I used diodes for years without issue and just for the helluva it bought the fleece mod this past spring. A couple weeks ago the fleece module started sometimes working intermittently. This meant that when I flipped to highs I had no lights at all, just parking lights which do not illuminate the road. Kinda dangerous at night. Merchant sent me a new one with no hassle, but the radioshack diodes never failed on me.

Been done since The Place and works just fine.
Some people would rather pay a bit more for plug and play and retard proof installation.
I just like clean and don't want all the extra diodes and wiring. Pulling the fuse box cover to do it underneath is a pia.

I bought the module for this very reason....I'm anal and I liked how this cleaned things up. It was very disappointing that it failed in a couple of months with next to no use. Maybe 2,000 miles. The diodes from 2007 were still working when I swapped them for the fleece module.

I've had my fleece module in for over a year with no issues, with both HIDs and halogens in the highs & lows (no fogs).

Yeah I feel like its just convenience that you pay for when buying from Fleece or Merchant

I run the diodes like others have mentioned and haven't had any issues, was cheap and easy to do.I would think it would be about the same amount of work to put the diodes in that to do the one from fleece.
