I just ordered mine from ddm tuning just because I hear good things from everyone who has ordered from them, I went with 6000K in my hi/low and fogs and paid 160 for everything which was also the lowest around from other sites I checked

Here's a few pics of my 8k hid's.
I love them, and never going back to halogen lights.

I bought them from a friend, who bought them from Texas for $50. I only paid $30, had em for about a year, and never had a problem with them.

Yeah, there either 8k or 9k, but not 100% sure. So I'm sticking on 8.5k lol, not really. There shouldn't be much diff in 8k-9k. I was td the lower you go the more purple they get, higher the more red. Mines in-between

well not really...a bit backwards...depending on your wattage you're gonna see

here's your average 35w chart


now if you have 55w's you'd need to bump up the temp a few grand to match colors...so i.e. 8k's = 6k's in 55w just about

Backwards indeed lol, btw ty for the chart. I'm pretty sure mine are 55w or 65w. I'll check tomorrow, too cold to go out with a flashlight and pop my hood to check.

I ordered mine from them they said I did not need the error eliminators. Mines 02 not sure about the05+ I think when u are filling your cart and get down to the specifics it will let u select the error eliminators if u need them if it doesn't let u select u don't need them
