Do some of you experience any problem with the stock bulb? The lighting is correct but I can definetly be higher don't you think?

My sentra 2002 had better lighting, so I'm looking for an upgrade on that, without puting HID kit on it, as I don't have projectors and it will look really bad and be anoying for other drivers on the road.

What is, from your experience, the best aftermarket bulb?

I have the 6K kit from DDM Tuning in my 08 Nox and 00 Dually.
(Lifetime Warranty on the Bulbs, I have the Slim Ballast kits)

I have a 6K kit in my 72 Blazer also, but from jerks off Evil Bay.
(I didn't know that DDM Tuning had kits for vehicles this old)

My next purchase will be a 6K kit for the Driving lights on Nox.
(Same kit will also come from DDM Tuning, I'm just broke, lol)

Install was all "Plug and Play", but Grill is a B!tch to get out

PS - If they come with Bulb shields do NOT remove them, I get
flashed on the Nox a lot, but on the Dually it's a lot worse due
to NO sheilds. The reason I did that is my lenses are NOT clear.

I will try to get another pic this weekend, Wife's ride and she's
out of town on Business and for some reason she drove it, lol.

Everything comes in the Kit needed to run them, I mean everything.

If you don't pull the DRL you will end up blowing bulbs. They will do
a warranty on the first set, but after that they are like $25 each !

Her lights still come on in Auto just like the Factory installed them.

The kit was around $75 shipped to my door, it does both High/Low

I'd pull my Grill bar and take pic's but they don't stock clips here

I saw a lot of kit with the relay in it, but I don't know if I have to install it, that is my biggest question right now

I am pretty sure my kit had relay's, but I didn't have
to wire them up, like I said mine was plug and play, I
just had to ground it and hook up the 12v to battery.
