Re: VVME HID LIGHTS
Okay, I've "researched" these about as much as I'm willing to... Retards-R-Us and crew have commented regarding the lack of relays in all but the bi-Xenon kits, but just ignore them. They really have no clue about what they are talking about, and it's just a waste and heap of frustration to even reference it. HID lights don't need "way more amps" to power the ballasts than conventional vehicular lighting systems.
Now, what you should be aware of is that these seem to be one of the systems from the "Orient" (China, Korea, Indonesia, etc...) and may, again I say MAY, have ballasts that use poor quality components. Many such systems have reputedly been prone to premature failure of ballasts and bulbs (which may again be attributed to poor quality ballasts which do not properly regulate the AC current/Voltage ratio). The general consensus seems to stick with systems that utilize the German or American made ballasts and bulbs for the most reliability. The "Chinese" systems are cheaper, but like scooters, steel, and most electronics bearing the "Made in China" seal of approval, "cheaper" seems to be synonymous with "Cheap".
That's about all I can offer. May be a great system, but they're fighting a bad history of bad products that has seriously marred the reputation of most "Chinese" products. That said, they already have a leg up on the competition with their customer service and support. Lots of good reviews regarding that, so far.
