I have bought quite a few sets from ddmtuning and have also dealt with retro solutions. You will pay more at retro solutions because their customer service is a lot better but they are usually all the same Chinese stuff with different brands on them. Get 55w if you want the brightest and keep in mind the closer to white the brighter the light. If you get into the blues and purple you are sacrificing the brightness for color. 4500-5000k will be the best light output.

Just wanted to give some input on the HID's. Im pretty sure RECON states "do not run 55w HID" in their headlights. Im sure you could melt the housing. Again not 100% sure on this. I run the 35w - in my stock housing (and i know most or some do not like this- but each their own). I do know that the 2008-2010 RECON headlights lens is a projector only lens (not suitable for HID's)(My father-in-law has them with 35w HID, and can't see sh!t). Im pretty sure that RECON fixed this sense they came out with the 2nd gen Headlights. Just be careful when running the 55w if you do, and im sure someone out their is running 55w HID's so correct me if im wrong.
