HID brand comparison

Hello, I've been searching around the forums and have come across many different brand HIDs such ad ddm, retrosolutions, xenondepot, etc. But I was wondering what are are the different comparisons between the HIDs. I know ddm has cheap kits, but I was wondering if anyone could help me determine which HID kits are the best as well as their price.

DDM Tuning has lifetime warranty but cheap prices, but many members here use it. Not many negative reviews more positives.

Retrosolutions offers lifetime warranty too and comes with everything you want, also they support the true 55w HID kits. They come with a free relay harness or something like that I hear. Retrosolutions is here in the USA.

XenonDepot is almost the same as retrosolutions, basically you're paying more for an HID kit expect superb quality!~ Oh and XenonDepot is in Canada...

It all depends on how deep your pockets are... I have DDM on low beams and raptor for fogs over a year now and no problems yet. Im sure retrosolutions are pbly the best in quality and all that but are also more expensive.

true that... I just got my kit from DDM and love it. It is very easy to install and only took me a little less than an hour. The only thing is that it took 2 week to get my kit because the kit is so cheap, they were on back order.

Retro-solutions offers great kits, and if you use 'accord' at checkout it gives you 10% off.

Customer service is top notch and super fast shipping. I ordered my second kit late Thursday night and had them Monday morning.

Not to say ddm is bad, but you get what you pay for.
