Raxiom and HIDs

Just throwing this up there. I know another member did, but I showed what has to happen for them to be installed. Atleast if you get the DDM Tuning HIDs.

So I have the 35W 5000K HIDs.

took about 30 mins with a dremel tool.

These suckers are far brighter than the pictures even show. And sadly enough they produce less heat than the stock H9 bulbs with the Raxioms.

Overall very happy, minus the fact that my foglight 4200K H11 bulbs look yellow. Going to need some 5000K H11 HID fogs to match now. Probably order those shortly and then wait another 3 weeks for them lol.

I just installed my lower fogs from DDM yesterday with 4500k 35W as well, I'm happy with the way they look when theyre on but slightly disappointed that they were substantially bluer than the stocks... My biggest complaint is that I have auto headlights and when I start the car with the auto headlights and it seems to fight for voltage either one or both of them won't light up... When I flick the switch off then on, they light right up

interesting. Mine are pretty dead white at 5000K but your headlights being a little warmer does make them look blue. Yeah I did the same thing. Turned the headlights on and then started the car and they both cut out then one managed to turn on. I am thinking I might need the harness deal DDM sells for the fogs to supply them power. Since it is 10 bucks might order 2 to be safe and use them for both the fogs and headlights to solve the voltage issue.

Yea I had 6k HIDs on my last car... Upper and lower with 2 harness and they lit up pretty solid, I figured I could get away not using it this time since on the DDM website it stated it wasn't necessary for the 35W system... I guess I'll just get in the habit of always turning off my fogs and turn the on when I need them... They always fire right up after the car is running... Here's another pic stock vs halogen on the lower

Good stuff! Love the way raxioms and HIDs look. I'm getting my grille fogs retrofitted with halos and projectors also so they will match the raxioms.

Has anyone's ever smoked before? The 04 gt we have had the bids installed where its only one brightness. We had them install a different type that has two settings and they worked perfect at first even with smoked headlights but soon after one headlight was going out and than they started smoking. They didn't know what was wrong. Any suggestions?

Are you saying they switched to bi-xenons? They probably got way too hot and started melting the housings.

No you can not do that. You can either run regular 35W HIDs or you can run the upgraded raxiom bulbs. Either way, the brighter HIDs are known to melt the projectors and in some cases the housings also. Switching to a true Hid projector is also a viable option.

Sorry to thread jack

Does anyone know what size bulb i may need for my 13' gtcs fogs? Im assuming a ballast and bulb combo? Ive dealt with DDM before with my 07 zx6r and really like their products. Could anyone maybe point me in the right direction? Just trying to match my fogs as close to my headlights as i can. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well I dunno if u saw my pics?? But they are a bit more blue than the stock HIDs, so maybe if u can search for 4300K somewhere else besides DDM since they only carry 4500k... I was a bit disappointed at first, but I now like the slight blue effect

Get morimoto 35W 4300k H11s. I'm pretty sure that's the size of those fogs

They are H9 bulbs for the raxioms and they don't have a high beam. The raxioms have a lenses that flips open to allow them to shine higher. I can't see needing a high beam with these. I am sure some would want it. I just think they are bright enough.

Oh if I hit the high beam it just opens up the projector more. Honestly not sure if people would see that or not. Have to ask someone and see.
