Default HID Kit Group Buy #2

We're buying HID Kits from Eagle Technologies. $150 + priority mail shipping within the US, PM for out of US. TO check shipping go to USPS.com and search shipping for 3lbs 8oz from 08559 to your zip. Those not marked "PAID" still have to pay me via paypal or another method (discuss with me, my msn address is pnosker (2) at hotmail.com). You can also google talk me at pnosker@ gmail.com. PAYPAL $+Shipping to pnosker at pnosker.com. Note which bulb type and color temp you want too please in the payment box.

If there is still interest in a GB for more kits, the new minimum is 15 (we had 15 orders last time including a couple of friends of mine). Price is $150 + shipping still, after payment, it took 3 days for shipment last time to me, and 2-3 days from me to the members. It was a pleasant experience and I'll post some pics from my kit. I am very impressed with mine, and I'm sure the other members will be as well. Manufacturer is Eagle Technologies in Guangzhou, China. Color temps are 4.3k, 5k, 6k, 8k, and higher if needed with all bulb types available. DS2 kits are $15 more than the others, so add $15 if you want one of them.

PICS HERE: http://pnosker.com/318ti/Pics/Eagle/


Because of excellent turnout for the last group buy, and general satisfaction, some members have expressed interest in more HID Kit purchases. Instead of using that already filled thread, I started this one. We need 15 purchases this time. $150 a set.

1. pnosker - H1 - 6000k
2. REMOVED
3. planetace - ? - ? (Pending Removal)
4. L84THSKY - H1 - 6000k (Payment Received)
5. AdamUD - H1 - 6000k *$-15* (Payment Received)
6. Mad-Machine - H3 - 6000k *$-15* (Payment Received)
7. Vazquezp - H1 - 6000k *$-15* (Payment Received)
8. BleMW - 9005 - 10000k *$-15* (Payment Received)
9. Meyers318ti - H1 - 6000k (Payment Received)
10. Vazquezp's friend (PAYMENT REQUEST SENT)
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
* Mad-machine - H9 bulbs - 6000k

Prices are $160 if we get 10 sets, $150 for 15, and $145 for 20+

Mad-machine is working on getting more buyers from his Tiburon forum.

Since I just got $1050 from Notebooks4Free.com and a large royalty check for undisclosed amount (larger than from Notebooks4Free.com), I'll front some of the money for you guys if you sign up for an account and complete an offer here: http://www.notebooks4free.com/default.aspx?r=801278

If you sign up here, I'll take $15 off the cost of one set. If you get others to sign up through that link, I'll take another $15 off. I'm doing this assuming I'll get the 18 people I need to get another $1050. Even if you don't want to participate in this yourself, there are a bunch of "free trial" things you can do (which you cancel immediately after you do them) in order to fulfill the "referral" status.

Here's a table of color temperatures: http://www.bmtown.com/imagedata/all/HID-Xenon-2L.jpg

I might be interested, but I'd like to see some pics of what they look like on a TI compared to the stock stuff.

I didn't realize they cost that much. You don't need to take apart the Depos to mount the HID kits do you?

We decided to go with Eagle because of their superior warranty compared to the other companies. They use Japanese sourced parts in their ballasts which we preferred. You do need to take the Depos apart... sort of. Basically you need to drill a hole in the plastic covering that opens up and use the grommet to keep out moisture. It's pretty straight forward though.

Here's the procedure:
1. Take cover off Depos (this is for both highs and lows)
2. Drill hole large enough to fit connectors through and fit grommet securely inside hole
3. Insert H1 bulb HID and run wiring originally going to the H1 bulb out through the new wire and grommet to the ballast, run the wire from the ballast up back through the grommet and back to the light housing
4. Wire the wires from the ballast to the new H1 HID
5. Replace cover, attach ballast to the bumper


As for pictures, Ken, check my Picture Gallery. Every time I drive in the dark I am more and more amazed by the clarity.

Are they street legal? I remember reading something about some of these HID kids not being street legal and having the light not shine in a correct pattern.. think it was a link to a video on here somewhere..

With the stock US lights they are illegal. In fact with any lights they are illegal because they will not self-level. In all practicality though, the Euro lights will suffice because they project in a well defined beam pattern. The US lights won't though, and oncoming traffic will be subjected to oncoming glare. This is why either you should get them to replace the high beams (still illegal but nobody will be affected by it negatively) or get euro lights.

I saw sellers on Ebay sellingh HID bulbs. They are claiming that you just swap the bulbs and get the higher temperature HID advantage. This whole HID thing is so confusing.

Are you talking about xenon look-alike bulbs or real HID's with ballasts? You can get them for $130 or so on eBay I think, but with flaky warranty and stuff.

I currently have Euro Ellipsoid Projectors, will the HID system be an easy install on that? Sorry, i'm kinda illiterate with the whole lighting thing.

Definately, all you gotta do is drill a hole in the back of the low beam side and then just run the wires out. If you need help give me a call.

Nick: I wanna see some picks of the new car.

So if I get the depo headlights they wouldn't be classified as illegal? I'd hate to get pulled over for these if I bought them. I was thinking 6000k or 8000k on lowbeam side.

About drilling into the depos. I was looking at the pictures, is there a piece that seals it tight into the hole after you make room for it? Or can you just pop it in there and have it stay in place with no wiggles.

Depos are technically illegal, but there is no way I can think of for anyone to know. This applies to NJ only. Check your state laws if you're not sure.

About drilling, you need to drill in and it seals itself tightly.
