Is there a difference in light output between the vvme kit, oem valeo kit, and philips hid kit if they are all 4300k? is it a drastic difference? even noticeable side by side?

VVME uses Philips ballasts AFIK. At least I have philips ballasts and assumed I had a VVME kit when I got the car. It's a really shitty kit.

DDM is the only one I would ever consider.

I bought DDM's HID kit recently. I upgraded both the headlamps and the fog lamps to HID, great kit, very easy to use and install. Just make sure you secure those ballast and wires with ZIP ties! The double sided tape isn't so useful.

I've had the vvme for 3 years. and haven't had any problems. i don't know what makes it shitty set up, I mean mine have gone through a lot of hell and it works just as it did before. i recommend them fully.

yeah i have had the vvme kit for 3 years now as well, no problems. just comparing my lights to say a g35s lights, the g35 has much better light output. even compared to my mom's RX, it's shittier. maybe because they are 6000k? or maybe because i have halogen housings?

Why does the light on the left look different from the one on the right?

Because of the angle that the picture was taken from.
