What causes it to be so expensive? You can find the housings on eBay for $400-$700 each, and from my understanding you could purchase an HID kit to compensate for what is missing, which can be acquired for $200ish? I am sure some other ecu changes would need to be made but is there anything else I'm missing? I'm sure there is, I am thinking of doing it myself, so it would be good to know
