    Don't know what is best, but a gallon milk jug is one of the worst. Seems to break down within a week or so after filling with oil, regardless of temperature. Recycle ASAP.

    And add a tether, so if it pops off, it is not lost, just dangling. There are products designed just for this purpose, but a simple 12" cable tie, or even a strong cord can do the job. Though it...

    I'm pleased with the DDM HIDs, though if I'd seen them before ordering, I might have tried the 4300K instead of the 4500K version. The 4500K is very white and takes some getting used to.
