I will plan on buying once you set up a paypal.
I will get a time frame going once I meet up with the shop friday. And we will also work out shipping at that time. I can't see it being anywhere as long as some group buys on this forum *cough*icarbon*cough* LOL

Does this include shipping? At first I was thinking, whoa that's expensive. But the headlights are about $350, plus about $200 for a HID retrofit (or more, for one that actually works in our cars!), plus shipping around $30-$50 for shipping (headlights come in big boxes!) and you're at about $600. Figure cost of the LED components and labor involved in the retrofits (HIDs and LEDs) and $820 sounds pretty reasonable.

Shipping is being worked out, but is not included in this first price( but like you said, shouldn't cost much more than the stated by your post). And I am glad you broke it down as such, because, we made this kit with a very small profit margin in mind to get you guys an amazing deal. Also, don't forget this price includes the Angel Eyes!! Similar Angel Eye Setups cost around $700 just for the Angel Eyes and installing them in headlights that you already have.

It is currently the best alternative for people that want Angel Eyes + HIDs installed on 128 halogen for plug and play!

OEM version when you buy from Ebay + install and programming from BMW = 2600$... 3600$ if you buy lights from BMW new.

Crappy HID kits with errors = 50-200$...

This kit includes error free for 1 series, which the market is still not as much demand for which keeps price at a premium.

DEPO just by themselves are not as good... so this upgrade is definitely worth it! I wouldn't turn back one second after purchasing these. If you want to wait and see how they look on my car once I get them ill let you know how it goes and answer any questions you have. I will probably buy when Monday roles around.

-Scott


As far as ordering goes Sam if you want to know what I want I will be looking at the:

Full Conversion (6k HID/ White LED) just let me know the payment information when that becomes available.

Question regarding the "White LED" are those the same color as the 6k HIDs (do they match??)

I donīt care about the HID kit (itīs still not allowed in germany ), I just want the angel eyes

The worst part, for me, is, sending the depos to Sarracino89 (overseas) and wait for them ...

Oh I had no idea you were international. That presents a problem as you have to send you DEPOs since you already own a pair I presume.

Sorry for the misunderstanding!!

No, there is too small of a profit margin on the kit. however, it is plug and play, so you will only need to remove the bumper, remove the headlights, and then put the new ones in and replace the bumper. However, if you would like, I would be willing to help you with the installation (free of charge of course).

Good way to put it if you think these are "expensive," look at how much the rubbish oem ones are.

Yes, the white LEDs will match with 6k.

Still think its weird that HIDs are illegal in Germany, especially now that I see US busses with them
And knob, I understand your concern, especially since shipping overseas may cost alot. One possible option to solve this would be to purchase the kit(-minus the HIDs) and we would send it out to you and then you could sell your depos possibly? Not sure but its an idea nonetheless.

Seems like just getting the DEPOs with upgraded angels would probably set you at around 5xx-6xx w/o shipping. My estimate with the price breakdowns.

Then you have to seal it correctly and other things which may cause extra problems down the road...

Any update on shipping/purchasing yet?

Right, plus the price includes the installation of the rings.

Monday is the day we going to use to clean up all the business side of things (final pricing, shipping, etc) and then purchasing will begin Tuesday.

BBallgms, are you going tonight?
