Do a search because there a company that I cant remember the name of selling HID kits for like $35... Think it is DTMtuning but not sure on that.

DDM parts are terrible. The bulbs run hot and the ballasts are unreliable. I've measured the noise from a DDM ballast and you can clearly see the output is junk.

i know JP7 likes the high end stuff, but I've had DDM's HIDs in my projectors for almost a year now with no problems. after long drives, they are still cool to the touch, etc.

i think for the average joe, ddm is perfect. if you can afford the high end stuff, than that is your choice.

no, but they will scatter the light instead of focusing it to the area it's supposed to go.

Which projectors do you have?

How many times have you looked at the reflective surface on the inside of the projector housing?
