FC3S hid retrofits

I have some prototypes laying around and later on this week they will be test fitted on a fc. Who will be interested in buying a set? I have come up with a price of 495, it isn't set in stone so the price may go up or down depending on design of the headlight. This retrofit will not have any cutting or spacing involved it will be a true PNP setup.

Let me know your thoughts!

excellent idea.
I like the idea of a kit that is truly plug and play and does not require the user to cut their car or mount their lights in any way that was not as-original.

This is what will be included with each kit:
Oem quality 35w ballast
Oem quality 4300k d2s bulb
PNP wiring harness
New headlight housing
Bi-xenon projector with clear lens
Alcohol wipes for bulbs



This kit is designed to be a true PNP application no messing around with spacers or cutting up your car! The install will be as easy as changing a burnt out headlight. My kit offers a bi-xenon (high/low) projector with a unique mounting point which saves on labor cost and the housing does not get cut up to fit the projector. The end result offers a very clean setup.

Some may notice that this kit is 95% the same as the other hid retrofit out there. The only difference is the projector bowl and bulb. I will also add that both projectors from each kit are designed and sold by the same people! The quality in this kit is top notch and each projector has been quality checked by my supplier and I do another test when I receive them.

Here are some pictures of the prototype. I keep my retrofits very oem looking inside and out, but I am open to suggestions with shrouds. I will get some pictures on a car as soon as I can get my friend up here with his fc.



What's included


E55 shroud


E46 shroud


Back of projector


Projector cutoff


I am very experienced in retrofitting many different cars and I want to give back to fellow 7 owners with a quality kit at an affordable price. To show my craftsmanship below are some examples of retrofits I have done:




Lexus is300



Miata




FD3S with e55



FD3S with e46



I do single orders so no waiting months for others to commit, I also do my retrofits on a very strict time line.

good to point out the wiring, the relays, the ballasts, the bulbs, everything is the same as more expensive kits, the mounting of the projector is where you are saving the money.
No spacers, the most you will have to take apart your car is how picky and stealth you want your wiring and ballast mounting to be. 3M double sided tape will be included for ballast mounting. Due to the labor savings you are able to enjoy your lights right away.

Yes you can ask for different bulb temps but I would highly suggest against using the 55w ballast. The fc housing is pretty small and might have some problems with the extra heat.

I want to get my prototypes fitted and tested for a couple of days and that will be done this weekend. The payments go through me, TRS is located about an hour away from me so i receive parts within a couple of days.

I'm going to try and stock up on parts here soon so there will be minimum wait time on orders. Lastly i provide a one year warranty on everything.

The e46 doesn't have leds those are just dimples in the shroud, I test fitted the kit on my friends car and he decided he wanted a set lol, fitment pictures will be up later tonight.

Test fit is done, I didn't put the shroud on the projector so it's not the finished product.

There is about 1/2 inch of room between the frame and bulb connector. There were no spacers or cutting involved!

Here is the list if you guys want a set, i am going to start ordering housing's so the wait time on the lights won't be forever. If there isn't enough interest for a group buy i will just do individual orders.

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
