    FAQ

    Q. Is there a warranty?


    A. Yes. I offer a six month warranty on workmanship. TRS components follow the TRS warranty period. For example, 5Five Ballasts carry a 24 month warranty. 3Five ballasts carry a 60 month warranty. Etc... No hassle warranty. Shipping cost will be taken care of by TRS for U.S. transactions. For owners outside the U.S., you will be responsible for the shipping cost per TRS.

    The cost of shipping the headlight(s) to to me is the original owner's responsibility. I will be responsible for the cost of returning the warrantied headlight(s) to the original owner within the U.S. Sorry, if you are outside the U.S., you pay shipping both ways. This warranty is NOT transferrable. Any modifications and/or tampering of headlights will void the warranty.

    Q. How hard is it to install the headlights and wire harness once I receive them?

    A. If you have a slight bit of mechanical skills, then the installation will not be difficult. The wire harness is plug 'n play, no splicing of the OEM harness is required (unless your lights are equipped with LED Angel Eyes). The new, retrofitted headlight bolts up the same way your old one was removed. Wire harness instructions are included with your shipped headlights as well as online.
    http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pdf/trs_tech/Bi-Xenon MotoControl Relay Harness.pdf

    The OEM headlight aiming mechanism remains fully functional. After your retrofitted headlights are installed, some fine tuning will be required utilizing the OEM adjusters. Fine tuning is defined as matching both the left and right cut-off so that they are level with each other. As a rule of thumb, I recommend aligning the height of the cut-off to be horizontal with the upper trunk line of the average sedan.

    Q. Where can I learn more about retrofitting, projectors and HID bulbs?

    A. The Retrofit Source (TRS) has a tremendous amount of online material to enhance your retrofitting knowledge.
    http://www.theretrofitsource.com/trs_tech.php

    Q. What's the difference between the bulb colors?

    A. Kelvin Ratings: 3000K - Has a golden yellow output perfect for use in fog lights. The yellow light penetrates through snow, rain, and fog more effectively than white or blue light. 4300K - Has a slightly off-white output similar to that of sunlight. Most cars that come equipped with HID headlights from the factory use 4300K bulbs. If you want the most usable light, 4300K is the Kelvin rating for you. 5000K - A pure white output, no tinge of yellow, and no tinge of blue. 6000K+ As you move into the higher kelvin ratings, your light output will appear more bluish-purple in hue, but the bulbs won't be physically as bright. I do not offer 6000k bulbs. As HID bulbs age, they go through what is known as "color-shift". When the bulbs are brand new, the output is whitish-yellow and as physically bright as it will ever be. As the bulbs age with use, their output turns more pure white/bluish and also starts to dim a bit. That's why cars with factory 4300K bulbs that are 5+ years old look like they're running 5000K or higher bulbs.

    I've been building crafted headlights since 2008 and I absolutely enjoy creating for and with my clients. I recently sat down and went over the logistics of creating a better system at RECHELON. I've now come up with a system that will ensure a quick turn around time without sacrificing quality. I've went over every step of the process to make sure the quality meets my expectations. I've been a long time member of TW and appreciate this community. In my time I've met many great Socal locals and they're able to see the quality of the craft in person. I've built over 250 Sets of lights ranging from simple BHLM to Elite Retrofitted Builds.

    I am confident that my long extensive skill set shows in the final product


    I look forward in Crafting & Creating along side with you.

    Kind regards,
    RAD

    Sub'd. Hopefully I can save enough to get in on this group buy before April 5th! I spoke to you on your other thread RAD, regarding sending my own OEM HL. Even though the price is already lowered for this group buy, will it also decrease if I sent my own HL?
