DDM Tuning. Cheap and they work really well. Or you can go through one of the vendors on here. Raul has some nice kits through stealth automotive.

The 4500Ks are white. The 8000K are definitely going to look blue. I bought the 6000K to start with, and even those were too blue for me.

lol. my dad has 35w 6000k and mine are a good bit brighter than his. i'd def say its worth the 10 extra bucks, especially on high beam when the fog lights turn off. but im about to do the fog light wit high beam mod too so its gonna be like the sun coming down the road

ive had them for a couple of weeks now and i still find myself cracking up ar how they light up street signs and everything miles up the road infront of other cars lol

So what do you have to order from DDM to get the HIDs to work with your driving lights (high and low beams) and with the fog lights?
