    Hella GTI headlights w/ aftermarket HID kit

    I have a set of Hella GTI/R32 projectors (These http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-...lights/ES6476/) that I got for a pretty good deal that I am looking to install on my Rabbit.

    I have the 10 to 12 pin adapter coming over from Germany through Kufatec, which I thought would make this a simple install. Then I bought a retarded expensive aftermarket HID kit from theretrofitsource.com (This one http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...roducts_id=177). I emailed them, and they assured me it was the correct one. Now sitting here with the headlight and doing a mock installation of the kit, I'm not sure its going to work. The can bus has a separate two prong plug that I have no idea where it goes. Has anyone done this sort of installation that can give me some pointers? thanks in advance.

    Am I better off returning the kit to trs.com (for a 20% restocking fee)? If so, what OEM parts do I still need, and where is the cheapest place to purchase them?

    Im going through the exact same process, I just bought the Hella GTI projectors. Maybe try uploading photos of the entire setup and wiring harnesses so people can see what you are talking about?

    I could really use some help with this topic too as there isnt much clear info about this topic.

    Thanks also

    From what I have read, making it work just seemed like to much hassle. I decided to bite the bullet and take the 20% restocking fee from theretrosource.com and return the setup. I'm keeping the Phillips bulbs because I have heard they are superb. I ordered used OEM ballasts through a seller on Amazon. My 10-12 point harnesses finally got off backorder and shipped, so I should have them soon. Just need to purchase OEM ignitors, and figure out the part number for the screws that mount the ballasts to the headlight housing, so I can get everything squared away and installed.
