    I just got mine from http://www.mod-express.com and they are great, good quality, good light output & I have not had any complaints from anybody about glare. I ordered the 6K kit & they look real good, they had a sale & I got my Bi-Xenon kit for $116 shipped.

    My bad, misread your question... mod-express.com includes the relay harness for free if its H4 bulbs otherwise it costs an extra $10 if I remember correctly.

    I'd still get a wire harness. Just so its getting power directly from your battery and now straight from the old headlight wire harness.

    X2. I'd never run an HID kit without a relay harness. Cheap insurance to not fry your stock wiring.

    I got mine from DDM. I've been very happy with them, and they only cost $170 for the 35W 6000K lights for both the headlights and fogs. That is cheaper than even the group buy was.....

    Also just to warn you. I've seen people with no harness HID lights go out and stop working. Even if they have a warranty, its still a pain in the rear to do it all twice. Thats why whenever I am working on something I say "do it right or do it twice"

    when i ordered my HID's off ebay for my tacoma, The Bi-xenon kit came with a harness. I'm not sure if I was lucky or not lol. But just look around. When I got the 4runner I did a retrofit on it.
