Hids for head lights?

Since there are the outside bulbs then there Are the 2 inside bulbs that stay on when your lights are on, how do I make those hid too or make them turn off?

I don\'t want 6,000k head lights then the little bulbs beside it are always blue...

I'm not sure which bulb you are trying to buy but you can replace practically any light with an HID these days.

I'm trying to change the headlights but that's not the problem..

The daytime running lights turn on when headlights are on, I don't wAnt them to come on because it is orange and not white / blue like my headlight will be

Also I have high-performance bulbs - balast but I'm wondering if I can use ddm tuning bulbs to try out colors .. There's is a lot cheaper

Basically can I use ddm tubing bulbs with high-performance bulb.com balast

If you want to try the DDM tuning bulbs feel free. I dont know the quality of those but it should do what you need to do for testing. The magic in error free operation is in the ballast, but their is higher quality bulbs and lesser quality bulbs out their.

The only reason is because they are only $15 a pair and I could test which Color I like the best

Just didn't know if they had different ballast plugs or something...

Thanks a lot Jeff!
