I've been thinking about do an HID kit install. Also been looking at the Kensun 35W 5000k kit, would you guys recommend 35W or 55W? Also what do I do about the dust cap?
35W should be plenty, especially if you have fog lights. I switched out my halogens with Kensun 35W 4300K bulbs and there is a lot more foreground light than you'd expect, even though the headlight projectors are meant for halogen bulbs. When I turn on the fog lights, it's a wall of light in front of my RAV4.I've been thinking about do an HID kit install.

DRLs are on the high beam, they don't impact the projectors.
I have a 2016 and the drl use the projector/low beam but with a halogen bulb. Even with halogen turning on the headlights only makes it the slightest bit brighter from the drl. I just wonder how the hid would react to the quick current changes between settingsDRLs are on the high beam, they don't impact the projectors.
HID can not be used on the high beams with DRL enabled.
This may be different on the '16.
My Corolla runs the DRLs on the projectors (LED)... and honestly there is very little difference in the beam.
Yes, I am using the 5000k/35W set on both high and low beam lights.Which kit from Ddm tuning did you use? Did you use the 29.99 kit?
I disabled the DRL's using the head unit inside car settings.
Seriously, go with a Morimoto system from Theretrofitsource.Hows the brightness of the system on low beam? Do they take long to come to full brightness?(I read a few bad things about DDM Tuning but I dont wanna let that distract me)
They take 2-3 seconds to warm up. I'll post a video later tonight if I have time.Hows the brightness of the system on low beam? Do they take long to come to full brightness?(I read a few bad things about DDM Tuning but I dont wanna let that distract me)
Sorry this took so long, but here's the video! I turn the headlights off about a second after they reach full brightness. I find them to acceptably bright for driving after about 3 seconds, and just let them continue to warm up after that point:
I have been considering these kinds of systems. Do you know if well known reliable companies that make leds? Or where to find the Toyota systems?I honestly don't know on the newer, higher quality OEM systems.
When I was using HID for scuba lighting, if you didn't leave it on for 15-20 minutes, AND didn't also leave it off for at least 10, they would develop brown spots on the inside of the gas envelope that would eventually cause problems, as well as lead to hard light-off.
Cheaper aftermarket systems may still have the same problem.
Honestly, I would look at the LED systems on the hybrid and Corolla and seriously consider going with those.
HID are slowly going the way of sealed beams.
