I ordered HellFire's on Wednesday and they arrived on Friday, even though they said Backordered on the website. Communication was awesome as I had a tracking number within about an hour of my order. I have to give their ordering process a 10 out of 10.
The light output is just as amazing; however the overall installation experience - not so amazing. I'm going to give it a 4 out of 10.
> When I opened it, there was no Rebel-specific documentation other than the straight-from-china instructions that were in with the bulbs. I found the installation instructions on Rebel's website, which are a bit incomplete (while it's clear from the parts how it works, the instructions don't mention hooking up the passenger-side chassis cable to the harness).
> the Harness-to-Chassis H13 male connector was NOT attached to the harness and there was no indicator of how to wire it (it was 3 loose ends crimped to the pins). I called Rebel (4PM on a Friday) and they said they would send me details, which haven't come yet.
> Not wanting to wait for tech support response until Monday, I goggled and found a photo of someone else's hellfire installation, copied their colors, but it wasn't right. It would not go into high-beams (or was high-only, not sure). I continued to google around and figured out Blue-High (Left), Brown = Ground (Center) and White = Low (Right). This answer came from an ebay item for $39 for a kit that looked identical to the $199 kit I just bought. I couldn't get the tips to come out of the adapter, so I cut the wires and verified:
This pattern solved my issue and high/low beams worked properly now. If it had come attached It would have saved much headache. The blog I found which showed the colors that didn't match mine
also had a problem with the connector fitting. I have the same problem and had to fix it with the same solution, zip ties to hold the two connectors together:
> I wasn't too happy with this so I cut-apart one of the factory lights and tried to use it as a donor connector, but I couldn't get any solder to stick to the metal that originally connected to the factory bulb. I'm going to order another H13 adapter off ebay and see if it fits better. For now i've soldered back the poor-fitting adapter and have it together with alot of tape & zipties as shown above.
> The HID-to-Projector Housing adapters fit very loose. The bulbs would have fallen out on their own. After trying both of them in both light housings, I decided to take the orange gasket off the original bulbs and sandwich them between the adapters and the housing. This worked great:
Here's a one-eye'd photo for absolutely no reason:
So once I had everything in place and working, I will say it's extremely bright.
Overall, i'm satisfied with result of the increase in illumination, but I would have expected a higher quality product (or atleast a sticker!) for the 500% premium over ebay.
