Re: need good headlights, any advice?

Way too expensive? Can't really offer anything for less than 100.00. Hid kits are iffy, DDK is probably the only ones I'd recommend. Headlight restore kit and some PIAA GTX bulbs would top out around 100.00, and no random dead ballasts. Factory setups usually need to be aimed before you try brighter bulbs.

What's your budget?

I just ordered 6000K 35W Hids from DDM Tuning and it cost me a total of $90 with shipping for 9006 bulbs. Full kit. I would check there. Ordered them and within a day they were shipped.

Re: need good headlights, any advice?

Get some Projectors then add some D2's and you be set and cops will have a hard time complaining since its more legal if you add HID's with projectors. Since it doesn't shine as much and it doesn't bother the other drivers unlike, when you have no Projectors with regular headlights.

Re: need good headlights, any advice?

I have some depo's and when I got my DDM tuning h1 hid's they were too long for the housing and kept rubbing on the reflector peice. Keep in mind when you buy them idk if it's just depos or OEM is the same.

Re: need good headlights, any advice?

300 bucks for HID's? Seems like too much for some light lol DDM tuning and other brands that cost around 100 bucks last forever and seem to work fine.
