Do you have stock ballast or aftermarket. If aftermarket go stock .

TRS may still be better than DDM but nothing beats OEM.
I don't think TRS sells ricer 10k bulbs (had to say it)
There is always color matching issues when you go past 6k.

4300k - 5000k or nothing is my motto.

on the upside DDM will send you new ones. people have had good luck with them. keep trying till you get some that last.


O and just a question. When your lights worked, how were there? were you able to see better than stock?
