Shitty HIDs to NOT BUY

So I decided to stupidly believe everything said in this ebayers description. 2% failure rate, 2 year warranty, Cheap $35.00 price. These HID's sucked...big time! I installed them, they took a good 15 seconds to warm up, wouldnt even turn on with out the car on. Also, the passenger side beam would randomly go out. After a long days use it wouldnt even fire. I had a relay on them too. SO, id say stay away from ebay user xenonfactoryonline As of now, I sent the HID's back and Im out $8 for shipping. Lesson learned. I bought some ddms but time will tell how those work out. Fingers crossed!

you get what you pay for from ebay. however if you need cheap mide in china stuff, where quality is irrelevant, than its great.

I have a $40 set of HID that work fine for me. so maybe im lucky.

I have heard this so many times, then google ddmtuning hid reviews, and all kinds of problems pop up. I think its hit and miss. If you guys want good reliable cheap hid kits, Retrosolutions.com has an economy line for around $55 shipped for halogen high and xenon low.
