I'm in the midst of a group purchase on HID retrofit kits that include projectors. The cheapest price for these I could find on ebay was $145 each, shipped from China.

WHAT? A complete HID w/ projectors retrofit kit. Kit includes ballasts, projectors, bulbs, harness, and mounting hardware. You will need to supply your own wire and connectors to interface with your car's electrical system. Pictures below.

Note that I am also able to place an order for a kit complete with projectors, bulbs, harness and hardware without ballasts for a slightly cheaper price as well. PM me if you are interested and I will inquire about availability and get you a price quote.

HOW MUCH? Price will be no more than $130-135 shipped to the lower 48 each, depending on the final number of kits ordered. Multiple kits sold per person will get a discount on shipping. Any international orders PM me for a quote with shipping.

WHEN? I'm setting the cut-off date for the first batch of orders for the end of this month. I'd expect the orders should be in before mid-late February, although I am not certain of date at this time. After I receive the kits it should be another 3-5 business days to your door. Who wants to install HIDs and projectors in the cold anyway? :tongue:
Any orders that are placed after the first "batch" has been fulfilled will be cued to a later date until the minimum order threshold is once again reached.

HOW? Let me know your preferences for each kit with one kit per line. Also be sure to include your zip code so I can get an accurate shipping total.
List the bulb type (for us MN12s it's 9007), angel eyes color (blue or white), and the bulb color temperature (4300, 6000, 8000k only for blue angel eyes, 5000, 6000 and 8000k only for white angel eyes).

Example:
9007, White, 5000k

I will contact the manufacturer when I have the final order ready on Feb. 1 and determine price for each person ordering when the manufacturer forwards me a total due. I will need full payment no later than Feb. 5th so I can place the order in an expedient fashion. It is essential that each person follow through with their orders otherwise price and availability of the group purchase may be affected for others. If you decide to cancel, I will need to know before the end of the day on January 31. I will accept paypal +3% as well as a postal money order. Shipping will be USPS Priority on my end and I will provide tracking information once I ship them.

That's just the normal driving beam. The high beams aren't any brighter, the light is just allowed to shine further down the road. IE, the cutoff shadow is removed. Feel free to ask for pictures on anything; 6000k bulbs pictured above.

So you have your 5 min order? Is there a max on this gp? Estimated delivery date after payment? I may be interested.

Yes, the order threshold has cleared (provided everyone follows through, of course) and I'm not aware of a max. I can check however and report back. I will be sending the order to the manufacturer on the first Monday in February and will give everyone until the end of the week to have payment to me so I can pay them (since I can't pay for everything out of pocket up-front on my own), and I expect 5-7 business days max from shipment to have them in hand. Then if I ship things USPS Priority, that's another 1-3 business days to your door. So make that any date between the 10th and 20th of February. Ideally, anyway... :rolleyes: Unfortunately I can't have them drop ship so I'm stuck as a "middle man" in the shipping process, adding several more days to the time in transit.

That is correct, these fit OE 96/97 headlights without any major modifications, if any at all. I am not aware if they will fit 94/95s, but I think they will physically fit. However the refracting lenses would likely interfere with the beam pattern from the projectors.

The details on installation and fitment are mostly on pages 2 and 3. Be sure to note that the pinout of the wiring harness has to be modified in order to take advantage of the high beams, as detailed in this post.

I plan on paying the end of this week. I sent a PM to you also.

Hope this turns out well for a GP!

Update:

The two people who were going to order kits from me that I know just dropped out, leaving me with only four to order. If nobody expresses interest before tomorrow night the deal will have to be called off.

Anyone who would like to purchase, now would be the better of the best-est time to order! We are low, and I was really looking forward to this, before people starting dropping there order's at the DEADLINE!

Now me and Brandon are stuck in our own little situation with either having to order enough kits between us to make the cut-off of 5, or just call it... That doesn't seem to cool in my book..:(

I wasn't able to make the minimum order threshold and wasn't able to make the purchase. You can find them on ebay still, I believe the going price is $130ish per set.
