Re: H.I.D. Taking a while to turn on

Mine used to do that when I first got them. Like one bulb would come on then the other wouldn't. I just turned them both off and then turned them back on and they both came on at the same time. Same thing with my fogs and for some reason it's only the passenger side but I've never heard of them taking that long to come on, I know they take awhile to come on but not 10 minutes. I would have them checked out with an automotive electrical just to see if there's not a shortage in your wires or anything. Good luck man.

Perfect place to buy them. Just took them about 14 days to get here but I have no issues with my DDMTuning HID's. I have 55w 8000k in the heads and 35w 6000k in the fogs and they match perfectly. Make sure you don't get 55w in your fogs cause they'll melt your housings. If you want them to match from 35w and 55w always get one lower than your 55w with 35w lol. Hope that isn't too confusing.

Re: H.I.D. Taking a while to turn on

Is this all I need for hids? And what does it mean by high beams and low beams rather than just low?

It means all you're gonna get is low beams. So like when you're driving and you got your low beams on and switch to high beams they're just gonna shut off. Your low beams are gonna be bright enough but I got highs in mine and I love it. Just cause I don't wanna have to worry about them shutting off and plus I do a lot of night driving. In my opinion it's worth a little extra money to get the high beams too. Just lows are aggravating especially when you do a lot of night driving without street lights like I do.
