that "ballast" is just an inverter. you can get any cheap cold cathode kit for $10 at a computer store and take the inverters. try that and see if it works. if it doesn't return it.

Not disagreeing with you, but it might depend whether you bought from them initially or not, as opposed to buying them used from another member, but I dont know the details of your case...therefore, not disagreeing with you

I'm using these right now. painted them with engine enamel paint. Swapped out my end connectors with the ones that was on the bad inverter onto these, works very good. $4.50 each FTW!!!

Bimmerblvd thanks for the hook up. It's funny when vendors say one thing on the forums then tell you another on the phone (trying to sell you a whole set)

THANKS AGAIN BIMMERBLVD FOR KEEPIN IT REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Hi Jose,

Who said it was $95? Replacements are $25 per ballast. Which is standard for most companies.

You too, can contact us for replacements... please click on the link in my signature and we can help you out from there.

I can also be reached at 1.888.884.4269. You guys got a question regarding products or pertaining to sales... please don't hesitate to get a hold of me. You can also PM me directly.

Chris
