Iím thinking on going with the mini kit http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...2vtq87dqn0s5jg and get all the needed parts (bulbs and ballast, etc) with just one vendor. I know it will exceed the budget as intended in the write-up but I do not trust DDM - to many negative remarks on multiple forums. I also want to get it done in a one stop-shop.
How hard is it to align the lights to the proper aim?
yep you can use any parts you want. and as far as aligning them, i think sillieidiot might have a link on how to align them, i lost the link =/ sorry couldnt post it up. i will try to see if i can find it again
