I am going to be getting HIDs for my 2012 Silverado 1500 Lows Highs and Fogs. What do you suggest getting?

I went with 55W 5000K for my lows and 35W 5000k for my fogs,, they have the same color output, but the 55W are a brighter white. I don't like having the blue/purple ghetto junk so i went with something classy.

I just did 35w low beams and was told its not a good idea to do the high beams because there is a 3-5 second delay for the HID's to warm up when switching between high and low beams so you are with out any light long enough that the potential to wreck or hit something is there.
Where did you get the 55w kit/ballasts from? I wanted to go 55w in the low beams but I was told that there are allot of problems with the 55w ballasts?

I get all my HID needs from ddmtuning.com and I've never had any issues with their kits. I got their slim digital ballast on my GTO and I got the regular raptor HID kits on my pick ups.

I purchased mine,35w 5000k low beam from VVME. they were Hella ballasts and i also used a relay kit (which is highly recommended) that was all plug and play. X2 on the high beam unless you do a lot of rural driving as the constant on/ off cycle will shorten the life of bulb and ballast2006 Silverado 1500 5.3L ecsb Z71,afe pro s dry air filter, color matched tailgate handle and bezel,color matched front bow tie, led interior illumination, 5000K HID lows, Black powder coated wheels, Blacked out body side moldings, Rough Country 2.5" level/lift kit, Magnaflow muffler

I agree with Ridyn, I've always purchased my HID's from DDMtuning... I did though, have a problem with my fog light ballasts, they both seemed to go out, at separate times, but they have a life time warranty, so no biggie right? WRONG!!! I can't get through to any customer service agents to get my kits replaced.... Bummer.00 Chevy Tahoe LT, 5.3 4x4
