Also if anyone knows who sells the DRL cancelling harness for plug n play app. thanks guys

thanks man, i was looking at ddm actually, what kit did you get? they have a "raptor HID kit" but i was looking for something with more of a slim ballast. did you get, or do they have a harness for the drl? I see they have the error code eliminator but i dont know if that will solve the drl flickering or not

ddm customer service is awful based on my experience. I ordered 4 HID kits for customers at the dealership before christmas. I got an email that the order was received but never one that it was shipped

after a week I called and that's when they decided to tell me they were busy catching up on orders from the holidays (backorder maybe?). I wasn't annoyed that I had to wait, I would just like to know in the first place

but their HID kits are stupidly cheap and work fine so, another vote for DDM. I would call first to make sure they have what you want when you order so you don't have to sit there waiting

theres been talk about DDMtuning are gonna stop selling hid kits, right now all the have is raptor which are supposedly old hid kits, and stopped selling the ddm slim...and apparently 4300/5k are the same bulb, 6k/8k are the same bulb and 10/12k are the same bulb ....i read a artcile about this that i found...anyways im not saying not to get it cause i bought 5+ hid kits from them cause its cheap and if its blows ill just buy another

to cancel out the DRL you should get the jrox custom relay kit. it works flawlessly.

How long ago? They are 59.99 now. The website says...
1 x Low Beam
1 x High Beam
Is "1 x" for both lights, left and right?

No problems with flickering or anything else? Easy install?
