Default Ddm is not selling hid's for much longer

Just throwing it out there for you guys that if you plan to buy HID's now or very soon is the time to do it. DDM is phasing out of the HID business and focusing on LEDs and other BMW things. Plan to see no more DDM tuning HID kits on their website within a couple weeks.

Lifetime warranty's will still be honored, they will keep inventory solely for that reason.

Hid market is a 20 year old market. Its been at it's peak for a long time, it's just time to go a different direction with LEDs and other BMW products

Does this also mean that the warranty is no more?

I guess I'll have to speed up deciding wether to revert my heads to halogen, or buy another set for my fogs to match the hid heads...

Shame, they seemed to be a very reputable company, and just a few months ago ddm couldn't even keep up with the demand..

So does that mean they are moving from hid kits to led bulbs?

A good friend of mine sells HID kits. http://www.f4dlighting.com

I got my Raptor 55 watt kit for my car from him.
