Installed XenonDepot Kit, Works Great!
I received and installed my XenonDepot H1 4100k kit yesterday...shipped out of Canada early Monday and I got it in Pittsburgh on Tuesday monring via DHL...I think the $20 is fair for this expedited service
Installation was fairly smooth, seating the bulbs and finding/routing to the ground were probably the most difficult steps...Also, I used the two-way tape to mount the ballasts under the headlights, resulting in a tight fit on the passenger side, I may relocate them later when I'm motivated.
After spending a half hour looking for two ground points, I decided to just run some 12 gauge wire from the passenger side ground-wire to the driver's side ground-wire(along the bumper), and then run that to the known ground point on the driver's side strut tower. Aside from that rig, the wiring looks hidden, tied down, and OEM. The xenons worked perfectly when I fired them up for the first time. The 'ballast-buzz' was like music to my ears. No ground problems either, although I may just connect the ground wire to the (-) battery post :).
I took it on a short 3 mile drive around midnight :P...there is so much white light in front of you and off to the sides. The light does not extend any further than halogin bulbs since they are in the low beam lenses, but your entire "low-beam area" is splashed completely with pure white light, the beam cutoff is now blatently defined...great functional mod!!!...this car should have come with HIDs...
