Water Proof: Yes
The 55w Can-bus ballasts are a direct replacement for any aftermarket HID ballasts.
Why use Can-bus? In short, when a vehicle comes with a can-bus lighting system, it can cause problems when installing an aftermarket lighting kit, resulting in an error message on the dashboard, flickering, or no power delivery at all. A Can-bus lighting kit will fix that.
In general, we recommend a Canbus kit for Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, Ford, and VW. As these are the vehicles we tend to see that benefit from them. But they can be installed on any vehicle no problem.
If you own a 3rd-4th Gen Ram Truck, a relay harness may be required on top of these if the lights continue to flicker or cause problems.
Note: 55w ballasts will wash out the color of the HID due to an increased power to the bulb (example: an 8000k might look like a 6000k) The added heat can potentially reduce the reflectivity inside housings, in some cases melt smaller plastic housings (which is why they are NOT recommended for fog lights).
