I've got mixed feelings seeing that pic, 1 hand I'm happy your grief will be over, on the other I'm sad it didn't work out

Done !!!!


Now to see what TRS will do for me.

Let me be clear, I don't blame TRS for faulty product, considering how frustrated I've been over this project, they have stepped up to the plate ... To some extent. me, the consumer assumes I am their #1 customer and always expects more than they should.

In general, satisfied.

[MENTION=9098]Bill[/MENTION]invic I realize that my drama thread may affect your niche of a business, and my apologizes, wasn't my intent.

More of a buyer beware approach.

Not for a second I would think that Joel_980. The important thing is, I stand behind my product and service through thick and thin...despite the occasional electrical gremlin that rears it's ugly head!!!!

I would retrofit as well, but have spent over 300 dollars on TRS kits. BUT they have done well with me as of now. They are sending me new 5five ballasts AND new 3five ballasts that I had initially complained about. Turns out the flickering wasn't a "1 in ridiculously high number" improbability. Im just hoping my bulbs work with the new ballasts. Many on other forums are saying that nothing will light with the new ballasts -period-. A bit scary.

Hmm is this why when I installed my new 3Five DSP ballasts, neither headlight came on?

Whatever a set of matchbox projectors (or led projectors) and a set of housings, plus labor and materials.

Value? Depends on how long it takes. Best guess, maybe $400-$500 total (labor being a variable addition)
