NOTTO® SE - Complete HID Conversion Kit

Ok the heck with halogen bulbs. Does anyone have any experience with this conversion kit? good or bad. Would it void my warranty, and why does it come with an optional relay.

Thanks

Check out www.DDMtuning.com They have quality HID kits for a lot cheaper than those in your link. I got my Hi/Lo and fogs for less. Also they come with a Lifetime warranty. I have them in my 09' focus and couldn't be happier.

Focusalaska,
did you purchase the HID Kit Wiring Harness and/or the Error code eliminator or just the kit itself is all i would need? What do they mean by a controller for high/low beams

No need for the wiring kit or error eliminator just the kit. I have the H13 HI/Lo kit. You could just do the H13 low beam only kit, it's your preference. The Hi/Lo kit will come with a wiring harness, the reason for it being you need another power source for the Hi/Lo function. The low beam H13 will not come with a wiring harness, cause you don't need it.

Edit: This should be i the exterior / body forums also. Posting in the right forum will get you more responses.

you may want to double check on that... if these so called retrofit kits cause any damage to the electrical system, lamp housings, or anything else, it's your dime.
kid here just had a ballast short and burn up some factory wiring and cause a small underhood fire. guess who's dime its on to the tune of over 2k? not warranty nor insurance once they both determined it was an illegal aftermarket item installed by the owner that caused it.
But its your dime if you install illegal stuff. he's learning the hard way.

Agreed, besides the fact putting HIDs in a non projector headlamp is bad news for other drivers...yea, I pulled that card out.

Put bixenons in my dad ses and adjusted the lighting and they have just as good a cut off as projectors... Bixenons are the only way to go I don't care what anyone says if you have a single bulb that does both get the bixenon...

This coming from a guy that distributes hids in my area... I do hundreds a year... Some open housings don't accept hids well at all and some like the newer focus have a sweet cut off line because they don't use a closed reflector like most open housings do!

DDMs are great when you get a perfect set sometimes you have problems within the first hour or so but that's what the warranty is for... Their much cheaper then my kits...

Facts are though if it's not osram or Phillips your not going to get the reliability... Candlelight meter is only a couple percent off depending on the kits... My kits are reliable and bright but no matter what your not going to have a bulb and ballast that has the 1-100,000 defect rate of Phillips their the best and most expensive for a reason!
