I paid $135 with shipping and to install them is not to bad mostly just reading instructions and I did ask slimcubby some info to Im not to good at electrical. But with his help I will beable to perform with no problem. Its a direct plug in set up with a couple of mountning screws to hold the ballasts in or double sided tape. I will use the screw setup more solid I think.

hids

I purchased most of my conversion kit from Ebay. Ranging from 75.00 to 300.00. I have got to say the best steel is $175 lifetime warranty on bulbs and ballast. No problems so far, just great night vision.
