well got my hid kits today took about 1.5 hours to install on my 05 escape, the wireing was very simple, just plug and play , the longest part was modding the backs of the headlight covers cause the new bulbs are straight out and not at a 90 degree angle, so i had to use my die grinder to make a hole so the back of the bulb and abit of wire could stick out about 1/2 inch or abit more, than i just made a encloser over the hole and sealed it with plumbers dope so it is weather tight! then routing the ballists and relay etc. took abit of time as i wanted it to look as factory as possable. here is a pic ive attatched of the hids on, its kinda taken from an angle so it appears that the left side is brighter but in fact they are both super bright,I cant wait till tonight to see what they are truly like on the street etc. my kit was a 6000k 35 watt, and have my daytime running lights still working, and no flickering whatsoever, just a steady brilliant light, please dont look at my messy shop! lol,... Dino

cant seem to fiqure out how to attach a pic??
