    Matt at TheRetrofitSource.com is willing to setup a discount code/coupon for our TW members!! These guys have everything you need for a complete conversion of either your stock headlights or in my case a projector swap into non OEM headlights, or if you just want to upgrade lenses, ballasts, bulbs, whatever, they can hook you up and take care of you. He's willing to custom build any kit you need depending on your setup so you don't have to settle for a kit you don't really need.

    Thanks guys!

    UPDATE 3/23/2010

    GB cancelled guys, sorry :(

    I am interested given the price that is involved. I want to convert some black ebay (stock style) lights to a HID retro like Yosh, ElectronMan, etc

    depending on the amount of people interested we'll get between 5 and 10% off and of course no tax. i was given a quote (full price) of 260 for brand new projectors, lenses, bulbs, adapters, harnesses, and shipping. each part bought separately would have been 300. so we're already getting a discount by building the custom kits then he's offering a discount on top

    why do you want 6000k bulbs in projectors? 85122 bulbs will be plenty. you do realize that these are not your moms sissy PNP kits, but actual parts to do an OEM retrofit right?

    as they should be! anyone that wants the 6000k bulbs obviously doesnt know what they are doing and should stick w/ PNP kits...but thats just my personal opinion!:D

    You say that due to the light loss with a 6000k? You recommend 4300-5000k then I figure?

    Ask them if they would do 20-25% off full kits + free shipping if we get a 10+ unit group buy together.

    I would be interested as well. Would he be able to do even better if we can get a groupbuy of 10 people going? I was looking at purchasing within the next month or two.
