Joeywhat I doubt it, and I've heard lots of poor reviews regarding DDM. Definitely get a relay/harness. I don't think resistors are required for fogs.

I was just gonna go off DDMtuning like I have in the past, but I've never had a car this new and I'm unsure if I should get a relay or resistor, etc. On the ordering page it says I can add on an error eliminator or adapter cables for like $8-15. Wondering if that's the same as a relay.

Jkrumm I went with the 55 watt ballasts and I could not be happier with them.

Its been mentioned before that you need the bulbs, ballasts, and the auto leveling controls, which you would have found if you searched.

Did you research before spending that kind of money on the housings?

BaconZombie I'm using 35 watt ballasts on my headlights and foglights. 55 watt ballasts shorten bulb life and are usually far too bright. My headlight kit is from Xenonsupply, my foglight kit is from DDMTuning. Minimal issues with both.
