no need to spend that much. The vagabonds work fine with the bxri and dlites as long as you're not using the modeling light. The only quirky thing is that you have to remove the modeling bulb because the modeling light on/off switch is a soft-switch and if you forget to turn the modeling light off beforehand you may have problems.

Not entirely true. Do you know about Elinchrom's firmware version numbers? It doesn't always mean that when it appears to work, that it is safe. The issue on the modeling light is on continuous power output and because VML is only 120/130 (?) watts. The problem is on voltage detection.

Don't get me wrong. VagMini is awesome. But it is designed for Alienbees. And Alienbees design is different from Bowens or Elinchrom.
