Did they throw a light bulb warning? Been looking at retrofitting some projectors as well, but cant figure out whether i need resistors, canbus kit etc?

I've been looking at these since they're local and offers life time warranty on their parts http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/Proj-D2S-V2

Alot of patience... I had a retro fit done and they didn't cut the the headlight they were able to open then headlights from the lense but they wouldn't say how they did it. Needless to say when I received the retro fit quality wasn't great so I returned my lights got a refund and bought osrams headlights. I can say when I received them though there was no cutting done. The headlights were oem halogens to.

My kit came with a canbus harness, so there aren't any warnings from the hid's. Not sure about the quality of ddm projectors but I had ddm d2s bulbs in my mkv and these Morimoto xb bulbs have a significantly brighter and more even light output.
