    be sure to use some Dielectric grease on ALL the connectors when installing this kit. This is my second kit because I didnt use any the first time around. I had a harness corrode out and shorted out some other things. Guess the German weather and very salty winter roads took its toll pretty early(6mo). Ill also have to change the routing a little. but the kit is dead easy to install and the light output is exceptional.

    All the kits are in transit to me. I should receive them either today or tomorrow. I will then box them all up and ship them out to you guys Monday. :) You should receive them 1-3 business days once shipped.

    According to this...http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/group-buys/124349-hid-xenon-group-buy-round-1-ends-12-12-10-a.html ...there will be a new group buy each month.

    But if you are going to buy HID's through a group buy, wait until it's Slim's month or contact him directly. I would not buy from some other dude who is trying to cash in off Slim's success. That's just wrong.

    I didn't dog his HID's...I just don't care for his business plan. Slim had this market and he should find another route to peddle his product. Lot's of sites out there, you just need to be creative and take initiative - like Slim.

    That happened to me as well. It's likely a bad ballast. Switch it with the other (working) side and see if the light comes on. If it does, you need to replace the ballast. Slim warranties his for 1yr. I had to cut wires on the bad ballast and send a picture to him (along with $5 for shipping). He was quick in sending me a new one.

    If it still doesn't work, it could be a bad bulb or connection. But it's likely the ballast. Once you are out of warranty, I think they can be found for about $30.

    Bulbs both work. I've tested things and have removed the hid's nothing like uninstalling brand new shit. :(.... Well it's been several days and no word back from slim. This is why I normally don't like buying things u can't call and talk to anyone about. 140bux and can even get a PM back
