Again, I would go for the slimline ballast, as even with the extra wiring, I was able to squeeze it all in place of the stock ballast. Even with new bulbs, the ballasts are about $100 shipped, which beats your $200 price point. > > One small caveat: they are on backorder due to Christmas, so it will be several weeks before they get your order out.
