K I think I will start it up and just let people decide if they want to get in now and wait until it ends or wait to get in more towards the end.

You can install it yourself its all plug and play and super easy. The aiming is also fairly easy just park your car in the driveway and mark your halogen lights aim and install hid's. After install check and see if they moved at all and if so just make the small adjustments to get you back to normal. The prices will all be listed in the group buy but for headlights its generally $124.95+shipping.

Depends if you want headlights or foglights. But heads are $124.95+shipping and fogs are $104.95+shipping. You can see in my signature the last group buy and all the prices there.

Thumbs up

They are super bright and the custome service from slim is great. If you wnat some HID slim is a great guy to deal with fast shipping. Thanks for everything slim.

Make sure when you install them that the metal shield is down. if not you will have a hell of a time trying to get them aligned. lol

What's your definition of Xenon ? If your definition of Xenon is blued colored bulbs then no, these would not be them. But if your definition of Xenon means HID (high intensity discharge) lights like you see on higher end vehicles like Lexus, BMW etc. then yes, they would be those.

Damn this site!

OK, I might be interested (as I am in most group buys). First off, what do they replace in the headlight assembly? Just the bulb - in addition to the ballast that is added?

Do they really increase the usable light at night? I have bad eyes and struggle a bit while driving at night. Maybe these would help?

Are they difficult to install?

What is the difference in the numbers (4K, 6K, etc)?


I'm sorry for asking so many questions. And I really appreciate anyone willing to take the time to answer them.

I'm interested in these answers too. I believe that with the numbers, the higher the number, the more blue the light becomes. I think the 4k-5k bulbs put out the most white light? Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

Here's where I got mine:
http://www.vvme.com/bixenon-hid-conv...-44_46_35.html

I had to add $25 for shipping to TX so for under $100 you can get the digital slim ballasts.

This shows the colors:
http://www.vvme.com/digital-slim-h43...cPath=44_46_35

I have the 4300k versions and they are very nice.. been running the non-digital ones for about a year and a half with no issues. The link above is for the H4s that are bixenon so they are replacement for the stock 2nd gen bulbs and handle hi and low beam operations.

Ya anyone looking at doing this they are a big difference especially in the Fog. I am going on 2 yrs now and have not had any problems. I have the H/L beams with the 4800 bulbs. I did half to adjust for on coming traffic cause I drive at nite a lot and was getting flashed back. So I adjusted them a littler lower than normal and no problem.
VERY HAPPY WITH THESE. Thanx SLIM

Haha I feel the same way. I'm pretty sure I'm in too. I just need to know if they'll fit in my Hella black magic offroad lights first. If so, I'm in for headlights, fogs, and offroads. Got to be matching. Doing a little research first. I'm thinking the H1,H2,H3 refers to wattage? Pretty much the only thing I'm trying to figure out right now. That and if I'm going to want 50's for the heads n offroads.

I think Slim got married in March but said he would do the GB in April. I can't wait!

I read through the other group buy and plan to order hi/low heads and low fogs (H4 and H10).

The only dilemma is whether to get the 4300 or 6000!?!?!
