e-bay HID kits...

What are some good KID kits, i was looking on e-bay, didn't see much

thats the best looking one i saw on there, but i've heard mixed things about dual bulb set-ups, and $126 (CAN) seemes really cheap for a kit, can anyone help out/give input/good places to buy? thanks!

I think they only have 2 kits now. Raptor and DDM. They even tell you what the differences are:

The main difference between Raptors and DDM is the warranty. DDM HID kits are also offered in 55W ballast while Raptors are only 35W. Both use Digital Slim Ballast.

Ballast Color:
Raptor : Silver (No logo on ballast)
DDM : Black (DDM logo)

Available Wattage:
Raptors: 35 watt
DDMs: 35 watt and 55watt

Warranty:
Raptors: 1-year
DDM: Life-time

Thank you GTO guys for this wonderful site. LOL

Maybe its a mistake on their part. I just think the Raptor brand is a little too cheap anyway.

thanks guys, what would be better to go with, 35w or 55w? they claim the 35w is 3x brighter then a 55w halogen so would a 55w HID be overkill?

awesome, thanks, i think ive only used my hi-beams a handful of times anyways, i was just thinking it may be good to have.

I'm thinking 6k heads and 5k fogs, i don't like the 3ks, although they are better in fog... i just like white light :)

or should i just go 6000/6000?

Apexcone Raptor Brand HID Kit: DDM Tuning - HID Kits, DEPO Lights, BMW & Porsche Lighting & Bumpers

this is the kit but you will have to change the options on the right from 35W to 55W from H1 bulb to
9007 Hi/Low and what ever color temp you want to have the same kit i ordered

i just seen this and im not sure if i was supposed to order it as well but it says it is recommend for all 55W kits so i think ill call and have them added to my order tommorow

Yes you need the relay kit for 55 watt kits. Without it the lights can flash at startup.
