you will have to get the extra harness... when i ordered mine thru ddm they came with the "high" harness. that plugs into the ballasts........ just make sure you can get the hi/low in your bulb size.....

Just get a normal kit and make sure when you select bulb size that you get the one that says hi/lo. You shouldn't need anything extra.

Make sure you get the correct wire harness or it will burn out your electrical system. Besides that you should be good!

if your headlamp uses the same bulb for hi and lo, you will need the harness.
i just had the kit installed in my 2010.

If you buy the hi low kit it comes with the harness. I got mine from them but good luck getting them in a reasonable amount of time... I would like to do this :/ every time I call them, on hold for 20 mins. but I have to say in the few weeks i've owned them they are really nice i just hope if they go out the lifetime warranty will be held up. I recently read they are getting out of hid's.

Just speculating, but they might be leaving the HID business due to market saturation, everyone and their brother is selling HID kits.

Which is why I purchased backup 35w and 55w bulbs and ballasts. Purchasing three kits in total has been less expensive than a single kit from some of their competitors. And all kits have lifetime warranties.

Definitely worth it.

i just got mine in (i don't recommend ddm) the high low is nice, because while the hids are alot brighter, they still work the same as regular bulbs, high beams throw the light farther. i don't recommend ddm bc after i placed my order i added them on facebook and found a TON of people complaining...so i hoped that my order would be fine. i got it in like 1.5 weeks installed and received a bad ballast. now i have to wait to get another one. judging by everybody on facebook, its a common problem. but i will say that the one bulb that works is a 55w 5k and its really bright and looks great...but at the same time looks dumb since i only have one.
