Re: Hid Questions

ddm tuning is good. yea they are H1. but i think you need hi/low i just got the h1 reg. im not sure which exactly but they dont seem to fit properly in headlight. they like "float" in there. the clamp doesnt seem to hold them in right. so im not sure if i need to get the other set or not. 55watt is cool i got 6k and they are bright as hell. 35watt is cool too but i think ddm give 55watt standard cause they didnt ask me what type i wanted. 35bills gets you full set. bulbs and ballast

Re: Hid Questions

I got the h1 bulbs as well, but from HID warehouse. If you get the H1 bulbs you have to modify the brass spring clip in the housing to hold it. not too difficult. I've also heard that H7 bulbs will fit in there, just need to trim a little plastic off, but a better fit without modification of the clip.

Re: Hid Questions

You really should get the 35w over the 55w unless you're doing a retrofit. The glare in the stock housing can be pretty bad.

Re: Hid Questions

i have the 55w and they are a little brighter but it's not extremely different.
my friend has the 35w, so i in fact do have a comparison test.

No.. He is saying that the 55w hids are brighter and since our headlights weren't designed for hids they blind oncoming traffic more.. One reason why hids glare in the first place is because of the metal deflector in our headlights.

Re: Hid Questions

35W - Bulbs last longer, but they're not as bright (OEM HID wattage).
55W - Brighter, but bulbs don't last quite as long.
Get H1 adapters; don't mess with the metal clip: 2x HID XENON ACURA RSX H1 Adapter Holder Prelude - eBay (item 220674511742 end time Jan-23-11 1648 PST)

EDIT: And I have no f*cking idea why Cartman is eating potato chips in my link...

Re: Hid Questions

55w drop-in kits will burn the chrome off of your headlights. Same with projectors.
