Do you have a HID kit? Because otherwise you can't use those bulbs.

No you don't need an HID kit for those. They are simple replacement lights
And I highly suggest not getting them because before I got my DDM HID's I tried a bunch of those lights and they are all the same or Darker then Stock and there is almost no blue to them at all.
The blue on the bulb actually takes light away from the output.
Check DDM out they may be backordered and you might have to wait a bit for them but they are well worth the wait

In the pic the Bulbs you want are on your right and the DDM's are on your left
And the DDM's haven't even warmed up yet

The item description says HID bulbs, am I missing something?

The buyer mislabeled it, they are just H7 bulbs that are filled with a different inert gas than halogen for example making them more blue. I would also suggest just getting the HID kit from DDM tuning, its 55 after shipping but worth every penny

False advertising lol.

It has a Xenon HID Look (or so they say) Due to the bulb having the blue film on it (which actually takes light output away, making them less bright the stock).

But as you can see in the picture there is a filament in the bulb.
True HID's have Xenon gas inside instead of a filament.

So is ddm tuning the best brand? I have seen a lot of hid kits also on eBay. Are they just junk on eBay or what?

Ebay is a hit or miss on HID's.
DDMtuning I think has the best HID's for the price hands down.
Get the slim ballast kit if your getting them, they just re-stocked them recently.

If you are willing to wait 3+ weeks for the product with no gaurantee that it will even come then...then yea order your ddm HIDS now. PAY WITH PAYPAL though.

That way if you don't have them 45 days after payment then you can make a complaint.
