    Hi everyone, if you are after projectors retrofitted into your JDM headlights... I can do this for you. Now we have options. Please see the options listed below.

    Projectors..
    1. Pair of Projector Retrofits - $365 for members and $395 for NON Members
    2. Quad Projectors - $575 for members and $605 for NON Member

    Shrouds..
    1. Mini Gattling Gun Shrouds - the usual round or square ones that I use - No Extra Charge
    2. Mini Graphite Shrouds without Halo/Angel Eyes - No Extra Charge
    3. Mini Graphite Shrouds with Halo/Angel Eyes - $20 for a pair / $40 for Quads (CCFL ONLY)
    4. TRS Morimoto / Profile XSB - Halo / Angel Eyes are an extra $220 aud (quad) $130 aud (pair) due to the cost and time on installation


    What is Included in the kit..

    - Pair H1 35w HID Bulbs - Color Options - 3000k/4300k/5000k/6000k


    I don't suggest using anything higher than 6000K simply because you'll lose functionality..

    - Proper Harness to hook up / connect the Bi-Xenon to your High Beam
    - BA9S SMD LED Park Bulbs for replace the conventional bulbs if Angel Eyes are not selected
    - 6 months warranty for the bulbs
    - 1 year warranty on the workmanship
    - Narva Phantom Indicator Bulbs if customers want their amber plate removed (they all want them removed)

    Original Thread can be found here

    EXTRAS...

    I can also supply the following if requested..


    HID...


    - HID 35w Ballasts - This includes 1 year warranty and proper connectors to suit your oe harness
    Price $85 a pair

    LED...

    not using LED anymore due to recent test

    LED = 120LM
    HID = 450LM

    Headlights...

    If you require headlights - they are $175 for a pair - condition of these varies from little scratches to stone chips - but I usually try my best not to give out crappy headlights - I have thrown out 6 sets simply because of poor quality/condition.


    Transaction Process

    - Full payment is required as I don't stock some of the parts - such as the TRS halos

    Transaction is based on a SWAP.. which means you will need to send me your original ones after you get the kit.
    - Buyer pays for the Delivery of the retrofitted Headlights and return of stock headlight back to me..
    - Stock Headlights should be in good condition - if they are faded I will charge an extra $50 for it because I buff it by hand.. and if they are heavily scratched, I'll have to see the scratches first because the next person getting these lights will mostl likely complain about it.. simple as that..

    So far the following have had Projector Retrofits

    - Jonson
    - TME_Steve (Quad Projectors with Quad Angel Eyes)
    - Unclepaulie
    - SteveP
    - AKKO

    - Gorgath
    - JDM_VR4
    - Slinz
    - Lathiat
    - Teppei

    ^Agreed only downside of being an early adopter is that i dont have quads proj, though the highs are HIDs aswell. :)

    JUSTCRUZIN's went with Dions red Galant to Jim. I bought my own set.
    I tell this to most people that ask - it's one of the best mods I've done. I got the early ones, but am thinking about going to quads.

    Cheers
    just gotta sort out my funds and I might be interested in a set.
    Have you got an rough estimate of postage to sydney NSW so I know what to budget to save?
    And sorry to ask another Q, what ballasts do you supply for the extra charge, are they ones from TRS?

    As everyone has said, this such a great mod and excellent bang for your buck.

    For people concerned about quad projectors. I don't really think the high beams need to be a projector. Putting a HID bulb in a standard light creates that blinding/scattered affect which is annoying with your low beams. But for high beams it's exactly what you want.

    The quads are great and they certainly look the goods but just be aware of the one reason factory cars don't run seperate high beam HID's. HID's take time to warm up so while the low beam lights instantly switch to high, the high beam lights warm up to add their extra light output.

    I absolutely love mine so nothing negative intended, if you want to see how the angel eyes look have a look here the pic is used as the main page banner is just the halo's on.

    also, dependent on what brand/type ballast you use, some have 1sec warm up time and some with 5 seconds to full brightness..

    so your call on what ballasts you wanna use..

    the one I use on my car is a $250 set, they're the full size ballasts. Its been kicking ass for the last 5/6 years and I've had it even before I had my vr4..

    also Simon's got the Belouf ballasts, they're huge but they work like those Philips/Narva/Hella Ballasts (which are very expensive if bought brand new)

    I've been through 2 sets of cheap Ebay skinny ballasts already. Next time they go I will be getting a decent set.
