For online purchases, you must obtain a Return Merchandise
Authorization (RMA) number from DDM Tuning before shipping any item(s) to us.
Please do NOT ship anything to DDM Tuning without first obtaining an RMA
number; all shipments without an RMA number will be returned to the sender. To
obtain an RMA number and further instructions, please contact us ONLINE. To expedite the warranty exchange process for HID
kits, before contacting us, please trouble-shoot to determine if the failure is
due to a faulty bulb, ballast or harness. Replacement parts will be shipped to
the customer after DDM Tuning receives and tests the faulty item(s). Sorry, but
we will not exchange the defective part for a different part (e.g.,
if you return 5000K bulbs under warranty, we will not exchange them for 6000K
bulbs). For details regarding the shipping for a Warranty exchange, please see
the Shipping section below.
For walk-in purchases, please bring the faulty item(s) to
