I know I can but I didn't read any rule saying he has to so I was just urging him to do so.

There is no rule, but 49er has done it many times.

Thanks for the heads up, I will try it out.

I still have more mods to do so that will be a good place to share.

Sorry for the delay on the HID thing. Here you go:

Previously I've tried those 100 ebay kits and they would do nothing but set off my headlight malfuction sensor and flicker on and off. The tech at the shop suggested the setup I am running now which include resistors and a connection that links the left and right headlight to each other.

Since he installed that kit for me its been perfect with no issues. We sell that same kit installed for $275.00. Not too bad I think.

Did you use relays? That seems to solve the problem you're describing if set-up correctly.

No I didn't, not with the first kit. The cheaper kit didn't come with anything additional just the ballast and bulbs.
