I'm Confused

Since I now have to commute in the dark several days a week, and boy does the stock lighting on the LT SUCK, I'm looking at an HID upgrade. Is there anyone that can tell me why the HID kit from Xenon depot Xenon depot kit costs over 6 times as much as the one from DDM tuning DDM Tuning kit? Has anyone on here had trouble with the DDM tuning kit? I have a hard time believing the Xenon depot kit is worth that much more. Any help is appreciated.

When I bought my LT (used) it had the Xenon HID low beam on it. Worked great. This summer the ballast went, so I ordered the DDM. Works just as good, and for about the price of a Silver Star bulb. Last night coming home from a 481 mile jaunt, I ended up with a flashing war with a couple of drivers. I won. I guess they didn't believe my first flash. I also got the high beam one, but I'm waiting on the weather to sour before I install it.
