couple questions about HID's

OK so i've been looking around at them. and curious one of the options is a 55w ballast(for like $20 more) or a 35w Ballast.. whats the difference? or i mean, why would i pick one over the other?

guessing is that the 55w will light up fully, faster? brighter? or what

Re: couple questions about HID's

the 55w will make them brighter, thats all. but i have been told that it lowers the color of the bulb by 1K, so choose your K rating accordingly.

Re: couple questions about HID's

I wouldn't even think about 55w unless you will be retrofitting them into projectors. I have 35watt in mine with stocker's and let me tell ya...they are bright enough to get flashed at.

I have 55w in my motorcycle which has a projector..and it is amazing light..but focused as it should be.

x2 you need projectors for 55w due to the little reflector piece infront of the bulb on the lows it will glare like all hell and you wont get too much light on the road cuz of it.

ddm is a great brand for hids i just put some in my 5th gen.

get 5000k they have the best light output.

edit: you can use 55w for brights. since you dont use those around other cars anyway.
