Ok here goes. This is an attempt to review the 55w 9005 Canbus time delay relayed OPT7 HID system
The package was delivered well packed and had tons of instructions with it.
Let it be noted you do not have to spend the extra money for the Canbus ballast, nor do you have to use the time delay power relay. I chose to use both solely for anti flicker and miss fire reasons. I have installed over 15 HID systems on my past and present vehicles. I hate nothing more than one headlight working on start up. Drives me nuts!!! To be 100% honest the install would probably look a tad cleaner if you didn't use the relay and harness. I may even move the relay harness inside the front grill to make it more stealthy.
I started with the drivers side since that's where my battery is located. It's a very simple and self explanatory process to do these. The drivers lamp is a tad more tricky to get it all clicked together and stuffed in the housing. Make sure if you cut the factory weather boot as I did that you do not over size the hole. Keep it some what smaller for a tighter seal.
I mounted the Ballasts with 3M super adhesive double sided tape. This stuff may not seem like it bonds great at first , butI promise once the ballasts get a little heat going after a few evenings of driving. They will be stuck so tight they will break unless you cut them free with a razor blade. I tucked them under the front support brace. They bonded nicely and I was happy with they way it looked. I also mounted the relay under the drivers ballast. Also let it be noted when you use the relay harness you *DO NOT HAVE TO WIRE THE PASSENGER BALLAST TO THE FACTORY WIRES*!! This made the passenger side a breeze to seal up with the factory weather boot. Also you see in the pictures the passenger bulb needs to have a short wire clipped and stuffed into the two holes for the ballast wires. This wire solely is there to plug the open holes since we do not have to hook the ballast to the factory plug on the passenger side.
The harness was easy to tuck away and install. The power supply for your HID system comes straight from your battery when you use the harness. The power lead goes straight to the positive terminal. And the ground goes to the ground terminal.
I was more than satisfied with the quality of the lamps, ballast, and harness. I would highly recommend and HID kit be installed with the relay harness. It's a fail safe way to avoid them unwanted miss fires and flickering. Plus it's a direct power supply to the ballasts.
I choose the 6000k lamps and I am very happy with the tone and brightness on them. They are a 500% improvement over the shitty stock lamps.
If you have any questions just ask. I will also upload the PN and source I used for this kit.
