Not too sure what I'm going to do from here though. Keep stock bulbs, get the extreme kit, maybe go with the factory HID setup...
With all this trouble, I'd say stick with stock bulbs..

and save up for the HID setup later on.

Sounds good.

Do you have bad eyesight? If you don't, I would keep the stocks. And save yourself the money and the stress from all this. Just my .02.

Re: HID sometimes shuts off

I'm near sighted, so the brighter light helps. But I also do a lot of backroads driving and whatnot since my house in PA is in the sticks, that was my main reason for getting the HIDs.

But IMO it's not worth the money and time. I'll just do without the illuminated approach for now.
Nate - Talk to me bout this...my Driver's side does this when I unlock my car...but when I do the remote start and THEN unlock my car the drivers side does not flicker...its like you said nate it seems like it does not have enough power on unlock so it flickers BUT when the power is already flowing (ie remote started) there is no flicker. First, did you do anything to fix this? Second, how do I turn off the "illuminated approach"? And third, does the flicker cause any damage mainly in the long run??

I was never able to fix this Brad. If I have the illuminated approach on then and I unlock w/o remote start the drivers side will flicker and not come back on sometimes. I just turned the illuminated approach off. I know turning your lights on and off will shorten the lifespan of the ballast and bulb. But my jeep does the exact thing with the remote start it's fine but the jeep off just the drivers side does the flicker thing. I read some device to fis it but it was like $100. so I said phuck that. You have to go into the (personal settings) menu and turn the illuminated approach off.
