I would go check out what ddmtuning has to offer. When i was looking into getting HIDs it seemed like that where everybody got theirs with no complaints.

HID Kits, BMW Aftermarket Bumpers & Lighting, DEPO - DDM Tuning

i have the DDM kit. its good. they have a lifetime warrenty. i have had no issues aside from a ballast that will ocasionally not fire, click the lights again and comes back on... i have had to unplug the it and plug it back in twice...no big deal. i have had the kit almost a year. I have the 55w kit and its birght.... if i were any taller i would have to go to a 35w kit...keep that in mind. btw 8k is really damn blue... i would look at 6

Alright so 6K, 35W, when you bought it did you buy the HID harness, Error Eliminator an adaptor cables? Do you have the high and low?

Can I get a pic of what it looks like under the hood?

I can attest to VVME had my HID kits from them for about 3-4 years now. DDM is supposedly just as good. I would stick with either one.

I'm actually considering replacing mine at some point in the near future although there is nothing wrong with them. Right now I have two VVME kits that use an older analog ballast and are 35w. I run them off a relay harness for both. It would be nice to upgrade to digital and I would like to find a high/low beam kit for my main headlamps that switch from 35w to 55w when enabling the high beams

I'm pretty sure none of the rangers require an Error Eliminator as they don't have the bulb malfunction indication system that some newer cars have. At least the 2000's dont

So I think I'm gonna get the high/ low kit, 6K. Do I need the adaptor cables or harness??

Not to sound stupid but when I order the hi/low kit for wattage 35 good or should I do 55?

Any pics on how they are mounted would help...
