HID ballasts?

where do you guys get your HID from now days? I need some replacement D2S ballast and bulbs, and I really rather not buy from the US.

Propr'one sells HID kits and is in Canada. I've been looking into doing the FX-R retrofit into my euro headlights and I came across great reviews for the morimoto kits from theretrofitsource.com They are in the US though.

Bulbs check dealextreme.com, cheap. Ballasts, i don't they have d2c or d2s, but i KNOW they have bulbs, free shipping to boot and no duty, but it takes a while ( a month)

Ivan, or The Retrofit Source/Lightwerkz. These guys might be pricey but they sell incredible products. I just got a set of FX-R bixenon projectors to get rid of my burnt and otherwise shitty single xenon ones, and their customer service is the best I have seen in a long time. For quality high lumen output bulbs, get the Osram CBI D2S. It's the ONLY 5000k colour output bulb that still puts out an excess of 3200 lumen, which only the yellow-ish 4150K Phillips 85122 put out.
