What do y'all use for headlights?

I have some 30w 6000k LED headlights but i feel like they could be brighter. What do y'all recommend for headlights?

How about some 55w HIDs. I got some from DDM Tuning that are great. Cheap HIDs aren't the same.

The ones from DDM Tuning heat up to full brightness really fast and are bright as hell. My eBay HIDs take about 6 seconds to heat up to usability, and aren't as bright even though they're 55w as well

I just disabled my daytime running lights. Otherwise the DRL makes them flash (bad for them). I think they do sell something that stops the flicker though

bend the tab on the fuse so it doesn't make contact to disable the DRL as mentioned

escapefate will become famous soon enough
I have some HID headlights and LED fog lights. Its a lot of good light but the stokc housing is poor at keeping it all on the road, lots of fade off and I am sure I am blinding lower height cars.


most recomended HID kit?

I use dragonledz for my headlights and foglights. Great for visibility and if done correctly won't blind drivers
