Unless the DRL are running off the highs, you will burn the ballast. I've had a HID kit installed on my05 for 4 years without having been stopped once for any light issues. For those who installed the kits, did any of joy disable your DRL's??

After reading everyone's post, I finally got a pair of SharpHID 35W 5000k, but I have a question regarding the way the lights turn on. I was watching a video on their website and I was wondering if all the lights function like the OEM lights, or will this kit override some of the existing lighting functions (ie daylight driving, fog, highbeam) Do I use the standard light switch to turn on my HID, or do I have to install a separate switch?

The lights should operate just as OEM ones do. The kits and battery harness do not modify the DRL settings or anything else on the vehicle. You use the standard headlight switch. The kits are plug and play on these vehicles.

Did anyone have to adjust their headlights to compensate for the HID? Of was the height okay? Mine seems a bit high, unless I'm just not that use to it...

So i'm about to buy the kit from SharpHID but I'm confused as to which one to get.

There's the
SharpHID HID D1S/R Kit

and then there's the
DDM Slim kits which is waaaaay cheaper

Is there a reason for this?

I have an 08 WRX Wagon

the sharp and DDM kits are the same thing, but don't do it unless you have proper retrofitted housings or else you'll have terrible glare

But the Sharp ones are $200 and it says D1s/D1r which I have no clue what that means yet. I assume its the type of housing?

Also I read above from others in this posting who have added these kits to the stock projector housing and no glare.

your looking at the wrong sharp kit for your application you need the H11 kit for lows and if you want highs use the 9005

Yes but you only need to buy 1 kit for high beams and one kit for low beams so it should only cost 100 total, and for your housings you need to order the H11 Kit for low beams and the 9005 kit for high beams

Oh yea I get that,
I was just curious what the D1S/R were? I figured that I had to buy the DDM kit.

jhmason is more helpful than not
I was wanting to try this kit out Morimoto Retro-Quik System - Complete Retrofit Kits from The Retrofit Source Inc, as I have a 2000 Celica and currently running a 5k 55w DDM for lows. Has anyone tried these out? Reason I'm wanting a retro kit is because of the glare. Also as a side note, I've never had a problem with melting or discoloring of my headlights or fogs (35W 3.5ks).
