IDK. Usually the hi/low kits that I have seen have a control box for the hi/low control. If all you have is the bulbs then you are missing parts. What brand is is? Check their website for online instructions.

Yeah it says bulbs only man. You need the control box and ballasts to make them work.



^^That kit isn't a hi/low kit but each bulb needs a ballast and ignitor like shown. In your case you need a third box which is the hi/low control box.

Yeah did you think you were getting the whole thing? It clearly says bulb only. I don't know if you can just buy the ballasts seperatly, it might be cheaper just getting a entire kit and selling those bulbs.

You need the ballasts and hi/low control box for a 9007 bulb.

Here is the kit:HID Kits: DDM Tuning - HID Kits, DEPO Lights, BMW Bumpers & Lighting I personally think the Raptor kit is too cheap. I use the DDM brand and always have good luck with them.

Not all HID kits are compatible with each other. If you have a low beam DDM kit now you still need the hi/low control box.

Yeah, hi/low bulbs wont work with just a low ballast box. You need that control box and you might need a new ballast as well. I would email/call DDM and see what they say. Just tell them that you have a low HID kit already and was wondering if there was any way to make hi/low bulbs work with it and what you would need to buy.
