If you could have waited a bit, people would loan you some.

<=== him, for example.

But, yeah, mine have been on for more than a year, and I still love them! Kinda regret a few things (not going for S2k projectors and asking for the secondary shroud to be painted silver, and not going for E46 shrouds) but I still love the way they look and how they don't draw any attention at all. For all things considered everyone thinks they're stock until I tell them. Which is exactly what I was looking for!

Yea, I was in way too much of a rush. I wanted to get it all in motion before i had my surgery last week. no biggie tho... thats the price you pay for wanting it quicker, and im ok w/ that, lol

Yea, a lot of people these days are going with the TFX projector/lens setup... but i chose the TSX projectors w/ clear lens b/c it seems to give the best overall light output. the color of the cutoff was the least of my concerns as im getting these much more for functionality than looks.

it was a tough decision betweent he silver ad the black housing. i hope i end u[ liking my decision, lol

WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUCKKK !!!???

The person I bought one of the headlights form had it advertised as a coupe headlight. sure enough... when it gets to Bjorn its a sedan headlight. So ******* annoying.

Im just waiting for Bjorn to see if he has an extra coupe headlight that he can possibly trade w/ me.

Sucks to hear 'Lanx. Hopefully you can get this all resolved. I don't have my headlights right now, so I can't help out.

Please do
I can give you a list of what I have so far and an estimate for the labor...

TSX Projectors w/ Clear lens - $120
KLight 4300K HID Kit - $140
Pair of S2000 Shrouds - $70
*Set of 'Si' Headlights - $270 (though this may change b/c of the problem as mentioned above)
Labor - TBD... but I expect it to be about $330

Total - $930

*Note: you dont have to ge a new set of headlights. if you can wait in line to get a set of their loaner headlights, you can save a TON of money. But Im impatient and wanted to avoid any extra labor due to my shoulder surgery i had last week. I still cant move it 100%... so i bought a new set.
