I've already seen this (thanks for the link though), Im going to pursue a "quad Retrofit" with the Morimoto MH1 in the "Low beam" and the Morimoto Matchbox in the "high beam" but have them both running at the same damn time.

The biggest issue is the factory headlamps do not get enough Voltage under deceleration 9v-9.7v which shuts down the ballasts.
Me personally would always use a relay system so I knew I was getting pure clean current straight from the battery.

Also, with my buddies 2012 Focus SE, when I installed his HID kit without resistors (55w Kit) I didn't use any load resistors but still used a relay harness. No dipped bulb or any failures.
