Default Do you prefer slim HID ballasts?

With all the recent HID discussion and the seemingly popularity of slim HID ballasts I was wondering how many of you feel the slim kits are worth the extra money.

Me personally, I felt it was worth the extra money for my fogs due to the ballast mounting location, but I stayed with the regular full size kit for my headlights.

It all depends on the wattage

I have used many different kits in my past, and from experience I have come to realize that a slim 35w kit is 100% reliable, but if you are going to go with 55w, a normal size ballast will be more reliable.

Just my $.02

its not worth it... we have plenty of room to properly mount a fullsize ballast anywhere. there is no need for it.
