    Exactly what I was looking for. Did you go 6k or 8k?

    I got the DDM slim ballast kit from one of the venders here but I don't remember who. I had them for about 2 years.

    Did you already have stock HIDs or did you just pop them in the Halogen housing?

    If you are going to tint the headlights. I would suggest that you go with lower kelvin temperature for more actual light output. 6-8k is useless, especially if you are going to tint over the lens. I would go with a 4300-5k...... Once again, more color is useless when it comes to hid's.
