Well I took the time last night after work to mess with the bastard. We got the hid kit in from ddm tuning. Excellent products by the way. Install was a breeze and it has the small digital ballasts and has nice mounting brackets for an extra 4.00 well worth it. Tramp and I went for a short ride to the lake last night to try them out after I was done. Complete night and day difference. for the person that wants to install your own hid kit, this is the way to go. super simple and super inexpensive. the full kit(2 digital ballasts, bulbs, and i even added the ballast mounts) came out to 62.00 shipped and it took about a week and a half to get them. they also have a complete lifetime warranty on the bulbs and ballasts both. i need to fiddle with the headlight adjustment a bit, but as they are there is no comparison to them from a regular halogen set up. if you have never used hids you dont know what you are missing, literally.....


These 2 are with tramps hids on also.

Also HID are not as irritating to the eyes of an oncoming driver as are Halogen on bright, you can ride around with both HID's on and it don't "blind" the oncoming traffic so bad

Be careful with the ddm tuning kits. I ha e had three different sets from them and almost every time it would rain I would loose a ballast. Suppose to be water proof but are not. I use xentec off eBay they also have a lifetime warranty for both items Nd is only a three day delivery wait. Just my. 02. Looks good though

There warranty only covers the shipping to them for........1 WEEK I bought the optional harnesses and brackets in an attempt to not have problems. One didn't work at all so I sent it back. The sent a used one with rusty screws and crap. Now another one has gone out in right at 2 months. And, they won't even cover shipping?!?! Nope...won't be buying anything else from DDM.

That's why I no longer use ddm tunning. My last time they got my address wrong. ( they put it on the package twice) and said it was my fault and cost me another 20 to get the damn bulbs. never again.
