I've seen that site advertising 60% off for more than 2 months. I've started to think that 60% off is merely a gimmick, I mean I don't see $150 chinese kit anywhere. Non-Philips kit for $85 (with 5 yr warranty) is a bit too much considering DDM tunning kit is 45 bucks cheaper and comes with lifetime warranty.
Is it possible to use Philips HID bulbs with the DDM ballasts?
You an I are not the only ones affected by the economy. Seen any other sites doing this same advertising thing? I sure have. Even if it is a full time "gimmick" so what... the "you pay" price is what counts in the end.
I have been modding cars for a lot of years and have seen a lot of these kits. I have used many for long periods of time. While I have not used DDM and can not honestly testify to the quality - I saw this kit on a coworkers car and I am positive that the quality is quite high. This sales guy I talked to today stood behind them to the point of giving me a written replacement warranty. If I ever have a problem with any part of the kit he will just send me a new one. He trusts his product! I own a business and you don't offer that unless you KNOW you will not need it. Is DDM a better deal? Maybe I can't say.... I can say with years of experience that cheaper is not always better. Am I very happy with what I purchased having seen the quality and getting the replacement warranty. You bet!
Don't forget I got the Phillips spec. (I have never seen a bulb the gets better accolades than that).
I call BS. With any HID kit in a reflector housing you will increase the glare to other drivers on the road, no matter the kelvin temperature, or bulb type/brand.
Be carefull making such broad statements. You may discover someday that you were not correct and wish you did not say such things. That being said... In this case I agree with you to a point. I'll agree that glare will increase. But my point of view is that the glare will not increase enough to be a problem. What I am saying is... When it is 65 degrees outside it is not a problem for anyone - when it is 75 degrees it may be a problem for a select few. Although the temp went up (or we can say the glare increased) it is still not to the point when anyone really cares. Know what I am saying. Now you may be one who is hard core against hid's I don't know. If that is the case I will never make my point understood with you, but please just understand that dif people have dif views of things and that is okay. I look at the hid issue of dramatically increasing my safety and the safety of my family. Also I can Honestly say I have never been blinded or annoyed or anything like that by other people's hid's, factory or otherwise.

Thanks for your opinion. no need to repeat all that I already said about the cost of them. I'll just add... True cost of owning something is not what you pay up front. It is also quality, lengh of time it lasts problem free, and ease of replacement. I think I got a good value. I am happy that is what counts right. I think this is a great middle of the road kit. Not near the price of Hoen but not near the garbage of well I shouldn't name names... but I have had some bad ones.
If you want to ... let me know what you think is a lot better for cheaper. I will tell you if I have tried it and my honest opinion if you want it.
To all: I am NOT saying that what I got is def the absolute best thing I could have done. There is always a better deal out there than what you just did. We all know that. All I am saying is that I think I did good and I am happy. When I started this thread I wasn't looking to compare deals with anyone.... I just wanted to know if anyone had these and what they thought of them.
