dude i just got a set exactly like that off ebay for 73 shipped for h11's for my moss headlights. and they have a 1yr warranty too.

not that big of a saving really......if this was like 2 years ago when they were still stupidly expensive then maybe but not anymore

I got 2 sets of xentec hid kits from autoluminate on ebay with 2 year warrantee for 62 shipped. Both work excellent. That would be the price to beat. All these "vendors" are selling the same exact stuff just marking it up for profit. One would have to be an idiot to pay more for the same ****.

So the sets you bought had low beams only? And you bought two sets for two different vehicles? And which seller did you buy them from? There is more than one on Ebay selling that brand name currently.

one of my xentec units died and the guy I bought them from (huge store on ebay) was unreachable....those warranties are a joke if they don't bother responding

Mine died too.. though I made the extra effort and tracked the guy down through ebay. Ebay provided me his phone number and address, and it was replaced no problem.

Low beams only. Two sets for two different vehicles. One for my friends charger srt8 and one for my miata. A friend of mine (who referred me to that seller) has had his working on his evo9 for 2 years now. Another has them on his subaru for 1 year already. No problems so far. The sellers name, as I posted earlier, is: "autoluminate".

this product uses alternating current as opposed to those kitswhich are direct current. these will last 3x as long i just sold 2 sets today to people who had their ebay ones die out after 6 months

DDM has had spotty quality lately due to rapid growth of their business. Supposedly they've hired more people now though.

No really, where are those numbers from or did you just make them up?

I'm really asking just to humor you, I already know the answer.

Any proof of this? If you're going to make statements like that you had better have some good proof. Anyone can say "our product is superior to competitors". The ones that prove it get the business
