    I'm just curious on how you can run HID's with DRL's without having the bulbs flicker. I just bypassed my DRL on my last vehicle, not sure what to do on the Captiva.

    Use a relay kit wired directly to the battery with the HID kit. It then only uses the power from youor lights to turn on the ballast with full power from the battery directly. Its the cheapest solution to flicker in the HIDs about $10.

    Anyone who sells the HID kits also sells the relay kits

    and that was the problem I had with my old car, only 1 relay, and I'd blow through it once a month. had to keep extra ones in stock.
