Hey guys.

Before I pick these up... wondering if I should be looking at 16 or 18 AWG wires connected to these pigtails?

Anyone that pick these up before know any good place but eBay to get these?

I picked up some on eBay and they were about 1/8" too narrow and I had to tape the terminals in anyway. Not only that, but I wasted my time soldering them into the kit only to have to remove them and crimp new terminals back on. PAIN IN THE ASS.

Seems like all the ones on eBay are the same... so likely what you got.

Thanks for the heads up!

What I found when installing my HIDs is that spade terminals, if wiggled just right, will "lock" in the car's H7 connector. To release them, you need to press on the tabs on the sides of the connector. It takes a bit of trial and error to get the spades in the connector just the right way so that they lock, but you'll eventually get it. So that may be another option for you, instead of getting male H7 connectors.

I did find that that spades locked in pretty well, what I'm trying to avoid is taping them to seal them. Was just looking for a solution I wouldn't have to worry about water with.
