Default HIDs in my '11

After researching here a bit it looks like hids are a good mod as long as you use the harness on the low beams. What im not finding info on though is what wattage people are using. Im assuming 35w on the fogs and lows, but what about the high beams? Any problem with the 55W? Just for added safety im thinking about adding the harness for the high beams also...cant hurt and its only 12.00 for a little more peace of mind. Im probably going to go with DDM tuning. I also have a RZR sxs and over on the RZR foums the guys say you cant go wrong with the DDM Raptor HIDs. I have a set on the way for the RZR so i thought why not do the truck too...

I would use 35W kits...they are plenty bright and you won't have the wierd colors or heat issues of the 55 watt kits (they can melt smaller housings)...Here is my low/fog install with pics

I have HID extra, not so great customer service for most....but the lights work. DDM is a great option as well!

Did you use the harnesses on the high beams and low beams or just the low beams?

If i go with 35W how much brighter are they than the stock bulbs? Alot? Im just thinking for 10 more bucks i might be further ahead to go with the 55W. Im going to run them on their own harness so im not real worried about flickering.
