HID's working, FINALLY !!!!!!
 
I purchased a fairly cheap fog light kit from FleBay (~$70) and have battled flickering since day one. New ballasts, adding capacitors, new bulbs, etc., nothing remedied the flicker. After searching this forum along with the charger forum, I decided to take another gamble and go with what the popular FleaBay seller HIDgate had to offer. These were cheaper than the other kit, believe it or not.
I'm very happy to say these things work!!!!! The kit came with a relay harness and an anti-flicker harness(cap with neatly wired plugs) for no additional charge. I bought a 6000K lowbeam & fog light kit ($40 per kit). Ran the relay harnesses to my fogs & low beams, installed the anti-flicker harnesses on each bulb, mounted all ballasts, and to my amazement no flickering!!! I highly recommend this kit to anyone who's on the fence.
I had HID's on my CTS-V and sorely missed the greater visibility at night. Life is all good now!

you didnt need the anti-flickering kit...the relay harnesses are all you needed on the WK. Good job anyway!

I thought that was the case when I purchased the crappy ProMax kit. After fighting the flickering, I said the hell with it and installed them on this new setup. Some people on the charger forum seemed to be hit-or-miss when installing them without capacitors. Some install the cap at the relay or the caps at the bulbs themselves. Brings me peace of mind, if anything.

Bought from seller HIDgate. 6000k kit with H10 bulbs for the fogs & 6000K kit 9006 bulbs for the low beams. $80 for both kits. Helluva deal, IMO.
