    Ralphie, harnesses aren't always necessary... but you'll be better off having one. It makes your HID bulbs/ballasts last longer and also prevent any harm to your stock wiring.

    Easy way to tell if you'll need the harness is if you burn out the HIDs within a month or two. That tells you that you need a harness, as well as a new HID kit.
    Well i ended up not getting one because the majority of the guys over at 6thgen reported not using the harness(when they ordered their HIDS, the harness wasn't offered) and theyve been rocking them for 2+ years without any bulb or wiring issues.

    Also, DDM says it is not necessary for most US/EU applications, but deff for ATV/Bike applications.

    I guess time will tell, but im pretty confident that ill be ok.

    Im not sure if the Cb/CG wiring is the same, but if i was doing this to a 20 year old harness, then i would have ordered the harness without questioning it, but the coupe is fairly newer so the wiring should be ok.

            Ok so the HIDS have arrived.

            I inspected and everything seems to be in order.

            Bulbs are labeled 9006.

            Ballasts are labeled 35w.

            Only one bulb had a 5k sticker on it, the other had no sticker at all.

            Anyway, they smell good lol and look fantastic.

            Here are some pictures-

            The kit-


            and i setup one to see if this is the correct setup, since there are no directions.

            Ive installed one kit before, so i believe i have it wired correctly....anyone want to confirm.



            So as it shows, i just connect the harness from the bulb into that open female end?

                Why thank you kind sir.

                Ya i mean, it isn't hard but the only time ive installed them, i had directions.

                Damn i wish it wasn't raining, i want to install them lol.

                Ugh i hate having mods and not being able to do them, at least if im broke i can dream....but when the dream is true but you can't wrench, shit sucks.

                Which leads me to my next question-

                how do mofos like being locked up in Prison?

                Can't do anything you like to do, except learn about more illegal activities.

                    I HATE having things without the ability to install them. It's such a shitty feeling. You're not alone.


                    ... which leads me to my next thought. You have a wife, and I'm sure you have an umbrella. Put them both to work while you install the HIDs.

                      LOL!

                      Na man, people are more alike then they care to notice.

                      Like the thread you made about day dreaming about what you would do to girls if you could freeze time....

                      lol...yea.


                      Well i noticed the smell when i popped open the box....btw how was yours shipped?

                      Nicely?

                      Mine was in a small ass box with some brown paper wrap and a label lol.

                      Nothing fancy, not packed very well, but ok id say which is risky on their part.

                      Idk, i mean i pack better then them and im a small time seller on ebay....they must bank on these HIDS and they sent them kinda "loose" lol.

                            LOL be careful though, that is what Deev got...like a small aluminum carport....and it blew away lol.

                            I never got to see it though, i was by his once and i don't believe he had it up.

                            All it takes is one good updraft and that shit is gone lol.

                            But yea, i dream of installing a small lift in my 2 car garage that i plan to own, but i don't think ill be able to afford it lol.

                            But id kill for a little garage space right now.

                              It was in one big brown box () but there were 3 boxes. One had the ballast in it and the other 2 were smaller ones with the bulbs in them. I was expecting foam and what-not, but yeah I was a little disappointed by the packaging. Definitely not the worst, but I was expecting a little more out of them.

                              Talking to their CS, i still think and feel that they're ran out of some tiny office somewhere. Or like some little 4-room building. One group recieves, one group ships, one group is the sales/website people and the other group are their CS guys. If it works, it works, but damn...
