    What is there to upkeep? I have yet to replace a single ballast or bulb on any Xenon equipped car I have owned. In my experience they have lasted longer than any halogen that Ive had.

    Honestly I would go with the harness from TRS if you in fact need a harness, mainly because I wouldn't trust some of those ebay harnesses. If you do get a harness from ebay, you'll need to make sure it is set up for hi/low applications and you'll probably need to add 9006 connectors to the red/black hi/low wires.

    LOL wut? Even if one of my crappy chinese ballasts dies, it takes me 5 seconds to replace it with a new one. Maybe I just enjoy my projectors too much to go back and I'm just trying to convince myself here... whatevs

    my brother found a good set of hi/low bulbs with the harness for 50$ so i think hes gonna pull the trigger on that. its the bi-xenon H4 bulbs with the 35w 12v harness

    That is a PnP setup, I would not recommend. You are going to get flashed and cause a lot of pissed off drivers. I went that route for a couple of years, I can honestly say it's a waste of time.

    As they always say, it's better to spend a little more money doing it right, than it is to waste money on something you'll swap out for the real deal later.
