    So I have always ran HELLA glass lens , very very good light focus, & for the last 8 years or more I've had HID/ ballast system from DDM Tuning, great products & service & with a Life Time Warranty.
    I had 3 problems with one side light not coming on than the other side . I have 2 complete light sets so I could just change out & send in for testing & replacement.
    I decided too change to their LED system, only a two year warranty but should be trouble free, a bit brighter & still have high & low beams!
    DDM Tuning: HID and LED Lighting this is what I have now, with the 55 watt bulbs

    Pulled the HID system out today & installed the new LED system, way fewer parts & just plugs in.
    Have to call the supplier tomorrow as have no high beam indicator. All my dash lights are LED.
    With the HID system, which had only one 3 pong plug like the stock one I had to install a diode into 2 of the female pong connectors to have it work.
    The LED system has 2 3 pong connectors that plug into the stock plug!
    High & low beams work fine ,adjusted the lights will see at night on the road if needs more!
    Didn't take a photo of the diode, which is soldered beween 2 space connectors that plug into the stock drivers side 3 pong plug.
    I may be offering these 2 complete HID systems for sale also I have around 3 sets of high output H4 bulb sets just sitting on my parts self.
    I will ask the service tech tomorrow if the life time warry is transferable!
