So, I bought HID headlights for my Cobalt while it was sitting in the body shop from my accident. They are HID (High Intensity Discharge) lights but i have absolutely no idea on how to install them. they are from Hid Kit Xenon Light Hid Headlight Tattoo Kits CCTV DVR Security Systems Surveillance Cameras Projectors And Obd Scanners There really isn't anyway for me to describe the set up. The set includes: 2 bulb controllers, 2 bulbs, and a rather large tangle of cords attaching to the controller and a power source?? IF ANYONE has ANY experience with installing these lights, your input is beyond appreciated :)

Ive heard nothing but problems about the VVME brand. I run DDM and have no issues at all

I have the 8000k VVME and installed them myself..unfortunately I installed them 2 years ago so I don't quite remember how I did it...just follow the instructions...I remember I took the header panel out and drilled holes in the frame of the bumper bar to attach the ballasts so now u don't see them under my hood...makes it look clean...in the winter I just unhook the bulbs and put my streetglows in

ummm...I drilled holes to attach the regualter and for a ground...hooked the powercord right to the fusebox, and just plugged everything else in...the only prob I've had with them is that once in a while my driverside light goes out...I have to put it in park, shut my auto lights off and then put it back in gear and it'll come back on...its starting to do it alot more as of late, mind u I've had them for 2 years now including 1 full Canadian winter (last winter I took the bulbs out but left everything else in) most of the wires are color coded and will only plug in one way

yeah i had that problem last year with my DDM kit. The ballast was defective though. after a while of doing what your light did, the ballast finally gave out and never worked. I sent it back under warranty, they replaced it, haven't had any flicker or problems since. Real happy with the kit.

I think it may be the autolight function that makes it do that...are urs bi-xenon too? my friend had a set of H.I.Ds with the halogen highbeam and I couldn't stop laughing when he turned them on, they looked like foglights lol

If you have issues due to DRL's, disable the DRLs by pulling the fuse under the hood. The autolamps don't cause issues, the DRLs do.
