Default what brand HID's are you running?

So I am going to do low beam and fog HID kits, but havent decided where I want to get the HID's from....I've used DDM in the past, but reliability was always an issue. So, what brands are you guys running? Are you happy with them thus far?

Upcharge is for the wiring harness and the resistors.

I just installed Retro Solutions 5000K HID Low Beam Lights 55 Watt. It was an easy install.


I have DDM Tuning 3000k HID 35 watt in my fog lights. Have to have the wiring harness or the bulbs will flicker.

Just like gcscott said, the upcharge is to prevent all the horror stories you hear about it the rams and the flickering lights and ballasts not working. it also includes the harness to keep you from getting a the bulb out indicators and makes the entire thing plug and play.. when i installed mine the hardest part was choosing what brew i wanted to drink while installing it

I've been running Philips Xenons in the lights (high, low & fogs) for almost 2 years now. Full wiring harness with ballasts. No issues until a relay on the harness went funny last week, but relays do go bad
