It might be close to the same amount if you just ordered the retrofit kit instead of the projectors from morimoto and HIDs from DDM.

You will probably need the Morimoto relay kit for the projectors it has the hi/low connectors for the projectors.

You might be able to get away using the DDM H13 hi/low harness but the hi/low connectors will be different so you will need to modify it to work (I had the hi/low ddm harness when I had hids in the stock housings so I know the connectors will be different)
You are right, they are about the same with the morimoto bulbs. I woul have to assume they are better quality than the DDM's. Would you go with 3five bulbs or would you recommend upgrading to the XB35's for $30 more? If it makes a difference I am going with 6k

I kinda want to get different shrouds as well, would the MC-R fit?

^^Also with those shrouds will you still get the halo (dots) around the projector lamp or do you have to pay more for that option?
I think you would have to get the Morimoto CCFL kit. Is that built in or is it something that requires extra wiring?

This is what the cart looks like so far... Am I doing it right?
