I always order from DDM tuning my last two cars, bike, and friends cars. Good prices along with good customer support. One downfall is shipping takes a bit, but for the prices and quality I personally haven't found better. Just got my truck so I haven't ordered any for it yet but I plan to after the holidays.

I second DDM I've installed four sets in my own vehicles.
Cant beat the price I've never had a problem with any of them.
If I was to do it over id go with 5 k for color, the 6k is a little blueish, but not bad.

HIDs

In my opinion you cannot beat Retro-Solutions. I have low beam and fog kits in my truck. I like the 5k better than the 6k--it is a little too blue, by not bad. I have ordered and installed about ten of their kits and have only had 1 ballast go bad. The best part about getting them from Retro is the lifetime warranty on all the parts of the kit. I have had technical issues/questions regarding different kinds of vehicles and Todd Strong always responds to my emails same day usually within a couple hours.

I can think of about 32 kits (not including bulbs we put with other ballasts)we have ordered from DDM over the last couple years still running around here few kits have been in more than 1 car and no problems. If you get complete kit has liftime war, just buy bulbs and they give you a 1 year.

I've bought DDM multiple times, the 6k is too blue for my preference. I've owned both and 5k is better IMO, nice and white.
