For anyone else thinking of joining up, the LAST DAY TO SUBMIT AN ORDER IS TOMORROW, Friday April 19th!!
Sorry to anyone who didn't get in on time, but this group buy opportunity is now over.
Thanks to everyone who participated and stuck with it, and also to those of you who jumped in at the last minute. If anyone is interested, keep an eye on this vendor on eBay as they are currently developing LED tail lights for our cars. I'm not a big LED guy myself, but depending on how they look, I might be interested in starting up another GB with them. :)
Just an update - received confirmation today that my item has been delivered. I can't pick it up til Monday (live in Canada, use a parcel pick up store in Michigan for a US shipping address), but its definitely been delivered. :)
Mine were delivered today, and I got them in. They look like they could be an OEM part. I think the light pattern is actually a bit better than my OEM ones. They definitely have less chips than my OEM ones. :)
In the third pic, you can see a spot of light above the cut off, I'm not sure what's going on there.
I left the amber incandescent bulb in the side marker for now. There was a pair of LED 194 bulbs included, ended up using them to replace the triangle lights on the headlights since I could reach it and one of my old LEDs was burnt out.
I left the included amber DRL/turn signal.
I installed my DDM 4500k 35w fogs.
Looks good! If u get a chance, I'd like to see a pic of the DRLs alone. Wonder about bulbs for these that might come close to matching headlight colour ... Given the type of bulb tho, the best I could do was a set of sylvania Silverstars. We'll see about those...
I'll see if I can grab a pic when I get home.
Remember that the DRL and the turn signal use the same bulb. I left the amber bulb for now since I'm not a fan of white bulbs for blinkers.
The bulb is a dual filament 3157, but there are only two wires on the plug. Wish that they would have wired the DRL and blinker separately.
Yeah, a dual filament usually does off/on/bright. Like our brake lights.
However the stock wiring for the DRL only has two wires, which only allows for off/on.
What exactly did you order from DDM Tuning? There are several options; looking for some guidance...thanks.
From the drop down menus:
2. H10 (fog light).
3. I use 6000K (stock low beam is 4300).
4. I did not need any HID (relay) harness or brackets or adapter cables.
I also replaced the low beam bulb with 6000K D1S bulbs and I installed the same kit above for the high beams (9005 bulb). My V did not need any relay harnesses to light the bulbs, my fiance's Grand Cherokee needs relay harnesses for fogs, lows and high beams. Some cars wiring system just can't handle the initial juice required for the initial light off of the bulbs.
Hey Wesh8398 I've always heard 4300K for the stock Low Beams.
I have 35W H10 4500K from DDM in my fogs and they are a bit more blue than the low beams.
My bad. You are correct, stock is 4300K. I corrected above.
Mine was delivered Saturday.
I have not installed them; I'll be using either regular clear bulbs or amber mirror bulbs for turn signal. DRL has been disabled. I'll also use yellow bulbs for the fogs.
