^^Thanks, glad to hear the no flashing part. Yes the pics did look good. The 55.00 was with the error eliminator, and 55 watt bulbs but I didn't add the 21.00 shipping yet.

Still wont work. Go to retro-solutions and get the harness you need before you waste your money. Trust me. You will be the 100th person to ask why their headlights arent working.

im not trying to be a dick about it I know from first hand that its not an issue with the error cancellor its the way the headlamps get power. The relay harness lets them get power from a solid 12-14 volt source which is needed to keep and hid running. the headlights on deceleration see only 9volts something Ford did to cut back on gas useage during decel.

As you can see on one of my picture, i have a nice definite line with my lights, no one flashed their high at me ! I tried to face my own car on the road also, and it's alright! I'm concerned about other diver so i made my test :P

No glare, no flashing, My pictures show that my lights are more focused on the ground then the OEM lights of a PT cruiser behind a car.
I bought my hid set for low beams for 50$ + 8$ for relay harness, and i bought my own resistor that i wired by my self at my electronic shop for 49 cents each :) for the fogs i had no problem. 50$ kit, no harness needed, no resistor needed
:D Total: 109$

I just liked the DDM kit I have used on my bikes, thought the error elim. kit would have fixed the problem. But I don't want it if it won't work. The DDM kit uses 1 headlight hard shell as the on - off to relay, the power comes from the battery with inline fuse.

I know this is dumb but I don't see a way for the resister to hook directly to the headlights
