I agree with things like this. Some mods I do for the fun of it, others that cost me time with very little financial gain, I prefer to go the easy route. I too would just order from the factory.
Sure it took my 10 minutes to place the order, and 10 minutes to install the bulbs, but I was left with wasted bulbs, and oh yeah.......I can't forget the 5 hours researching it took to come to the final decision of what to order. OR, the many hours (and dollars) I wasted buying some cheaper ones only to find out they did not do the job.
I base many of my decisions that use my time on the monetary value it entails. If it is something I don't care to do, and can get someone else to do for less than $50/hr, I will hire it done, and go and do what I do for a living to cover the cost. If it has a fun factor for me (as the majority of trailer project do, but not so for my cars), this does not apply. If it is time spent with family or friends, then that time is invaluable.
