Default Last HID question.

I am about to order my HID's from DDM Tuning. But I just wanted to ask one last question. Should I get the 35W kit or the 55W kit? I usually get the 35W but I just wanted to get y'alls opinions.

Also, does anyone know if I will need the Error Code Eliminators for my 2008 Ram?

I went with 35w cause I don't want to run the risk of getting too hot...but there are a lot of people with 55w with no issues.

For the 2008 I don't think you do, but not 100%.

Currently running 35s from DDM for my lows, new projectors should be in next week.

So running 35s in the lows and the big boys (55s) in the highs. We will see how she goes!!

Hmm, well the Xentec HID's I got from E-Bay flickered/shook. The DDM Tuning website said the Error Eliminator should fix any flickering. But the E-Bay lights are just terrible, and they shook on my 2005 Chevy Silverado as well when I had it.

I don't know if I should order the Error Code Eliminators to be on the safe side or not... Or a 100 ohm 25W resistor.

Awesome! I am also debating whether or not to get the hi/low bulbs, or just the low bulbs?
People say the hi/low doesn't even make a difference between the two beams.

I am on the DDM Tuning site now. Probably gonna go ahead and order my lights. I think I am just gonna order lows only. They say people have flickering issues with the hi/low. So I am gonna order my lows and fogs with no eliminators or resistors and see how they do. Or maybe I will go ahead and order the Error Code Eliminator. Gosh, I don't know, ha ha.

Very clear on the info, if he is wrong though I am gonna be pissed...lol Ordered mine shipping was a bugger though...for such a small kit..shipping was 13 bucks
