DDM Tuning HIDs [5th gen]

Anyone have the slim ballast HIDs?

Just got them and they wont fit in the housing, when i clip them in they move around all loose like. There is a plastic washer that looks like it would keep them in nice and tight, but you cant get the clip around it, so i removed it, now when i clip the bulb in, it moves around like a son of a bitch, any advice? Holler at your dude.

Re: DDM Tuning HIDs [5th gen]

I have the same slim ballast HIDs with no problems except for the loose connection you described between the ballast and the thing that normally hooks into a bulb. It's REALLY loose... not sure how to solve this problem, but mine have been working out quite well regardless. Sorry for not being able to fully answer your question.
