Installed Diode Dynamics HIDs last night
I had a Grand Cherokee before my current Ram and it had HIDs. I guess I got spoiled by them because the halogens in the Ram just weren't cutting it (still don't know why they don't offer HIDs in them). I researched the options a lot and settled on Diode Dynamics and so far have been very impressed with the quality of all the hardware and functionality of the lights. No error codes so far.
I also wanted to get the most accurate before and after pictures that I could since just using a cell phone won't give an accurate difference since it'll adjust the ISO and exposure based on the increased light thus making the HIDs look less bright than they are - and also making the before picture look less yellow. I was big into photography for a while so I know how to set everything manually on my DSLR. The before and after pictures below are taken in the same spot with the same ISO, aperture, exposure, focal length, and white balance. I must have taken 20 photos to get the before photo to as closely match what I was seeing with my eyes as possible. Once I was satisfied with those settings, I used those sames ones for the after photos. IMO, this is the most accurate before/after pictures of these bulbs out there.
