Is your setup with a single capacitor or dual resistors? Yo Nadz and I have the same issue and I finally just pulled my setup.
It was different that what I had seen before, looked like a resistor on each light, but I didn't look that close, just installed what they gave me and where they told me to install it. And the passenger side does have an extra connector but it is after what I think is the resistor (larger gold colored tube with looks like cooling fins).

Just ran them for 250 miles last night (in the dark) and they worked flawless. God it is nice to have the lights that will light up the world on brights

Nice setup. I also got an HID kit from RetroSolutions along with a projector retrofit and they are amazing. Much better than stock. Every question I had was answered and I had had no issues at all.

How did the Projector Retrofit work out? was it hard to install? and did you get the night vision kit or the digital kit with you projector kit?

Yep, you have the updated setup with resistors v. the single cap. Glad to hear it works for you.

For sure, YES or NO, are there any problems with bulb out warnings with this kit?

I just bought the 55W 5000K kit from RetroShop (same kit as ****************, just cheaper). He said that 99% of the time there are not problems with bulb out warnings. But reading this thread, it seems to be a mix.

I just installed my 55W Digital 6000k kit in my fogs and Im very happy with it. Took a couple of hours I would say between my intial routing, test and final securing of it..
The hardest is finding a suitable location to mount the ballasts.

The kit went in without any issue. No errors or flickering and the light they throw is amazing. They make my Silverstar Ultra headlamps look yellow. lol

I guess Ill just have to convert the low beams next...
