    Agreed, I was contemplating going with red, but I’m glad I didn’t. And yes I bought the LED from superbrightleds and for some reason they won’t light up. I tried rotating them every which way and no success. Maybe I’ll try again in the future.

    Decided it was time for some HID's. I originally wanted 6000K but DDM Tuning is notorious for overly blue lights so I ended up with 5500K instead and it looks pretty good. It's blue when you first turn it on but after warming up its pure white. The third picture is what it looked like with OEM bulbs, I didn't understand why the passenger side was aimed so high until I looked underneath the hood and had seen the bulb wasn't even rotated in all the way! I adjusted it in the sixth picture and it looks way better.

    So you installed HID's on non projector headlights?

    One of my DDM slim ballasts I bought with an original kit over 10 years ago just burned out a couple months ago. Amazed at the quality and longevity, but that was a long time ago. I know things have changed at DDM since then, but hope you have a good experience. Hope you went with 35w, and be sure the headlights are aimed properly. I recommend a retrofit.

    Did you make an account just to post this?

    Yeah.. I bought their kit way back when I had my Integra and they were really good for the price. And yes, they are 35W, I made sure I aimed the headlights a little lower than stock because of all the glare. I want to do a retrofit in the future but TSX projectors are so damn expensive but worth the money. Also I was lurking on someone else’s thread, could you send me a link to the Facebook group? I deleted mines a long time ago but I’d start it up again if people are posting their Accord’s. It’s super lonely on this forum lol.

    Glad to see this clean OEM machine is still running :) The HID's look great
