LED's are not what you want for head lights or fog lights etc. They suck on range and will not give you the output you want! If you want the best bet are HID's!

HID's are not crazy expensive!! DDMtuning has good prices to consider!! Here is a link

http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DDM-HID-Kit-Slim-Ballast-35W-or-55W

on sale also for $35 which is a great deal, that with a harness and shipping looking at maybe $60 or so? They look awesome also and will give you soo much more light. Just one thing is make sure they are aimed right so you don't see fingers or red and blue lights behind you :thumbsup:

Not sure on your state law but I know mine doesn't allow blue fogs so look up your laws and make sure of it

Lmao @ blue fogs. No rice here man! I'm going with 35w for fogs and lows and 6000k temp I might go with 5000k I want white. Stay away from 55w unless you want to see melted plastic.

They will be brighter, but not to bust your nuts but I don't really hear too many good things about that brand. People on here and other sites have had problems. Could be good for you so maybe its just your luck in a way for it idk

cant wait to see them on :thumbsup:

I was looking at LED's for the fogs but performance looks to be terrible no matter brand. Seems to be something to do for appearance only. I went with VVME 5000k HID kits for lows and fogs. They've been installed almost a year now and no issues. They do have a slight blue cast for the first 30-60 secs until they really warm up, then its a pure white. If I had my time back I might go with 4300k, as I didn't want much of a color change over stock I just wanted higher output. And 4300k would perfectly match the Sylvania Ultrastars in my highs.

Older Xentecs weren't so bad, but they were also $80. I had a set and they worked fine, though they still aren't as good as my Morimoto set right next to them.

The newer Xentecs are cheaper, and crappier, for sure.

Xentec is improving. But with the supplier I use from CA if a ballast goes out, he replaces it with in 3-4 days no questions and I usually have extras on hand to give/send to people who buy from me. The ballast is the only thing that may go bad and of all the sets I've sold it might be 10%. I don't hear anything good about DDM customer service-takes 3 weeks to get a replacement??
