Possibly the mmde relay will be good, but I think it is reasonnable to pay 50$ more and to have it coming with your kit. This way, it is guaranteed, working find and not a pain in the ass to modify somenthing that cost somewhat a lot money but is not working find...

Just my two cents, for all the guys that are planning to buy something.
Xenondepot.com is the way now since we lost some US companies

I know it can be made easely, but I think that it is better to have it all coming together, especially for warranty purpose and unity of the installation.

It's up to you guys to decide.

I think if McCullough decide to cut some dollars for the relay, the have probably cut others in the ballasts and the beams....

That kit looks great. Now that you ahve had it on for a little while, How does it work?

Also can you give us some estimate on the cost of this upgrade? I know that on other cars to upgrade on your new car order is around $1500 or more. Did you fork over this kind of coin for the kit?

I love the kit. The price for the kit was $285 from the GB. I would suggest getting the kit if you do a lot of night time driving and want better lighting overall.

I will not own another car without HIDs installed.

So in order to install these bad boys, you gotta completly remove the entire headlamp assembly from the car to be able to have enough room to work with? and if so.. did you have to adjust the beams at all after the install? im afraid if i try this the beam pattern will look crooked or something afterwards hehe, dont trust myself enough atm to pull this off without trying to find out anything and everything i can about the job :)

For my install I didn't have to remove the housings. However, I did remove a portion of the wheel well splash guards so as to mount the ballast and igniter for each light.

As far as aiming, you shouldn't have to adjust that at all. I've installed my HIDs, removed the housings to paint the bezels and I have never had to re-adjust my headlights because the projectors are contained entirely in the housing.
