I'm not disagreeing with this, the top manufacturers are definitely better than the Chinese junk. But to get that stuff, you have to buy them from OEM sources, and pay OEM prices.

What I'm saying is that when you compare aftermarket kits amongst themselves, they're all the same, with different branding on them. I've been around a LOT of these kits, and they're all made with the same stuff, the only minor differences is in packaging and then eventually resellers.

FWIW - the cheaper HID kits I've had have outperformed and outlasted the more expensive ones I and my friends have used. Compare a DDM kit to a XenonDepot one and you'll find it's the same damn thing.

Personally, I'd get a cheap kit, and then splurge on nicer projectors and/or an OEM bulb.
