need help, HID burnt

hello guys, heres my problem: i have baught a eyar ago a DDM tuning 35W 600k HID slim ballast kit and yesturday, i guess one of the bulbs burnt out. the problem might be because its not waterproofed corrently. when i installed the HID i had to make a hole in the headlight caps to make the wires pass there. i guess thats the problem with the waterproofing. anyways, i was wondering if it would be better to just buy new HID Bulbs from ebay ( because HID bulbs from ddmtuning are way too expensive including the 32$ shipping) or maybe should i get angel eyes for my 2008 G6 sedan? i have to pick one asap so please help me out. if anybody can help me find some angel eyes for my G6 around 200$ that are tested and worth the money, then i would buy those. if not, then please help me find a good company or a good offert on ebay for some 6000k 35W HID Bulbs that would fit DDM tunning ballasts. THANKS ALOT! this forum is of very much help thanks to all of you

Give DDM a call. They have a lifetime warranty, I dont know what it covers but you may be covered under it. A bit of moisture in the headlight should not really affect the bulb.

If you do need to get new bulbs, I'd pay the extra and get the DDM. The ebay ones arent going to be a whole lot better if not worse than DDMs.

Even if you get angel eyes, your still going to need a new bulb for your headlight. But for which angel eyes to get, the Oracle ones will probably be your best bet. One problem though is that your going to have a hard time opening your headlights since the sealant got changed on them around 07.

Another option would be to get the Eagle Eyes headlights, which have angel eyes and projectors. However that is slightly more money.

theres only one type of eagle eye headlight, he's def a member maybe i spelled it wrong, 55w over 35w would only wash out the color of the light and be brighter, unnecessary for lowbeams, and i've had my HID's for a year now and haven't had a problem- i'm sure it was the water that affected your bulb.

The eagle eye head lights are plug and play, you don't even need to wire the halos. You can use your existing ddm HID ballast but you'll see H7 bulbs for the low beam.

Mods: GT-R exhaust, CRABs O3 w/FPU, 35% tint, 5000K HID lows/fogs, upper/lower recessed grilles, Racingline strut bar, concept darts, white LEDs everywhere
