    As stated in title I'm looking to replace the yellowish halogen exterior and interior lights to a more clear color in addition to having an overall better lighting output. Any recommendations in SD that offers installation? I live in an apartment complex which does not allow one to work on their car unfortunately and I do not have friends with an available garage. :V

    I see there is a place called DDM that offers some kind of general kit for the 2017+ Civics but it doesn't specify whether they do installations. Any advice from a fellow San Diegan?

    I love DDM tuning. They're pretty great with quality vs price and all their stuff is warrantied. I don't think they do installation but I don't see why you would need someone else to change a lightbulb for you? That hardly counts as working on your car. Besides, you could probably use their parking lot and I'm sure if you asked nicely they'd be more than happy to help out. Not everything they have online is in their walk-in store so I would call to check to see if the one near you has it in stock.

    Thank you for letting me know their stuff is warrantied. Yeah I'll have to speak to the leasing office to see their stance on making a cosmetic change to the car as I agree it's not like I'm changing fluids or pulling the engine out. I appreciate the insight!

    I wasn't aware DDM had a location in san diego? Interesting.

    They're local to me near Huntington Beach, and they do not do installs (to my knowledge). They don't even allow you to work on your car in their parking lot. As for their parts, I've never had an issue, and they are backed by a lifetime warranty.

    If you do decide to work on the car yourself and since your complex doesnt allow you to work on cars, you could grab a simple tool set and go anywhere to install the LED's. It literally took me less than 10 minutes.

    Former DDM manager employee here, LED's are great and come with 2 year warranty. There is 3 stores in San Diego county.

    Vista, Kearny Mesa and Chula Vista.

    You're allowed to work on your car on the parking lots, we don't care. If you ask nicely they'll go help you out. Used to do it all the time. All LED's are in stock at the store, specially those in the picture as they are the newer ones.

    If you have any other question let me know.

    Yeah DDM products have worked well for me. I've had the same Slim HID kit in my CBR for 8+ years now. Only had (1) bulb fail on my previous hatch after 5 years...and that was because of a fender bender where someone clipped the side of my headlight. Havent used their LEDs but I'm sure they are fine.

    Call me cheap, I got my LED bulbs on Amazon, Sealights 6K $49 shipped 2-day shipping. Reason why I went with Sealights on Amazon is because on the bulbs, it says "DOT." As for fogs lights, yes I'm cheap, 6K LED Amazon for $29.00 shipped.
