Just Installed Xenons

Installed Xenon HID's from DDM today.
I ordered the H13 hi/lo kit and the H10 kit for the foggers. I only ordered one relay harness, thinking I would need it only for the fogs..I read other guys had to up the fuse size cuz of start up current, and I didn;t want to do that.
Turned on the switch and , NOTHING.

I don't recall reading anyone say they required a relay kit for the headlites.
So I hooked up the harness and they fired up. ????
So I guess at the least, I need another relay harness. Could it be
that the tap for the plow switch affected it ?

These are the lamps that magnetically move the lamp in and out to change position for Hi beam. High beam doesn't work.
There are only 2 pins on the power "in" to the ballast, how would the ballast know to "activate" the lamp movement ? I must be missing something.
I'll call cust service tomorrow, and update the post.
The price was good, lamps lolok great, WOW, I don't think I NEED hi beams anymore.

Any updates? I am curious as to how they work...I just don't want the oncoming traffic to be blinded. If every car flashes you, I might go with some new projector headlights and then install the HID's.

I received the extra wiring harness in the mail friday. So thats cool, I hooked up my fogs. WOW, this combo is extremely bright. I don't get flashed with just the headlites on, but I think it's too much with fogs on too, and would prob blind other drivers.
The kits from DDM are definitely worth the money, slim ballasts and modular plugs made installation and hiding the wires easy. Directions are vague, and theres an extra wire that you don't need to use, but it's not hard to figure out.

Ditto...even if I did get the projectors, I would NOT hook up the "angel eyes".

My main concern was the issue of blinding the oncoming traffic...had some idiot about a year or so ago that had HIDs but didn't aim them properly...talk about p!$$ing me off....But with what LordVader says, I won't have to worry about it.

It's the correct way to use HIDs. It's to eliminate all the glare the comes from putting a HID kit into a halogen reflector headlight. The projectors Mike used are from an Acura TL not a BMW. Even if it was from a BMW it's the projector you use and not the entire headlight assembly.
