So far from the truth it's not even worth refuting it's just plain wrong headed thinking and factually inaccurate.

I've been using the Race Dash ones for like a year now with no problems. That being said I just ordered a couple of the VibeLights ones and they are a totally different animal. Installed them in a buddies 330ci (his Race Dash ones died) and they worked great.

Anywho if the inverters/ballasts you guys offer really does actually differ from the others, why not post how they are different? All I've ever heard is "they are customized by us for brightness and color" but no more info than that. When someone questions the statement something like the above is posted or something like "buy ours and then see the difference." Why not just explain how they are different? Just my .02 worth.

FYI I ordered my $65 Race Dash angel eye kit on ebay and have been perfectly happy with it for just over a year now. There are even guys on ebay selling this kit now for $43 AFTER shipping. I just ordered a set for my brother in law as a Xmas gift.

forgot about this thread. i posted a link on my install a ways back and have no problems, the stock balasts the predators come with work great. (with a heat sink) sitting on my bench the ballasts got quite warm, but i made my own aluminum brackets to mount them on to dissapate the heat, and after a couple hours of use they are just a normal whatever temp, not even close to getting hot.....my advice is the same. just seal them up, don't use those shitty connectors, solder the wires and keep them mounted on metal with some heatsink compound and make sure they get adequate air flow (never mount them under the light) and they should work great.

Does anyone know what the electrical conversion is that the ballasts need to be? Like what are the specifics of how much they take in and how much they need to put out. Thanks jay

Hey I've tried going on to the web site and also calling the number on Vibelights, but it seems that there is no line to purchase the aluminum ballasts. Does anyone know how I can order them?
