Default DDM Raptor HID Help

Hey guys, just few quick questions. I have a 98 with NO fog lights. Looking at the DDM Raptor kit....

Wattage - 35W or 55W?
Bulb Type - 9007 Hi/Low
Bulb Color - 5000K(35W) or 6000K(55W)
HID Harness - Do I need this (dual in/dual out $12.50)
Error Code Eliminator - Read I don't need
Adaptor cables - I'm assuming I don't need these? (H1/H7 to 9006)
Mounting Brackets - For $4 I might as well

Just hope someone can answer my questions before I order.

Thanks!

I say go with 55w 6K, 9007 bulb (you don't really need hi/lo, they are freakin bright) but if you want it, you want it lol. and that's all you need. should be $40 plus shipping or a little more if you get hi/lo.

35 watt (9007) is plenty, the rest is all color preference. I went with 6000k and they have a hint of blue on the lamp but shine super bright white. I would also recomend the $4 brackets, if they had them when i got mine I would have picked up a few. I personally like the Hi/Lo option for the ability to flash but thats just me. You dont need any of that other stuff you listed.

I agree the 35W are bright enough, I just went with the 55w because they weren't on back order. but I did get 35w fogs. I kinda wish i would have got the hi/lo just to be able to flash but I'm not that worried about it. well said though drew

My thoughts exactly. I rarely flash but IMHO it's worth the $15 or so just to have that option.

My thoughts exactly. I don't have fogs either, so I'm sure the hi's will be used a little more than someone with fogs.
