Default quad headlight housing retro fit hid projector.

Hi Mates

Sorry for posting a hid question again. I have been trying to reply other "hid threads" but didn't get much luck. If there are better ways to get answers, please let me know.
I have the stock quad headlights. I'd like to buy the D2S hid conversion kit from retrofitsource and do the installation my self. I did borrow an image from Jeremy's retroshop website because that's exactly how I want the end product to look like (I'll paint the housing though)
The other picture is my planned wiring diagram. The only thing stops me from doing this is that been a Canadian vehicle, I have DRL, and retrofitsource has told me that a lot of Canadian vehicles fitted with can-bus standalong have flickering issue because of the DRL. I don't tend to buy the explanation because if you look at my wiring diagram closely, I'm using a Y-harness to split the stock high beam input to stock high beam halogen bulb & projector's solenoid. So DRL=high beam half power, which may have something to do with the projector's solenoid, but why would I care about the solenoid's position (if any) at DRL anyway since the (yet to be installed hid) does not even fire up at "DRL mode". On the other hand, when headlight is switched to "ON" position, it is just like a U.S. model so if all the U.S. model can run can-bus standalong without flickering, why can't a Canadian vehicle (DRL vehicle) do the same(when headlight switched to "ON")?

Thanks in advance
Mark

The only thing DRLS (high bulb at half power) will screw up is a high beam HID bulb upgrade.
The half power in DRLS mode isn't enough to power the ballasts and they will flicker constantly.
