Please tell me where to buy this locally

Hey guys I was wondering if any one knew where I could buy wire taps for installing angel eyes.
Here is what I believe I need
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...ource=googleps
I ordered the weisslicht led angel eyes and be warned they DO NOT COME WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
The a$$ hole at jlevis sw told me I could buy them at home depot but guess what they didnt have it. I have also checked
Lowes
Radio Shack
Autozone
Hobby Lobby
I am located in Raleigh NC and I was hoping to install this weekend which is why im asking
Thanks for any help

Ill check again Actually there isnt a frys around here i forgot about them(definitely a good suggestion). they have one in my home town but not one here.(this may be a dumb question) You say you always get them does that mean youve bought them somewhat recently or multiple times in the past at radio shack?

Wow, you called them *******s because you can't find simple quick-taps or alligator taps for your angel eye install? Pretty low, but I guess that's where the e46 owner stigma comes from. We're all a bunch of prissy douchebags.

I have bought them at many different locations over the years, in multiple states. its a common thing just make sure you look in the right place.

look infinite the reason I call them that is because the guy I spoke with did not treat me with any respect and half the reason I bought this kit is because I believed it included everything i needed for installation. Besides since when has plug and play meant go buy something else at the store. Also if there such a simple thing to get why not just include it in the kit answer me that.

How about instead of crying about it, go out and actually search for the taps? It's not too hard to find, like others have mentioned. Would you like someone to hold your hand or are you too busy twisting your panties into a bunch?

Man I am not going to get into some pathetic argument on a forum with you if it makes you feel better about your self you win. I am just stating my opinion about the situation and looking for advice that you obviously can not deliver.

Hint: I gave you help. I told you what they're called. Everyone else has already stated the obvious places to look for them, yourself included.

I'm in the same situation as you OP haha I cannot find this and I have looked in the same places posted above so I can back you that they don't have it, but then a again every home depot, radio shack, etc is different with what they carry.. I am actually gonna go to frys electronics now and I will let you know if they have some.. (if you haven't already found them)
