend $500 or so.

Move to a city with street lights everywhere. I've forgot to even use my headlights before because I can see just fine.

DDM is great quality. One of my ballasts gave out and they replaced it for free. 12V 55W and they look gorgeous. 100% better light output in my smoked headlights. I've been in intersections in front of cops and never had a problem. Driven behind my dad (pickiest man I know) and he said mine don't blind him like "those stupid Hondas" I don't know why people hate on HID's maybe they have real sensitive eyes or something

appreciate......the problem most people have is aiming. such a simple thing is forgotten 99% of the time which leads to some people being hard asses on the product at hand. i can't blame them i too dislike when some jack hole comes down the road with non aimed HIDs lol..of course i pass by them quick enough so no worries i don't think about it to much.
