Question: Have any of you noticed any problems with the auto-on headlight system? I usually just leave my headlight control unit in auto and let the car take care of when to turn the headlights on/off for me. Also, as far as reliability is going, how is everything working? Anyone noticed any long term difficulties/problems with the upgrade? Lastly, does this kit involve any modification to the car such as cutting a slightly bigger hole, or taping to ensure proper sealing of wires/openings etc.?

I dont have any problems with auto-on. The only real mod i had to do to the car was cut a hole in the gasket behind the head light so the HID wires could go in. I didnt have to tape anything perse. I did have to solder some wires that i shrink-wrapped but no "taping" was required.

No problems with the auto on. Only problem I have is what to do with those resistors so that it wont burn anything. Ideas anyone?
