Aight, man, so where are the pics???

I did put HIDs in my wife's Odyssey because the stockers suck worse than the Z's... Didn't realize it was so plug'n'play, tho a bit more complicated w. hi/lo beams on the Ody as there is a 3rd box requiring battery hook-up that controls the plunger in the hi/low HID bulb asm and they are another $40 more.

Wife loves them, they are pretty intense, and do make the lines & signs glow!

I liked the looks of it, the connectors are water-tight, installation was very easy, and the bump in light quality and output is awesome.

Time will tell if it's reliable, but many folks on tt.net have bought from DDM Tuning.

They've gotten a lot cheaper since I bought mine. Sad

What's amazing is when you are driving down a long, dark road with the low (HID) beams on and you switch over to the stock high beams. Everything turns to gold! The color temp difference is dramatic.

I'm wondering if there's a way to keep the low (HID) beams on when you turn on your high beams so that they are additive, rather than switching back & forth. I hate cycling the HIDs when I want to briefly turn on my high beams...

{Wow, I just noticed this is my post # 666}
