So I ordered the 55w 6000k DDM Tuning HID kit. It was an upgrade from the 35w and I also ordered the mounting brackets as well. Grand total before shipping $43.99. So after my third set of headlights (DRL MOD not done prior to this) I figured that it was worth a try. I ordered the kit on 2/3/13. Standard shipping the kit came in yesterday 2/20/13. Why did it take so long...... it came from China. Here is what I got.



So the box had me skeptical of its contents but everything arrived intact and the ballast are aluminum not plastic like i thought they would be. Even the bulbs had their own hard plastic cases.






The install is pretty straight forward and can be accessed in PDF form on the DDM tuning website.

The install is pretty easy and the only tools needed are basic hand tools to mount your ballasts and a drill with a 7/8" bit to run through the back of your headlight dust covers.




Removing the headlights are pretty straight forward but it might be easier to remove your intake box to have more room to work.

I did remove the battery to mount the ballast and it made the whole install ten times easier.



There was plenty of room for the harness and I used an existing tapped hole to mount the ballasts.



I will update with pics of the lights on when it gets dark. I also did the DRL mod today and if you haven't done it yet here is the link.
