Question about Retro HID kit

Figured I'd post this in the general discussion thread since i'm sure plenty of people are running these across different model year trucks.

I wanted to ask how happy you've been so far with the Retro HID kits. Any problems? Failed ballasts, customer service, etc? I have one of their kits installed for about 6 months and so far have had one failed relay right out of the box. Failed ballast at ~4 months and now the replacement failed about 2 months later....

Curious to see if I just have bad luck or if there have been consistent problems lately. I paid more for their kit thinking I wouldn't have these types of failures and, of course, the warranty.

Just saw this. I am very. Happy with their kits. I have had my bi xenon headlights in for over a year and a half and not one problem. I just ordered my fogs last month and am very happy with them. They stood behind their products right?
