Hmm this is the first I've heard of LUXEON Z ES Chips, they're not CREE it seems. I'm gonna have to do some research on these. I'm a bit skeptical on the suggested 4000 lumens. It could be calculated instead of measured. I'll update if I find anything. The headtsink doesn't look that big for how much heat I'd assume they put off.

I look forward to your install! Still trying to figure out which kit I should get myself.
I'm eyeing up the DDM Tuning HID Kit, 55W 4500K, Dual Relay.

You think I'll need the Warning Cancelers with it?
What about the H7 Adapters / Spacers?

definitely, you don't need H7 adapters if you do hi-beams. Not sure if you will need them for H7 low`s....Let me check and try my stuff, I will report thereafter....

In regards to warning cancelers, Ive got 2 sets and they didn't work....wil try morimoto`s now....

clean job...





Tried to install ballast in the same way as Navein did, but found that it won't fit well as ignitors are too short+can-bus also has short wiring...So at the end tied everything up to the same way as I did with the HID in fogs. Simple and easy, no rattles and will stay good.

My thoughts: would be better to get LED or super-halogen bulbs vs. xenon. With LED you will need to get bulbs with flexible tail, so you won't be able to hid it inside the housing closed. From this point, tail will be heated, so will you melt anything or not....you decide. Having installed nightbraker or rally 65w - honestly, after I searched the web, I didn't find any improvements on the road, so my pick was HIDs. I will say it definitely will improve your hi-beam or you have only the last chance which is do a retrofit and replace halogen reflector with small HID projector...
