Default Need help with DDM tuning HID's

Hey guys! Real quick question here.... I am about to order the kit for my MCSS and I was just wondering what I need to order to successfully get all the necessary parts to do the install correctly. 1.) We have H9 or H11 bulbs? 2.) I know I need the error eliminator and what else? 3.) My car is silver, so I don't want a blue bulb to match it, I would like to keep it as white or silver looking as possible; my question is what bulb color should I get?

We have the H11 bulb and you don't need the error eliminator. Some guys buy a wiring harness for peace of mind but I don't think it's necessary. As far as bulb color, IMO 4500k is the whitest in person. I've seen 5000k and it has a very tiny hint of blue, and a lot of guys have confirmed this as well. I think a silver MC would look nice with a little hint of blue, but that's just me lol.

I have 5000s they look good, but I bought 4500s for my wifes car because I wanted pure white. 4500 is the way to go.

Also to reiterate above, 35W no harness necessary, but if you get the 55s which are not needed, you will want the harness. No error codes are caused by these headlights.

I have the ddm h11 35w 6000s. there a bit blue. if you want more white go for the 4000s or the 5000s. same for the foglights. also if you have the money go for the slim ballasts. their much easier to mount.

I agree. That's what I'll be going for: 35W slim ballasts. 4300K-4500K. Harness as well.

So the slim ballasts are more expensive and better why?
