    HID Reviews.

    Which HID kits work the best? Basically, which brand or company would be my best bet at getting longativity and good looks out of HIDs?

    Reviews, opinions, and advice is needed. I'm ready to buy them anytime, just need to know which company to buy from.

    By the way, im thinking about 10K for my lo's and fog lights, and 6K for hi's.

    ddmtuning... Were they easy to install? How long have they been working so far? No problems?

    And did you get Hids for all 6 lights?

    Very easy to install. All plug & play. So far so good, but don't drive the car too much. I also have them in the Yukon and drive it everyday. No issue with them at all.

    Just got them for the lows. Highs won't work well.

    6000k have a hint of blue. I changed them to 5000k, much brighter and whiter. I have 55 watts in the Yukon and 35 watts in the Camaro.

    I am thinking about 55w, 12k for the lo's and 35w 10k for the fogs so they would match being that they have a different power input. Do you think they will turn out with too much blue?

    And then 55w, 8K for the hi's. Or would i be better off with a different set up?

    12k is really blue. I don't think you would it. How much blue are you looking for?

    Well being that they are 55w, ddm said they will "wash" the color down, so it may appear as if it is 10k.

    Possibly this blue, or one step more for the fogs/lo's. I figure these lights would end up more for show based on area in which i drive.

    Also, I think a bright crystal white/ iceburg blue would look and work best for hi's. So where does that put us now?

    A bit more blue than most HIDs, i might be happiest with a 9, because im split on whether i should get 8K or 10K for the lo's/fogs.

    But they dont sell those...

    remember the whiter the light the bulb puts off the more darkness it cuts. Also 12k's are extremely blue and a little too much for my taste but its all personal preferance

    i love the way 10k's look its surprising how much of a color difference there is between them and 12k's

    I have 6000K from DDM Tuning. I have fogs too waiting to be put in. I want to get projectors for the headlights as well.



    They are more blue in person than what the picture shows. If I had to do it all over again, I would keep them the same or even go whiter with 5000k. 8000K would be way too blue IMO. Above 8000K would just look stupid IMO.

    Then you really don't want much blue.

    5000k is probaby what you need. With 55 watts you would light up everything.

    wicked's HID kit does look pretty darn good i think. much better than my 8K in my bike. just a tad to much blue and doesnt light up as much as i had hoped.
