Default HID Kit Questions

hey guys so its finally time too install HID's on my car, but i have a couple of questions.

i went on ddmtuning.com and they have killer prices so im definately ordering from them but i need help ordering. First off..

I want to order a pair of 8000k (maybe 10000k) HID's for my headlights.
and
I want to order a pair of 3000k for my cornering lights (that are wired for both too turn on with my headlights.

When i go on the website, what bulb do i need to use for my 06 maxima se?
&
do i need any hid harness/error code eliminators/adapter cables/mounting brackets?

and lastly,
how do i install HID's on my cornering lights? i have them wired too turn on with my headlights, but how would i be able to install an HID kit on them.

Im really confused on what too purchase etc. so please give me some help.

any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance

Default Re: HID Kit Questions

8000k is what i have and i would not go any higher. The light output is good on a clear night and makes the signs and markers on the road glow from a very far distance. But they do not cut through rain/snow/fog very well due to the lack of yellow contrast. Don't get me wrong, you can see but not as far.

Putting HID's in the corning lights, i would not do it. The heat from the bulbs will melt the corning light housing if they are left on for too long. I would go with a front firing LED.

You shouldn't need anything special for the install except a 1" spade drill bit to drill the hole in the back of the headlight and some RTV to seal it. You can drop the bumper and remove the headlight with just a screw driver and socket wrench. A few people run their HID's without a relay harness with no problems but i installed one because i did not want to chance burning my harness. The ballast consume less power while running but can draw up to three times more current when you first turn them on. You can get the mounting brackets if you want but some super sticky velcro or double sided tap will hold them in place. No "bulb out" indicator eliminators are required. The kit should be plug-n-play with either the 9006 connector or simple spade connectors to stick in the 9006 socket.

Default Re: HID Kit Questions

I don't know about hid in the cornering lights, those lights only turn on when you make turns. But as far as the headlights goes, it depends if you have factory hid already or if it is just halogen. I am assuming it is halogen so 9012....is that right everyone? As for temperate I wouldn't go that high because all you will be getting is blue with not much distance, I have 6k heads and 6k fogs and I wouldn't go higher. 6k is straight white with a hint of blue.

Search around my friend. Pretty much all of this has been covered before.

Good luck dude!

Thanks a lot bro for all the info, where can I purchase a front firing LED, the last thing I want to do is melt my cornering light housing

Then no, you can't put HIDs in them. The housings aren't made for that much heat.
