HID's

My son just asked my what I wanted for x-mas (thought he was done shopping already). Ive been knocking around the idea of getting a set of HID's. I did the forum search. And it looks like the DDM Hi/Low/fog light kit is the favorite. Question is. Has anyone had any issues with longevity or installation? Do the fog lights come as a R/R for the oem's? Should I get the 55w or the 35w. And what K rating would be best. I do a lot off offroad night driving in the winter so brightness is my main concern and I dont realy care about on coming traffic as I rarely have any.

Thanks guys.

Chris

Alright. Bit the bullet. Ordered Hi/Lo 55w 6k HID's and 35w 6k fog's from DDM. Now all I need is somewhere warm to install them.

Lets just say not quite stock.

What did that whole kit cost if you don't mind and where did you get it from?

Thanks.
