Rainman, thanks for the detailed write up and pics. Finished installing mine, just have to rethink how to reorganize left side cables to make them less visible...
I've got DDM 5000K 35w HID kit and some LED bulbs from ebay.
Didn't have a chance to see how they perform at night yet, hopefully soon...
Meanwhile here are pics:
I put in a pair of Leds from ebay and there's a error message on the dash. What kind of led running lights did you get? Do you mind posting a link?
Thanks man for the details.
I just finished mine. High beam i don't like though as when you flick it, it doesn't show as much, needs some time to reach its working temp i guess. But overall, a must do.
I got my set from Sportiva on Ebay. Install nearly the same but minor differences made installation easy. for example the base of the HID bulb is metal so i didn't need to fiddle with the clamps.
this is how i did tidy my wires, later i installed some ziplocks.
