I bought these 2 kits about 8 months ago. The last I heard back from any one from Alpine was 3 months ago. I have been very patient all this time with only 1 pm a month to follow up on if they have gotten around to me as not to flood their message box. It's good that Alex has taken good care of some of you and he seems like a nice guy. Maybe they are just too busy to get back to me but 3 months without a word is not what I call good customer service unfortunately. If any one has other suggestion on how I can get in contact with Alpine, I would appreciate your input. The kit is great when it's working I must add. cheers.
This is my point here...

My problems began months ago. I went through multiple PM's, e-mails, all sorts of stuff, sending my info multiple times so I could get the error message for the lights cleared. I was SUPPOSED to get a new part or something, nothing ever came, I got no confirmation of shipping or anything.

This and the posibility of yellowing from the HID lights is why I went to LUX. A bit more expensive, and not as bright, but so much easier. The install was a simple plug and play right into the headlights. When I lift the hood there is no sign of anything being installed.

I loved the Alpine HID's and their brightness, but the lack of support is what made me switch. Had I been helped immediately, I'd probably still have them on now.
