    Well it depends. If you're tight on money and want something easy to install, get the pnp kits from DDMTuning.com for $40.

    Not to thread jack but how's the output of the retros that you linked to? I want to do a retro but don't have the time, know how, or patience to build one like yosh did

    From what I've read, the Morimoto Minis are only marginally less in output vs. the FX-Rs. They are almost as good as the big boys.

    Thanks. I'll have to look more into them. They may not be the best of the best but the fact that all you really have to do is pull the lamps apart, plug everything in, and seal it back up is a huge plus in my book
