Thank you. That confirmed my suspicion, I thought maybe they "forgot" mine or something. I actually thought of the junkyard, might be stopping by there at some point. Yes, the connectors are sealed as all of them are that are exposed to the elements under the hood have to repel dust and moisture. It definitely looks good though.

Once you get this setup, please report on any improvement in light output and/or beam pattern. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but never pursued where to get a set.

Well this was an old post from 2009. Not sure the fella ever followed through with it, so I don't think there will be a follow up posted. I was just posting to try to get the rubber boot for the ballast.

If you really want improvement in light output AND beam pattern, you need to do the lightwerkz retrofit. I have bi-xenons and I even did it. Hell of a difference. I think it was Natty99 who introduced me to it. Best $600 I've spent.
