For those of you planning to get HIDs, DO get the relay harness. The reason I say this is the stock OEM headlights require around 7 amps to start themselves...whereas with the HIDs it requires excess of 13 amps. This might seem like not much but the lights are drawing power directly from the car electrical system. It will actually overload your system and could short out your wipers. (there is NO fuse for this...it's ALL controlled by the BCM meaning only your dealer can get you hooked up.) If you're not tight with your dealership this will cost you up to $4000! Back to the original reason of posting this...the relay harness draws power directly frm your battery and has more than enough.........A tell tale sign is when you go to power on your lights and the entire car flickers...:eek: I hope I save some people some money

Any particular dealer or brand you suggest? Or are you saying get all this from the dealership?

i talked to the guy at the dealership and they guy says that getting HIDs would be pointless unless you also get the HID housing. as the light will be improperly despursed. it wont be directed in any general dirrection.

So is this true? I mean does HID light shoot all over the place or are they like the normal Light? I have the Factory Projector Headlights and Fog lights, will adding HID mess with the way the Beam shoot?:confused:

What is the opinion of those who have gotten the HIDs is there a specific brand that you suggest or amp?? I just want to make sure that i don't mess this up and who can i get the relay form to prevent the "winking" i just want to know because i'm going to be making a 2200 mile long trip to texas and want to make sure that the shit is right

I just bought HIDs for my 2013 dodge dart. They will tell you on the site what you need for bulb size for the headlights and fogs at www.HIDExtra.com. I like them myself. I bought the 55W 8000k system and love it. The beam is not scattered all over the place. The headlights are 9006 and the fogs are H11 bulbs. You will need to make sure to order a relay and the capacitor. I tried to get away with just the relay and it didn't work. The relay was buzzing like mad. Hope this helps people out. Good luck to the DIY guys.

No this is not true.
I agree with Zimm above. I do not own a dart yet, planning on purchasing one in the spring.

I have been running HIDs on my 2011 Ram since day 1. The light output is night and day compared to the stock lights.

The HIDs look like the light is going everywhere, yes. But thats due to the amount of light you are noticing over your halogens. If your halogens were outputting the same light, you would get the same affect.

I would suggest getting a relay harness (fused) and some error code eliminators. Like said prior in this thread, you can fry your stock wiring.

I've been running kits from ddmtuning.com.

Cost $70 a kit and been running them since day 1, never had to replace a kit due to burnt or malfunctioning equipment.
Only reason I replaced kits, I can't stop upgrading my headlights ha

Looking forward to being part of this forum, been looking around for a few days now.:)

Thanks for the head's up (reps for that)

Thanks for the recommendation. (reps for that) I was considering those, though I was thinking the 35W 6000K kit.

Did you get one of the Canbus kits or did you stay with that "standard"?
