I think the issue is caused by vibrations from the engine, not the transmission. The dual mass fly wheels are supposed to restore some balance. I suppose you could try having your crank and pistons...

Just FYI, the aftermarket ballasts are nowhere near the quality of OE. They won't ignite and warm up as quickly and they aren't as bright watt for watt. If you get the 55w, it will be brighter...

I haven't bought the lift yet actually. I spent all the money on the modifications to the garage, the plans etc so I don't have money for the lift now. Maybe next year.
