    - 25 orders (not # of kits)
    - 25% off
    - No free shipping or other coupons
    - No Osram CBI/SVS bulbs (everything else in kit still valid for discount though)
    - Mini D2S, Mini H1, or FX-R Stage III/IV kits only
    - You can add in other kits but must also have Stage III/IV kits with it on the same order to be eligible.

    http://www.theretrofitsource.com/index.php?cPath=24

    Once we hit 25 people on the list, I'll provide the coupon code to order. All 25 people pay = all 25 orders ship. That easy!

    Thanks again TW!

    How long do these group buys usually take to get filled up? I want to do a Mini H1 kit, but might not have any time to install after January.

    Subbed... if I don't get in on this one, I'll get in on the next.

    Round 11 posted 10/22 and the discount code was posted 11/09, started shipping on the 15th (when 25 people pay, they start shipping), and the buy closed on the 11/16.
    Round 10 posted 9/21 and the discount code was posted 10/01, started shipping on 10/03, and the buy closed on the 10/05.
    Round 9 posted 8/13 and the discount code was posted 8/23, started shipping on 10/03, and the buy closed on the 8/29.
    Andrew posted a thread gauging interest in round 9 on 6/27, but it didn't take off until August
    Round 8 posted 5/21 and the discount code was posted 5/23, started shipping on 5/25, and the buy closed on the 5/28.

    Some were combined with other forums, but as you can see, these things are all over the map as far as timeline.
    My advice, don't post a commitment unless you have the bucks in the bank to cover in case the code is posted "tomorrow"
    We haven't had a GB since November, so people might be itching for this one. I suspect it'll fill up quickly.

    After doing the mini H1 kit, I'm even more curious about the FXR now haha. When I have time and money I think I'll sell my current setup and go that route. Get on this buy, people. You won't be disappointed!

    I didn't order a full kit but rather just some replacement H4 bulbs previously. I ordered the wrong adapter to plug them into my existing ballast setup from another company. Andrew provided over the top service to get me the right adapter fast and I was able to install the replacement bulbs in about 10 minutes and get back to having some headlights.

    A++++ for this company and the service I received from them. Thanks again.

    Removing myself from the list... A friend of mine had the parts already and decided not to do this to his truck so I took them over.

    I'm happy with my FX-Rs. Installing them wasn't to bad but did take a bit of work (there is a good thread in the lighting forum with a how-to). I keep hearing people like their mini's better then halogen's, but then often end up upgrading all the way to the FX-Rs later. I'd recommend getting new headlights to start with (I hear Denso's are only $100). I didn't realize how beat up my headlights were until I was well into the retrofit.
