How durable are your HID Kits? We'll show you how tough ours are.
This video demonstrates the strength and durability of KASA Lighting HID Kit ballasts. A 4,000+ lb. SUV runs over the HID ballast while it's on and doesn't affect the HID output. It doesn't even faze the HID Kit! While the casing for the ballast is slightly indented, the operation of the HID kit isn't effected and even remains sealed.

Morimoto vs. Philips D2S HID Headlight Bulb Comparison from TheRetrofitSource.com
Morimoto vs. Philips light bulbs: an overview of the similarities,
differences, and a performance stress test. The equipment shown is the
Morimoto 5000K D2S 35w bulb on the left, and the Philips 85122+ 35w D2S
bulb on the right, both powered by the Morimoto 35w digital ballasts from
TRS. This video helps to illustrate that cost does not always evenly equate
to quality, so whereas the Philips bulbs are very high quality, the
Morimoto units for half the price offer better value.
How to Install an HID Kit from Beginning to End
These are step-by-step instructions on how to install an HID Kit. This
video covers what to check for when you receive your HID Kit, how to
properly disconnect your OEM Headlights prior to install, disconnect your
OEM halogens, wire the HID Kit harness to the factory headlight harness
without cutting or splicing any wires, securely mount the HID ballasts and
shows a HID Kit installed and fully functional.
Xenon-Vision Bi-Xenon HID Install
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. There is NO need to disable the Daytime Running Light (DRL) module if
you have the Bi-Xenon HID kit. The reason being that the DRLs will run off
the low beam and will not flicker as I initially thought. If you have the
non-Bi-Xenon (no HID hi-beam), then you WILL have to disable the DRLs (from
what I understand).
2. If you happened to have disable the DRLs, it is likely that your
interior dome light will not work, as was my experience. No idea why the
DRL module is connected to the dome light but I'm not a Toyota engineer.
3. There are two things that look like grounding wires in the kit ... they
actually are not. They are connected to the battery terminals. The wire
coming from the two fuses go to the POSITIVE terminal while the wire coming
off the control unit go to the NEGATIVE terminal. I unscrewed the nut that
helps tighten the clamp around the battery and then placed the wire in
between the clamp and the nut.
4. The clips only fit one way except for the one on the ballast. You will
see in the video how they should connect but the red wire should go to the
5. There is a metal bar in the front of the car with holes in it. Run the
wiring through that to ensure that the wires don't melt on the radiator or
get caught in the fan (that would be bad news!).
6. Lay your wires out to get a sense of how things connect together.
7. It is normal to have one of the original headlight wiring harness not
All in all, the install is very easy. I did it in about an hour and a half
but if I knew what I just wrote above, it probably would have taken 30
Hope this help anyone that is installing the Bi-Xenon kit in their Yaris!
If you have any questions, please quote this post and I will do my best to
answer them for you. Cheers

Where to install HID's including ballast
UPDATE: HID's are still working 100% for now over 2 years!!..not a single
problem. thanks ebay and ebay store "customledlights" and the HID brand
name "euroeffects" Their website is www.euroeffects.net. also note: you
need a relay for a 2007 dodge ram 219-805-1467. its the tech support number
for the store i got the HID's from. they relay kit is all plug-n-play
and cost around $30. (you must need a relay for the H13 bulbs like on the
dodge rams. and should have a relay on most aftermarket assecories you buy
for your vehicle). hopes this helps

35w 5000k HID test mazda6
**I DO NOT OWN ANY MUSIC**
I purchased these hids (35w 5000k) for the Mazdarati around June 2010 from
DDM and have had no problems except for a ballast going out 1 time which
was replaced for free under warranty.
These are in the stock projectors, I haven't been flashed once.

6000K vs 8000K HID conversion headlight kit illumination comparison
Here is a direct comparison of HID light output. On the left is a 6000K kit
and on the right is an 8000K kit. It takes a little while after the gas is
flickered on to reach the correct temperature. In this video, the steady
color is reached around 0:38; the 6000K being a crystal white, while the
8000K possessing a subtle blue hue. At around 0:31 the stock halogen high
beams were turned on in order to compare the original stock color
(yellowish hue). Get these kits for competitive pricing at
