I have one, only issue, the highs and lows are reversed because they sent me a 9004/7 kit but for the price cannot really argue. There is a way to reverse to work like normal, just have to get with a friend who knows how to go about it.

its a bulb, but its a 9004/7. To avoid this issue I would maybe call and ask that if you order their kit that you get 9007s and nothing else. I would of done this myself BUT it was a x-mas gift. It bugs me pretty good as I have fogs too and cannot use them except during not dark but not a lot of daylight times(morn, early night) or just as driving lights.

other than that their kits are pretty good, roommate has them and no problems besides one fog light going green and no the yellow he wanted.

True, but my friend has them in his 05 but he has 8000k and they have been in his car for 3 years and still work fine with no issues. I just wanted to see yalls input on the brand to see if any issues arise. They also have lifetime warranty too.

You switched the pins on the connector when installing them - 9004 has the same blue connectors as 9007 - but two of the pins swap between them. Call DDM and they'll tell you which ones.

Mine were great until a drive-thru car wash fried them - but they do have a lifetime warranty. Filed a claim with them, sent the ballasts back and they sent out new ones, no problem, no questions asked.

every hid dealer will do that in laziness with the 9004/9007, but what i have done is specifically request in the notes that the connector be PREPINNED for 9007, its worked perfect 3 times now. Used to be a big PITA because i broke a couple of them when trying to swap pins.

DDM is a good company though, i remember a few years ago when they got big, they were considered the best HID for the money, and probably still are. Ive gotten friends several sets, even did a 9007 on my buddys mothers mustang 3 years ago and still works like brand new never had an issue or anything. And i think it was $80 or so for a bixenon kit.
