Just order the kit with the bulb size you want. It should come complete with ignitors(goes bulb>ignitor>plug), which should plug right in to your original wiring harness. That's how I've done it in the past. Hope that helps some.

Basically, yeah. It was plug n play both times I've done it. Also, a significant amount of bulb plugs are the same, in case you get the wrong ones and need to buy different, separate bulbs. Just be sure to visually verify that they are the same, or you might end up with 2 hid kits and 3 sets of bulbs.(been there)

Key here is to be sure to specify which bulb size you need when ordering, or you may end up wi h1, which seems to be the standard aftermarket bulb size.

I have heard mixed reviews on DDM. Like said before some orders have taken 2 months to be delivered which is crap.

If you want a high quality AC digital ballast (non flickering) at a good price and want it in your hands in 3 days order it from my r6 forum site sponsor.

$55 for a single beam kit, $75 for a dual. He will take care of you if you have an issue but with kits in 6 different cars and bikes I have not had an issue yet. One kit is 1.5 years old!

These are not the cheap ebay Xentec, they are the higher end better ballast versions!

I am actually ordering extra bulbs from him right now, because I want to put 5000k in my new retrofit :)

Ive never had a problem with DDM I had their kit before I retrofitted to Morimoto MiniH1 projectors. I had their raptor kit in my old car when I sold it never had a problem and I current have them in my motorcycle going on 1.5 - 2 years with no problems.

There are two ways to do this:

1.)One way is that you have to purchase a relay harness that has a connector that goes to one of the factory H13 connectors then into the relay which then separates into wires for both ballasts which then you connect to the ballast then you connect the HID bulb to the AMP connectors coming from the ballast (easiest way but you have to buy a H13 relay harness with your H9 HID kit if you are buying them for the Eagle Eye projectors).

2.)Sometimes they don't come with connectors just male spade terminals (like my motorcycle kit), or you pull the pins on the connector it comes with, then you just plug them into the factory connector (H13 in this case) making sure to get the polarity right (just plug them in, connect all of the other connectors, & bulb and test to see if it comes on if it doesn't just swap the spade connectors and re-test if it still doesn't work check all other connections and re-test) then you would have to use some electrical tape to seal up the connection.

Either way its a fairly easy install but that might just be me because I've hooked up so many kits lol. Im working till 5pm CST tomorrow but I might be able to take some pics tomorrow to help out

I would never buy DDM again.

I only run Morimoto ballast and bulbs.

I ordered a DDM kit for my mothers car. Flickering, long warm ups, bulbs would fail to ignite.

I have 2 morimoto kits on my truck, 1 on my car and now 1 on my mothers car.
