    Very good write up. Thanks for posting it!! I'm planning on buying the DDM kit and will follow your write up for the install when I get to it.

    Sorry to resurrect an old post but, I was looking to do this same upgrade on my Magna with a VTX headlight. I was wondering if enough of an adjustment could be made so as not to blind oncoming traffic. This seems to be the downside to using HID bulbs with halogen lens.

    AWESOME Writeup. These will be the ones I get now. Bookmarked your writeup and the DDM site.

    Did you buy full size or slim?

    yes, you can.....here is a write up that "the old fool" has done...keep in mind, you will want to remove the bucket to get it down all the way before you start adjusting up. if you adjust it as he has said, then you will get light into the faces....i noticed, that once i lowered it further, i still got the light i needed and it didnt hit others (no one gave me the high beams after than).

    thanks! i believe its the slim...but when i went to purchase it from their site, i did not have an option for that or saw an option for that....are you seeing that on their site now?

    Best mod I've done for under $50!!!

    Driving at night with HID feels like a new experience. I know I'm being seen like a mile away and I can see much farther in front of me and on the sides then before.

    Just got a BRIGHT 6k 35w kit off Amazon, $70 for 2 Hi/Lo bulbs and ballast, not sure if it comes with two relay's but am willing to split it if someone is interested, got to wait for it to get here and I am going to test it all out first.. has 1 YR war, so if anything goes wrong you would know in the first year...
