Default DDM Tuning Question

When ordering from DDM Tuning the ordering process has some options that I am not familiar with.

Do we need the HID Harness, Error Eliminator, Adaptor Cables or Mounting Brackets?

I would like to buy this weekend for headlights and fogs.

Thank s to everyone for the help in advance.

* Are you doing the stock bulb size? If yes, you don't need an adapter cable
* Probably don't need the HID harness as the only option is dual in/dual out
* No error eliminator needed for our cars
* Mounting brackets wouldn't be a bad idea, but not mandatory

Would there be a reason to do a size other than stock?

thanks you for the info.

Yes, if you do a retrofit, meaning if you changed your projector lenses.

Use caution. Their kits are from China and they drop ship from there. It took almost two weeks to get my last one and the box was absolutely mangled when it showed up

Quit that BS about oh it's from China, it's not well made BS. Babies are the only thing not made in China nowadays. I've had my DDM Tuning HID's for over a year and NOT ONCE did it give me any problem. Besides it's lifetime warranty, and you have 30 days to return the product if you don't like it. I don't believe in being a sucka for high prices thinking when it's expensive it's well made BS.

I would get the wiring harness. I've read alot about headlight harness burning out without the use of one because of the amount of electricity it takes to power then up.

I just got my HID kit from DDMTuning, it's my 3rd kit and I haven't had one problem with mine over the years. Took less than 5 mins to install both sides.

I have had my "China", HIDs for almost a year on these bulbs, ballasts are 4 years strong. Just don't touch the bulb during installation, by buddy kept going thru them on his silverado on his last set I had him show me how he out them in.... Fingers all over them. -____- also I do not shut my car off with the HIDs on. Whether it has significance to their life span? Idk, but 9$ for bulbs and 24$ for ballasts seems legit to me. But maybe I'm just a lucky one.

I too would like to vouch for DDM tuning. They are indeed shipped from China and it does have a longer than desired shipping time. That being said, a lot of that wait anxiety likely had to do with me being impatient as well as excitement to install them. However, every single one of my cars has a DDM tuning kit installed on it. There have been 0 problems. Even if there ever was an issue, 100% lifetime warranty.

Like I said last night my dude. Get the kit and be done with it. Please run a relay harness though. Text me if you need anything.
