They pretty much only go one way man, just make sure those metal rods are the same way on both bulbs

Default Re: Ddm is not selling hid's for much longer

Matt, what do you recommend, 35 watt or 55 watt? I would like either the 6000k look or the 8000k look. Thanks.

I personally recommend 35 watt as you can run them without a relay. 6k would be a bit brighter

I have the hi/lo, and it works AMAZING! I can see everything, haha.
I know I'm not Matt, but if you just wanted a quick opinion...

Is it possible, if you don't mind, could I get a picture of the beams both high and low? I appreciate it. Send me a pm. Thanks boss.

If you're going to get the 55W kit then just get the hi/lo as it comes with a relay harness so the hi/lo is only like a $5 upgrade. 35W doesn't need a relay so can't help you there.

I just put in a DDM hi/lo kit and the high beams is basically pointless, only advantage is that you can flash.

Right. The hi/lo kits come with a relay.

What I'm saying though is that a 35W lo kit does not need a relay. A 55W kit does (i think) need a relay. So instead of buying a 55W kit + a relay, just buy the hi/lo option to get the relay.
