    (pic request) TRS XB35 HID kit, relay

    hey guys, i dont know if anybody has been following, but i was in an accident recently and the shop told me i needed new HID since the bulbs were damaged during the accident.
    I clearly remember checking them after the accident and noticed it wasn't broken, but w.e. if i need it, then i need it. So i ordered the TRS kit from K5OS and Dave ordered me a new XB35 kit.
    When i got the car back, i noticed the ballast was exactly the same, so i called and they've informed me that they have replaced the ENTIRE hid kit and was adamant about it. After 20 min conversation about how I installed the kit myself and I know they didn't replace it, the manager spoke to the tech and told me that the tech had replaced the bulbs but not the ballast.
    I've told them that I'll need the entire system replaced because warranty wouldn't cover mix and match of two HID systems, so they told me to bring the car around the next morning so they can fix that and other issues.
    so fast forward to next day, i go to the shop and had to talk to the manager for another 20min about how i noticed that the tech didn't even change the bulbs. After the tech was called in and more time was wasted, I've requested they go back into the shop and bring me my old bulbs. After some time, the tech calls me into the back of the shop and tells me that he forgot that he didn't change them and had only replaced the relay on the ballast and proceeded to show me the box with the bulbs and ballasts. I've requested they place everything that came in the box into my trunk and leave it for when i come to pick up the car.
    I've called the TRS and they've told me that the relay that they use are black and they don't have hyundai/kia relays (which is what i have on my relay harness right now). I am so god damn furious that the shop keeps F&cking this one simple thing up!


    can someone with a XB35 TRS HID kit please please take a picture of the relay and post it here?
    I plan on sending those pictures to the shop and having them find me my god damn relay so i can finish this damn nightmare

    tl;dr i need someone to take a picture of the relay harness of XB35 TRS HID kit please

    nope, don't need a pic of it installed, i just need a picture of the harness itself, especially around the relay.
    I'm just trying to prove that the relay they left on in my car is the old relay from my previous install, not the new one that the XB35 comes with.

    god damn it, so i was right and the mech didn't install the proper cable. The shop owner keeps insisting they've gave me all the components and they don't have anything anymore and that the relay i have now is the new one.
    I'll show them this and tell them to pay for a new one

    thanks for the photo!

    Nope, my insurance company has a deal with them. I would've chosen a different place
